Confidence with Android

We all know java can be a tricky language to work with. What do you think are the best resources and things a begginer can do to maximise their knowlage and understanding of java and android. Your first android project can be intimidating and scary... How can people nearing the end of the android course prepare so that they feel confident and prepared when starting their own real world android projects.

Thankyou :)

Hey Tom,

I have found myself feeling this way as well. I have not landed my first Android developer job but I have done a lot of research on this question. The articles all seem to point in the same direction and that direction is.. Build something of your own.

If you set out to build an app of your own with the knowledge that you have acquired from Tree House you will still run into a ton of issues. However, you will have the tools and basic understanding from Tree House to research through Google and use StackOverflow.com for help. You will have enough knowledge to work through the majority of issues or understand the online help when you find it to fix your issue. I am not going to lie, it has been extremely frustrating but through that frustration comes the best learning and confidence is the result when you fix/build your own stuff.

Hope this helps!
