Android Android Tools Getting Started with Android Studio Setting Up a Project in Android Studio

I wonder why we get terached again how to set up a project etc?

I mean, it was already explained before in detail. Why explain it again? The Android Development course seems really redundant.

It looks like maybe longer ago the videos in this track started with eclipse. When I started this track it actually started with Android Studio though - not eclipse. It looks like maybe they re-made some of the earlier videos with Android Studio - but didn't re-work the track or later videos, so that those of us that started on the track more recently get taught Android Studio twice. I agree that this video has an older version of Android studio than the earlier videos were made on.

sometimes its good to go over things as it might stick second time.. also not everyone may do all the courses...

Heh... I guess that's true, but the more advanced videos are even using an older version of Android Studio as the first ones...

The tools change very often, so while it seems redundant, I think it is a good idea to break it out separately so that future changes can be quickly integrated.
