Introducing the Project1:24 with Ben Deitch
Practicing what you've learned is perhaps the best way to improve your skills. In this video I introduce a project that will give you a chance to show off what you've learned.
This may seem like a lot, but the best way to learn Android is with practice. Don't miss out on a learning opportunity by going straight to watching how I did it. But if you do get stuck or your starting to feel frustrated, please watch how I did it or download my project from Downloads.
Project Specs - Golf Scorecard
- There should be a list of 18 Holes
- There should be an easy way to add/subtract strokes to each hole
- It should remember the scores we set (even if we close the app)
- It should contain a 'Clear Strokes' button which will reset all stroke counts to 0
- Create a note taking app
- Create a calculator app
- Create a sudoku app
Congratulations on making it through another Android course at Treehouse.
You've learned a ton about Android and
it's time that we put your Android knowledge to the test.
In this video, I'll present a mock up for an app and
describe how it should work, then you'll get the chance to make it.
In the rest of the videos,
I will be demonstrating how I choose to make the app.
If you ever get stuck, feel free to come back and see how I did it.
We're going to be making a scorecard, more specifically, a golf scorecard.
On our golf scorecard, we want a list of all 18 holes, and
we want each hole to have an easy way for us to add or subtract strokes taken, so
we can keep track of our score.
We'd also like for the scorecard to remember our scores.
It shouldn't delete any scores unless we hit the clear strokes button,
which should reset all the stroke counts to zero.
Here's a rough mock up of what it should look like and
what it should look like when you click the menu button.
All right, let's see what you can do.
Again, don't hesitate to come see how I did it.
You may find a few tricky parts.
You may also want to revisit our course on lists and adapters for
help with the list of scores.
Once you finish, if you want some more projects to practice with,
check the teacher's notes for some additional ideas.
