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
[MUSIC] 0:00 Congratulations on making it through another Android course at Treehouse. 0:04 You've learned a ton about Android and 0:08 it's time that we put your Android knowledge to the test. 0:10 In this video, I'll present a mock up for an app and 0:14 describe how it should work, then you'll get the chance to make it. 0:17 In the rest of the videos, 0:22 I will be demonstrating how I choose to make the app. 0:23 If you ever get stuck, feel free to come back and see how I did it. 0:27 We're going to be making a scorecard, more specifically, a golf scorecard. 0:31 On our golf scorecard, we want a list of all 18 holes, and 0:36 we want each hole to have an easy way for us to add or subtract strokes taken, so 0:40 we can keep track of our score. 0:45 We'd also like for the scorecard to remember our scores. 0:47 It shouldn't delete any scores unless we hit the clear strokes button, 0:50 which should reset all the stroke counts to zero. 0:55 Here's a rough mock up of what it should look like and 0:58 what it should look like when you click the menu button. 1:01 All right, let's see what you can do. 1:05 Again, don't hesitate to come see how I did it. 1:07 You may find a few tricky parts. 1:11 You may also want to revisit our course on lists and adapters for 1:13 help with the list of scores. 1:16 Once you finish, if you want some more projects to practice with, 1:19 check the teacher's notes for some additional ideas. 1:22
