A Note on IDEs1:02 with Ben Jakuben
There are two main IDEs in use for Android development: Eclipse and Android Studio. Which should you use, and why?
Hey there Android student, before you get started with this project,
I wanna talk briefly about the development tools.
You probably completed: Build a Simple Android App, using Android Studio.
But, in this project, we're using Eclipse as the IDE.
For most of the time Android's been around Eclipse was the main IDE for
Android development which is why we originally used it for all of our courses.
That changed with the introduction of Android Studio.
Now that Android Studio is the recommended official tool, and also because more and
more developers are using it.
We are refreshing these courses to use the do tools.
The code itself won't change much if at all.
You can download Eclipse and
follow along knowing that the skills you learn will apply just the same in
Android Studio or you can proceed with these lessons using Android Studio and
just navigate the differences with help from the forum or teacher's notes.
Either way, don't let the tools get in your way.
The actual programming concepts and the code are the important parts.
Alright, I hope you enjoy this course.
