In this course, we will learn about a very common and important element of Android development: downloading data from the Internet! We will request weather forecast data from a free API provided by darksky.net. We will then parse that data (in JSON format) and display it in a single-page app. We will also see how to handle errors and situations when the network is unavailable.
