    We recently had the opportunity to collaborate with the fine team at Syncfusion to offer you one of their popular eBooks, JavaScript Succinctly, in session form.

    JavaScript Succinctly was written to give readers an accurate, concise examination of JavaScript objects and their supporting nuances, such as complex values, primitive values, scope, inheritance, the head object, and more. If you’re an intermediate JavaScript developer and want to solidify your understanding of the language, or if you've only used JavaScript beneath the mantle of libraries such as jQuery or Prototype, this is the session for you.

    Welcome to the series on learning the Android SDK from scratch! If you want to start developing Android applications, this session will teach you the skills necessary from the very beginning. If you have any programming or coding experience at all it will help, but we will try to assume as little knowledge as possible.

    We will start by setting up the Android development resources on your computer and work through to create completely functional Android applications. Android development involves a few distinct types of skill, but if you focus on each one in turn, you can build a solid foundation for working on the platform. Once we get the initial setup tasks out of the way, we will head right into the development process! You will be working towards concrete results in no time!
