If you're an Android developer, you have access to an assortment of cloud-based services that can help you create and deliver a high-quality app. In this course, Albert Lo shines a spotlight on some of the most popular services and tools for Android developers, and demonstrates how they work by implementing them in a power failure monitoring application. He explores how to use Crashlytics to troubleshoot crashes, use Fabric.io to deploy an app for remote users so they can beta test it externally, structure the codebase to use any analytics provider, use Firebase remote configuration to configure parameters in runtime, and more.Topics include:
- Configuring Android Studio
- Getting started with Fabric.io
- Preparing for Fabric.io release
- Deploying to Fabric.io Beta
- Testing beta deployment
- Setting up Fabric.io Answers
- Defining and implementing the analytics model
- Defining interfaces for analytics
- Defining and implementing the analytics trackers
- Implementing the analytics client
- Setting up a Firebase console
- Testing Firebase authentication
- Implementing and verifying remote configuration
- [Instructor] There are many cloud-based tools and services available to help Android developers deliver a quality app. Additionally, one of the most important components of mobile engagement is analytics. This is essential for companies who want to grow revenue by attracting and retaining users. Hello, I'm Albert Lo. I've been developing for the Android platform for over four years, and some of the published apps have millions of users. In this course, I will introduce you to some of the most popular tools and services available for Android developers.
We'll start by learning about how a service like Crashlytics can help us troubleshoot crashes. Next, we'll learn how to use Fabric IO to deploy an app to remote users for beta testing. We'll explore mobile analytics providers, including Twitter and Flurry, and learn some basic techniques on how to use analytics effectively. We'll use design patterns so that we can easily switch between any mobile analytics provider. Lastly, we'll learn how to authenticate the user using Firebase Authentication, and configure parameters in runtime using Firebase Remote Configuration.
Okay, we've got a lot to cover, so let's get started.
