Ι recently graduated from a university with a computer science degree and i decided to try to go solo on creating apps on Android, mostly games i guess, at least create a few and see where it goes. I have read a bunch of articles on google about starting up but i was wondering what recommendations people over here would give to a beginner on the subject. I was thinking of something like reading a book or watching some video courses that would contain most of the info i would need in one place, something like a guide that would include all the steps i need. However, it should have been made sure that the info should be up to date. From what i searched Java is the language i will be using, i can code in Java so thats cool, i am more worried about which tools i will be using and generally whatever i need to know from the technical aspects of the whole app creation thing. Also, i would like to know about your opinions about how likely it is to earn a proper salary by creating apps on your own if you have a few good ideas and creating passive income from them without actually needing to overwork yourself to death just to make a few dollars.

What I have tried:

Come up with a problem, and then start writing code to solve it. This has always worked for me when wanting to learn something new.

Website from where you download Android Studio contains all the information required by a developer to start Android application development from zero. I see a featured article on their website '11 Weeks of Android' to learn all the new things, planned and scheduled[^].

1. Go through documentation and try. General best practices and tools to be used by developer are mentioned here: Android Developers[^]
2. If you like to learn looking at existing projects, believe GitHub[^] repositories would help. Even CodeProject resources are good.

About making money, there are options like In-App purchases. An answer here by one of the CP member details them: Selling items in Android Game[^]

Lastly, learn and share. That would help you overall across. Happy Learning!
