Best way and importance of android training for Better Future Growth

by Mathew R. Author & Writer

Android is a Linux based operating system, which is not just limited to mobile devices. Created by Palo Alto in the year 2003, Android was launched primarily for touch screen devices like smartphone and tablets but today it is being used by computers, notebooks, smartphones, electronic book readers, set-top boxes, televisions etc. Google acquired Android in the year 2005 and since then has been performing regular updates along with an annual major update. Various companies like Samsung, Sony, Lenovo, and LG are using Android as their OS. Operating System (OS) acts as a medium between the user and the features of the device. It is because of the OS that any user can interact with the features of the devices without any hassle. It has become important for every aspiring developer to understand Android operating system thoroughly.

Google handles this open source project under AOSP (Android Open Source Project). AOSP is used as a base by Google to create its version of Android, which then is used by the other manufacturers. Being an open source platform really helps the company. It allows the manufacturer to customize the software and make it their own and this is the reason why Android looks different on every device. 'Stock Android' is the purest form of Android. Android architecture is categorized into 5 sections: 


Applications 


The first and foremost layer is an Android Application where the applications are installed, like Games, Messages, Contacts, etc. 


 Android Interface


The second layer is Android Interface that helps the developers to use all the libraries. Some of the main interfaces are mentioned below: 


  • Activity Manager helps in keeping a track of all the activities in the device. 
  • Telephony Manager manages the data related to subscriber information, like phone numbers. 
  • View System handles the views and layout that further manages the user interface. 
  • Location manager manages the device’s location. 

Android Runtime 

This is another important layer in the architecture and provides one of the most important components, DVM. Dalvik Virtual Machine is specially designed for Android. This Virtual Machine ensures that various applications run efficiently on a single device. 

Libraries

Next comes, the Android Libraries that are composed of C/C++ and other different open source tools. These comprise of the following: 
  • The Android runtime is made up of ART (the Android RunTime) and JAVA. 
  •  Open graphics library helps the user to produce 2D and 3D computer graphics. It is cross-language, cross-platform application program interface (API) 
  •  WebKit is an open source web browser engine that easily loads a web page and provides all the functionality to display web content. 
  • It is because of Media frameworks that the user can play and record audio and videos. 
  • And the last is SSL (Secure Socket Layer) that provides full security on the internet  

Linux kernel

It is the last section in the architecture. Android is based on the powerful Linux kernel and is responsible for device drivers. It is because of Linux Kernel that full security is maintained between the application and the system. In addition to that, memory management and process management provides the developers with full freedom to develop the applications. It also provides effective network communication

Android is the world’s number one operating system that owns approximately 76.61% of Worldwide Operating System Market. Below mentioned are a few categories of android applications that are present in the market: 

  •  Entertainment 
  • Communication 
  • Productivity 
  •  Personalization 
  • Social 
  • Media and Video 
  • Travel and Local etc

The code names of Android range from A to P currently, like Aestro, Blender, Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lollipop and Marshmallow, Nougat, Oreo and Pie. There are various benefits of using Android:  

  • Options: Since Android is an open source OS, users get millions of options to choose the gadget. From cheapest to the most expensive one, various options are available.  
  •  Google: Since Android is maintained by Google, all Google services are supported by Android.  
  • Open source: This allows each manufacturer to customize this software in their own unique way.
