Best ways to practice Android App Development

Source

Somewhere in our life, we have definitely heard that practice makes men/women perfect. The more you practice you be confident in your field.

But, while starting anything, we often forget to ask this question that “How will I practice whatever I am learning?”.

If you have asked, then it’s ok. But, don’t press the back button. Because there can be something beneficial for you also.

And, if you haven’t asked, then don’t stop reading this story.

While learning, app development, we try different ways to find answers to the above question(“How will I practice whatever I am learning?”). Some of the ways like Google search, Suggestions from college seniors, any social media friend’s suggestions, etc.

Sometimes, you got the best suggestions of your life, if you will be able to find the right person luckily.

And, sometimes, we got suggestions like try to build apps like calculator, spinner, Android Components App, Tic-Tac-Toe, Counter, etc, or try to build clone apps of large apps like Instagram, Netflix, YouTube, etc.

I am not saying these are bad suggestions for those who have just started learning.

But, this will be not enough when you will try to build apps to real-world problems or work as an Android app developer at some companies.

Then what?

Here, We will explore different ways to practice app development rather than exploring traditional ways of practicing.
