How to become an Android/Java developer ?

The mobile market is constantly growing. We all know that the mobile market is dominated by android in many countries. As per the latest reports, android has over 85% share in countries like India, Brazil, Iran, Turkey and many more. Although many programming languages are used for mobile application development, Java is the most popular one. Java was introduced in 1995 and is used for many purposes like mobile application development, web application, application servers and game development.

Therefore, we need java for android application development. Android is an open-source operating system and is used in mobile phones, tablets, etc. Android has a huge market. According to the data, it has approximately 3.48 million apps on Google Play, the app store which further boosts its popularity.

What is the scope in Android/Java development?

Android has over 2.5 billion users in over 190 countries making it the most popular operating system in the world. Therefore the demand for android/ java development is at an all-time high. But what makes Java so unique is that it is required for android app development. Let's look at the features of Java that make it so important.

  • Excellent programming tools: Java offers various powerful tools that make the language much easier for app developers to build an app that meets their needs. This not only helps you in coding but also assists it for debugging important for real-time applications.
  • Independent platform: Java is independent of the platform and preferred by developers in building android applications. Other developing languages have this limitation, and that’s what makes them popular among the developer community.
  • Easy to learn:Java is free, and you don’t need to spend loads of money to get started. With regular practice and knowledge, you can learn the language and make a career out of it.
  • Builds secure mobile applications: Security is one of the most important parts of any application. Everything- compiler, interpreter, and runtime environment has been developed in java to keep it secure for the users.

How to become an Android/Java developer?

If you want to become an android/ Java developer, you need to have knowledge, consistent practice and hard work. The basic path is to lay a foundation by getting a bachelor’s degree in computer science and climb all the way up to become an android/ java developer.

Now, let’s dive further into the skills you need to master to become a proficient android/ Java developer:

Skills required to become an Android/Java developer

The first step to building your career as a successful Android/Java developer is to know about the essential skills required to become one. Let’s have a look at what skills you need to know in order to become an Android/Java developer!


Java is the foundation of android development. It is an object-oriented language (OOPS). For developers who use other languages to create applications, there will be a learning curve while learning java for them as well. All the codes should be clear and perform functions efficiently, and that’s what Java ensures.

2. XML

To encode data in internet-based applications, XML is used. Being a structured markup language, it shares many features with HTML. It enables the quick and fast exchange of information between devices in an easy to understand manner. XML is used by developers to create layouts that serve as a foundational UI definition for Android applications. So developers need to have a basic understanding of XML.


Software Development Kit or SDK, are modules that let developers access functions like a camera. Suppose you want to integrate Facebook (any social media platform) with your app, you do it with the help of the library. i.e Gradle. All you have to do is download the code from Facebook and tell Gradle you’re using it. Whenever the application complies the code stays in place. Many other examples make it easier to use and plug in your app.


As a developer, you have to keep in mind that your users might need a third-party service for some features. That’s what APIs are for. APIs tell you how you can query your data in a secured way. You can either connect with any existing APIs or connect to your own from your app.

5. Integrated Development Environment (IDE)

Android studio is the most preferred IDE among android mobile app developers. It offers you many SDK support features and provides auto-complete suggestions when one types the code. If you’re looking to land a good opportunity, we suggest you have a basic understanding of IDE.
