Skills required to become a Java Android developer

The first step toward establishing a successful career as a Java Android developer is learning the necessary skills. Let's take a look at the skills required to become a Java Android developer!


The foundation of android development is Java. It is an object-oriented programming language (OOPS). There will be a learning curve for developers who use other languages to create applications as well as for those learning Java. Java ensures that all codes are clear and perform their functions efficiently.

2. XML

XML is used to encode data in internet-based applications. It has many similarities to HTML because it is a structured markup language. It allows for the quick and easy exchange of information between devices in an understandable manner. Developers use XML to create layouts that serve as the foundational UI definition for Android applications. As a result, developers must have a basic understanding of XML.


SDKs, or Software Development Kits, are modules that allow developers to access functions such as cameras. If you want to integrate Facebook (or any other social media platform) with your app, you can do so using the library. Gradle, for example. All you need to do is download the code from Facebook and notify Gradle that you're using it. When the application compiles, the code remains in place. Many additional examples make it easier to use and integrate your app.

4. APIs

As a developer, you must keep in mind that your users may require the use of a third-party service for certain features. That is the purpose of APIs. APIs describe how to query your data in a secure manner. You can connect to any existing APIs or create your own through your app.

5. IDE (Integrated Development Environment):

Android Studio is the most popular IDE for Android app developers. It provides many SDK support features and auto-complete suggestions as you type the code. If you want to land a good opportunity, we recommend that you have a basic understanding of IDE.
