Learn how to add a powerful cloud database, notification services and analytics tracking to your Android application.
Building stand alone applications that only function and save their data on the device that they are installed on is becoming obsolete and not feasible. With the increased use of mobile devices, it is common for applications to offer ways to backup, sync and share data in the cloud.
A type of backend is usually needed where data can be saved and manipulated but this requires time, resources and skills to make it work. Fortunately, there are several platforms like Parse that provide a backend that we as developers can integrate with our applications.
This course will introduce the popular Parse SDK and show you how to integrate it with your Android applications in order to save application data in the cloud.
Content and Overview of the course
This course will mainly focus on the Parse SDK, but in order to build our final application we will also do some basic Android coding. This course includes:
