Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to explain the basics of application development in the context of mobile applications and work with a corresponding development environment (e. g. Android Studio).
They will be familiar with the basic concepts of the Android operating system (e. g. activities, intents, services and threads) and can plan and implement applications independently.
Students will put the above mentioned topics to the test in exercises. This will enable them to develop an integrated solution for a given task in a final project independently and in a problem-oriented manner.
