I listed what we will be going over in this lesson below, if you know java you may want to just setup the stuff listed below. Because after we set those items up, I will just be quickly going over some java code, and briefly describing what it means. If you are a beginner, you will most likely be confused by the end of this lesson, but I promise you will understand after watching the next few lessons, so, please don't be discouraged if you don't completely understand everything mentioned in this tutorial. Just know that it is hard to describe everything in depth within 10 minutes. Thanks again for watching

This video is the 6th in a web series that I am creating to help you learn Android programming so you can create apps and eventually how to learn to write games for android phones. I want to explain things in a way that everyone can understand, even if you have no experience with Java, XML, C, OpenGL, or as a matter of fact, any other programming language.

If you do have a lot of experience with programming, these first videos will be really slow for you, but my goal is to get everyone sprinting, but for now we have learn to crawl.
