    I do object to people that say "check which version of windows you are running". I am running X11. Is that the answer you require? NO. Do you mean which version of M$WINDOWS you are running? I don't know how to find that out because I am running linux.

    PERFECT video for a student like me with basic Java skills and the wish to program an app 🙂 A lot of videos are always from the scratch

    Hi everyone. I'm looking for google play consoles to buy, where can i find someone willing to sell? I'm interested in consoles with working apps or games that are older than half a year.

    Wow, I wish I would've found this video earlier. Now I can actually try this process out. Got a few great game ideas I would love to see made into an Android app. Thanks for a great explanation.

    Today, I wrote my first Android app. I wrote it with the latest Android SDK. Some of the layouts were different, but I figured it out.
    The steepest of learning curves usually involve the boilerplate aspects of development. I have no trouble with coding. I've been doing it for decades. I was even coding Java professionally five years ago. But getting past that entry point for a new environment or platform is often the stickiest bit. This video was exactly what I needed to get my first Android app running. Thanks!!
    Surf Wisely.

    The Dev-Domain is meant for developers.

    The ICANN process of introducing new Top Level Domains continues. The registry of the Dev-Domains has set the 16th of January 2019 as the start of the Sunrise Period. Interested parties for the Sunrise Period must register with the Trademark Clearinghouse .

    Developments have now their own more secure home on the web: the Dev-Domain, the most relevant TLD for website and software developers.
    Key points about Dev-Domain:
    The Dev-Domain is an open TLD with a focus on improved security. The entire .Dev TLD has been added to the HSTS preload list, which means registrants will have to provision and set up SSL certificates in order for their content to be loaded in modern browsers

    The Dev-Domain is a secure namespace, meaning that HTTPS is required for all .Dev websites. You can buy your Dev-Domain now, but in order for it to work properly in browsers you must first configure HTTPS serving. You can acquire webspace with pre-configured encryption at Secura GmbH without any additional costs or SSL Certificates.

    The App-Domains and Software-Domains are alternative choices for websites concerning software.
