Welcome to my Q&A. It’s Live, and it works best when people asks questions :). I don’t have all the answers, but I can often point you in the right direction.
Happy to discuss:
Android Framework and APIs (RecyclerView, Fragment…)
Software Architecture (Clean, MVP, MVC, Design Patterns, SOLID Principles…)
Test Driven Development (Unit Testing, Problem Statements…)
Online Portfolio Building, Job Application and Interview Tips
Interesting off topic discussion

Android Architecture | How to Arrange Classes and Packages by Layer and Feature
As a Beginner, I had a hard time understanding how to lay out my Android Application’s Package and Class Structure. Although this may seem like a trivial topic, what I hope to demonstrate and explain in this Video, is that your Package Structure and Naming Conventions should be a source of information, not confusion, as to how an Application’s Architecture is laid out.
Whether you follow my approach exactly (a hybrid of Package By Layer and Package by Feature) or not isn’t important; just be consistent and make thoughtful decisions.

Best Way To Learn Coding: Why Online Courses Are Perfect For Beginners Learning Java & Android:
This video’s topic on my blog: http://javaprogrammingforbeginners.com/mistakes-beginners-make-when-first-learning-java-and-android/
When first learning programming in java it can be hard to grasp the java programming basics needed to become a competent coder.
I get it.
I was (and still am) a beginner to coding and I struggled heavily in the beginning to make progress.
Eventually, I stuck through the process and learned Java basics in 1 month and Android development in 2 months with a program called Team Treehouse…
…but I made a lot of mistakes along the way.
This post will be about the 3 biggest mistakes I made when first learning to code and how you can avoid them.
Here are the 3 most common mistakes that beginners make when they are first learning Java and Android Development:
1.) Neglecting Existing Libraries
As a beginner to coding, you should use all the resources available to you…
A library, in programming terms, is a collection of code that is often consolidated to perform a very specific task.
These are basically “done-for-you” programs that perform tasks to solve problems
Libraries are often open-source (open and free to the world to reproduce, modify, and distribute)
So, the biggest point about libraries is that they offer existing and proven solutions to problems/challenges coders face.
This can be relating to handling images, network communications in an app….anything.
Why solve a problem that has already been solved and tested by thousands of people?
Here’s what’s great about libraries:
-They are easy to implement
2.) Not Using Cheap/Free Resources
Learning to code doesn’t have to be expensive…
Information these days can be found anywhere online and it’s your job to go out there and access that knowledge.
Although I can say that paying for courses has these advantages:
-You get quality instruction that is comprehensive
I personally have been a member of Team Treehouse for years and I don’t regret a dime I’ve spent.
Finally, the most common (and damaging) things that new coders neglect are…

Android Architecture | How do MVC, MVP, MVVM fit into a Clean Architecture?
I got a great question from my Livestream, and I thought it was worth cutting into it’s own Video. The point of this Video, was to try and shed some light on what all of these things mean MVC/MVVM/MVP and how the fit into a ‘Clean’ Architecture on the Android platform.
