About

Mark Murphy, founder of CommonsWare, writes a lot.

Books

From 2008 through 2021, Mark wrote a series of books on Android app development. These books are now available for free download from the CommonsWare site.

His most recent books have been focused on second-generation Android app development (Kotlin and the Android Jetpack):

  • Elements of Android Jetpack, a new introductory book on Android app development, focused on second-generation techniques.

  • Exploring Android, a series of step-by-step tutorials for building an Android app from scratch. This book demonstrates app development using Kotlin, coroutines, and the Jetpack libraries.

  • Elements of Android Room, to help you incorporate Google's reactive object wrapper around SQLite.

  • Elements of Android R, to help you deal with the changes introduced by Android 11 (code-named "R"). It covers everything from scoped storage changes to data access auditing to sharing UIs between apps to bubbles.

  • Elements of Kotlin, a guide to the Kotlin programming language, which is rapidly gaining in popularity for Android app development.

  • Elements of Kotlin Coroutines, exploring Kotlin's new first-class reactive programming system.

In the beginning, Android development was focused on Java and, partially, on the Android Support Library. Mark's earliest books share that focus:

Things Other Than Books

He runs the jetc.dev weekly newsletter for Jetpack Compose.

Heck, he even has a blog.
