I’ve been working through the book for about two months now. I’m wondering if my pace is good; I’ve gotten to chapter 11. When it started talking about launching activities and using intents, I had to go back in the book because I forgot how it worked. Am I going to slow, or am I OK? I’m also wondering about making my own app to help me understand the processes better. Should I wait until I’m further, or should I start trying to program an app now?
You’re doing fine. Go at whatever pace it takes for you to absorb the material and konw how to use the concepts. It’s not a competition. And since you’re at chapter 11, yes you can start making your own apps. That’ll help solidify your understanding of the concepts. Good luck!
