Mobile Development with Android

Hey guys! So, I'm completely new to mobile development for Android and I was wondering on where should I start first and also what's the fastest way to learn mobile development. I'm currently reading through the documentation and a couple of articles about it.

Hi Jean!
Would learning Kotlin be hard? I also have a Java background and both languages kinda tie in together. So, dodge the Android Documentation and focus more on tutorial videos and courses?

Learning Kotlin is worthwhile but not hard, especially with a Java background !

Once you are there, try to find someone that can guide you learning Android.
Especially someone who can evaluate tutorials for you can and can say whether it's still legit and relevant in 2020, or should be skipped entirely.

raywenderlich.com/ may be a good resource.
