Argumentsabout Android Book

Androidoperating systems is a trending technology based on Linux and usedmajorly in tablets and smartphones. Android systems were firstdeveloped by a startup firm in 2003 and later bought by Google in2005. Since then, these stream of technology has made life quiteenjoyable. Various versions have come into play due to the firstchanging pace of technology. This paper, therefore, aims to providesystematic technological arguments in the Android book “Androidapplication development all-in-one for dummies. John Wiley &ampSons, 2015” by Burd, Barry A.


In the current society, the technology is used interchangeably bydifferent people across the professional divide. Some use the termcorrectly while others use for lack of a better word to describe thecontext of the operation. Technology defines a collection of skills,methods, techniques and processes utilized in the accomplishment ofobjectives or production of goods or services such as scientificinvestigation (Burd 46). Based on the texts, significanttechnological arguments spring forth.

TheAndroid operating system continues to grow and offers the applicationdevelopers a great platform. It provides step by step by stepdevelopment process of the system from scratch. That points to thedevelopment aspect of technology from one stage to another. Thatinforms the system development cycle from the initial planning stageto deployment level. An omission to any stage in the systemdevelopment life may automatically lead to a failure in theperformance of the designed application (Burd 57). Technology informsa continuous process with the aim of creating change. It has evolvedthrough a stable process from nonrealistic conceptual frameworks tostable and operational systems that we enjoy today.

Anotherargument about Android systems is the unbeatable speed. One keyfactor that points to technological advancement on every currentsystem in the market is speed. It should have a higher rate ofoperation than the previous one for the technology to be consideredadvanced. Every aspect of the training is crafted to assist one buildapps has an increased speed. The system needs speed and technologicaladvancements ranging from high productivity visual developments topowerful tools to deploy and manage the applications (Burd 79). Thesystems should be delivered at a faster rate and changes made soeasily. Some aspects of unbeatable speed learned from the textinclude, first, single-click deployment. That offer app and updatesthem with a single click. The system tracks changes and handlesdeployment process and database scripts. That further makes lifeeasier. Second, the in-app feedback is developed that ensures thesystem functions in more refined manner and faster. The users canshare voice and written feedback inside the app, and that simplifiesthe entire process of change management. Third, an aspect ofautomatic refactoring in which all models are analyzed and at thatinstant, refactors the dependencies, the database is modified and allthe queries automatically updated. With these strategies as mentionedearlier, the development time becomes reduced and the market shareincreases (Burd 84).

Onekey aspect of technology is its ability to accomplish differentsystems integration. That offers central ERP and CRM solutions andAging legacy systems. Further, integration can ensure thecustomization of applications that track power factories andsatellites (Burd 86). Arguably, integration of different systemmodules is a key component that provides expansion in various setups.

Throughthe android technology, enterprise-grade systems are developed thatpossess enterprise features. That can range from deployments tomission critical solutions with millions of users. Such criticalsystems are found in banks, factories, and satellite applications.The Android systems have so far ensured increased security ofinformation through the various data protection mechanisms (Burd 77).Further, the Android systems provide scalability of data and thus,can handle the dynamics of a changing work environment, and as such,effectively accommodates growth. Also, through this operatingsystems, flexible deployment and improved performance is realized.

Furtheranalysis of the text indicates the unbreakable deployment of theAndroid systems. That ensures that applications change faster.Further through the technology, there are decreased maintenancecosts. Well-developed Android applications provide that no matter howhumongous the change is, the apps remain architecturally sound andfunctional (Meier 94).

Androidtechnology has further enhanced programming knowledge that ensuresthe apps always run at peak levels. Metrics, for instance, real-timedata assists you identify anything can need to be corrected oroptimized. That ensures that costs remain low and users of the systemdelighted (Burd 25). This kind of coding ensures that there isautomated instrumentation of all layers of mobile and webapplications. Further, applications are monitored, and changes inperformance noted as the usage expands.

Lastly,Android applications are instrumental in facilitating centralizedmanagement of operations. All the different parts of the system arecontrolled by a single centralized machine. That defines primetechnology that eases management of transactions (Meier 99).

Onthe other hand, Android technology offers complexity concerning appcoding. The underlying architecture is diverse and complicated andthus, necessitates thorough knowledge and research to do the coding(Meier 109). Further, customized applications offer limitedscalability and thus not useful in developing enterprise-gradesystems.


Itcan censoriously be summarized that Android technology is a currentand progressive body of knowledge. Technology births the requiredtransformation in a line of particular line of need in the society.Through the text, android technology has proved essential inunbeatable speed, low cost, scalability of applications, unbreakabledeployments among others. Complexity in coding remains a bottleneckin Android development.
