Six things Every .NET Developer Should Know about Android Development


  1. Import just a class
      • import my_namespace.some_class;
  2. Import a namespace
      • import my_namespace.*;
  3. Java uses the “@override” attribute to override a method
        • All methods are defaulted to “virtual” in Java
  4. Java uses Implements for interfaces and Extends for base classes
  5. Android uses Activities which are essentially their version of controllers
  6. Gradle is Android’s build tool. It’s comparable to MSBuild for .NET
