Introduction to Android Services

Android Services are one of the main and most important elements in the Android platform.
Acting as your hidden (no UI) agents, Services can be used to do anything from background music playing to heavy duty actions running on their own process

In this introductory hands-on session, we will learn how Android Services work, the different types of services and what you can do with them.

The lecture is intended to Android beginners. Highly recommended to bring your laptops.

    It was a very good lecture about Services, which is not a simple subject at all. moreover for a beginner developer.
    The lecture was followed by good explanations and examples.

    The subject and content were great, the lecture was a bit dull.

      add more examples, Ynet is not a good example of Service, I would have lots of examples. Have more tips and tricks, and not debug the flow of a service - this wasted most of the lecture. I guess there are lots more tips here, those are my selected two.

      I didn't use them before, As I said Ynet is not a good example, it doesn't show communication between activities, and it is not a real offline app and choosing it to show offline and communication between activities was bad. I think that having more examples was necessary. more visual aids instead of debugging onCreate would give better idea of what services are.

      Send Asynch requests to a server / update your DB, perform intense CPU calculations and so on...
      Bound services are also a way to communication between your activities.
      All of these topics will be covered in the lecture.
