This book is about small computers, that work continuously and unattended, that do not have a keyboard or display, that are there and do for what they were built. That won't be shut down, instead get powered off at the utmost.

And above all this book is about how to build such a thing.

This is a translation of the german book "Linux kopflos - mit PC Engines ALIX"

The goal of this book is to teach the skills necessary to develop Android based applications using the Android Studio development environment and the Android 5.0 Software Development Kit (SDK).

Beginning with the basics, this book provides an outline of the steps necessary to set up an Android development and testing environment. An overview of Android Studio is included covering areas such as tool windows, the code editor and the Designer tool. An introduction to the architecture of Android is followed by an in-depth look at the design of Android applications and user interfaces using the Android Studio environment. More advanced topics such as database management, content providers and intents are also covered, as are touch screen handling, gesture recognition, camera access and the playback and recording of both video and audio. This edition of the book also covers features such as printing, transitions and cloud-based file storage.

In addition to covering general Android development techniques, the book also includes Google Play specific topics such as implementing maps using the Google Maps Android API, in-app billing and submitting apps to the Google Play Developer Console.

Chapters also cover advanced features of Android Studio such as Gradle build configuration and the implementation of build variants to target multiple Android device types from a single project code base.

Assuming you already have some Java programming experience, are ready to download Android Studio and the Android SDK, have access to a Windows, Mac or Linux system and ideas for some apps to develop, you are ready to get started.

 Johannes Loxen sagte in seiner Keynote zum Frühjahrsfachgespräch 2012 der GUUG über den Unterschied von Closed-Source und Open-Source Software : "Wenn es nicht funktioniert, hörst Du bei Closed-Source auf zu denken und rufst den Hersteller-Support an. Bei Open-Source fängt das Denken dann erst richtig an". Dieses Buch ist für alle, die nicht nur intensiv sondern vor allem auch strukturiert nachdenken wollen.

In vielen Jahren als Systemadministrator hat der Autor sehr oft auch bei technisch versierten Menschen grundlegende Mängel bei der Fehlersuche in Linux-Serversystemen sowie in IP-Netzwerken ausgemacht.

Daher hat der Autor seine Erfahrungen bei der Fehlersuche systematisch aufbereitet um denjenigen eine Hilfe an die Hand zu geben, die Probleme mit Linux-Serversystemen oder IP-Netzwerken analysieren wollen. Das Buch behandelt beide Themen, da sich einerseits Linux-Systeme aus verschiedenen Gründen sehr gut zur Analyse von Netzwerkproblemen eignen und andererseits der Einsatz von Linux selbst zu Problemen führen kann, für die das Buch Hilfestellung geben will.

Das Buch setzt drei Schwerpunkte. Im ersten Teil geht es um allgemeine Methoden, Heuristiken und Herangehensweisen, die bei beliebigen Problemen eingesetzt werden können. Der zweite Teil konzentriert sich auf Probleme von Linux-Systemen selbst und der dritte Teil schließlich behandelt die Analyse von Netzwerkproblemen mit Hilfe von Linux-Systemen.

Natürlich kann das Buch nicht alle Probleme lösen, doch soll es den Leser befähigen, seine eigenen Probleme strukturierter anzugehen und damit besser, schneller und gründlicher zu lösen.
