Course Name: Building a Pokédex App with Jetpack Compose The world of Pokémon has captured the hearts and imaginations of millions of people worldwide. For years, fans of this iconic franchise have relied on the Pokédex to keep track of their favorite creatures, their stats, and their evolution paths. Now, with the introduction of Jetpack Compose, it's easier than ever to create an app that captures the essence of the Pokédex experience. In this course, you'll learn how to build a fully-functional Pokédex app using Jetpack Compose. Jetpack Compose is a modern UI toolkit for building Android apps that uses a declarative programming model to simplify UI development. It provides a set of composable UI components that can be easily combined to create custom layouts and designs. The course will begin with an introduction to Jetpack Compose and its core concepts, such as composable functions and state management. You'll then dive into building the Pokédex app, starting with the user interface. You'll learn how to create custom UI components using Compose, and how to use them to build a beautiful and responsive layout that displays information about each Pokémon. Once you've created the user interface, you'll move on to integrating data into your app. You'll learn how to fetch data from the internet using the Pokémon API, and how to store and manage data locally using Room, a Jetpack library for database management. You'll also learn how to use Kotlin coroutines to handle asynchronous tasks, such as network requests and database queries. Throughout the course, you'll work on building a complete Pokédex app that allows users to browse through a list of Pokémon, view detailed information about each one, and save their favorite Pokémon to a personal collection. By the end of the course, you'll have a deep understanding of Jetpack Compose and its capabilities, and you'll have a fully-functional Pokédex app that you can be proud of. Whether you're a seasoned Android developer or just starting out, this course is perfect for anyone who wants to learn how to use Jetpack Compose to build beautiful and functional apps.
