Android SDK vs .NET: What are the differences?
Android SDK: An SDK that provides you the API libraries and developer tools necessary to build, test, and debug apps for Android. Android provides a rich application framework that allows you to build innovative apps and games for mobile devices in a Java language environment; .NET: A free, cross-platform, open source developer platform for building many different types of applications. .NET is a general purpose development platform. With .NET, you can use multiple languages, editors, and libraries to build native applications for web, mobile, desktop, gaming, and IoT for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and more.
Android SDK and .NET can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Android development", "Necessary for android" and "Android studio" are the key factors why developers consider Android SDK; whereas "Tight integration with visual studio", "Stable code" and "Great community" are the primary reasons why .NET is favored.
.NET is an open source tool with 11.1K GitHub stars and 2.4K GitHub forks. Here's a link to .NET's open source repository on GitHub.
