What is Android SDK?

Android provides a rich application framework that allows you to build innovative apps and games for mobile devices in a Java language environment.

What is MEAN?

MEAN (Mongo, Express, Angular, Node) is a boilerplate that provides a nice starting point for MongoDB, Node.js, Express, and AngularJS based applications. It is designed to give you a quick and organized way to start developing MEAN based web apps with useful modules like Mongoose and Passport pre-bundled and configured.

What is Spring Boot?

Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring based Applications that you can "just run". We take an opinionated view of the Spring platform and third-party libraries so you can get started with minimum fuss. Most Spring Boot applications need very little Spring configuration.

      So we very, very early on, we were iOS only, then we thought, well we’re missing out on half of the market. We need to add Android. So we had a friend of ours start working on the Android app, and I had to build the API for him, but I was having a really hard time doing that because I didn’t know what he needed exactly, so I built the first version of the web store over the weekend because I wanted to have a client to consume myself for the API I was building.

      MongoDB is a solid NoSQL store. Angular.js is being vetted as a potential front-end framework for the website (though it may ultimately not be used for the non-app site). Everything is running on node.js and hosted via an Express.js web server (though we are looking into Koa.js as it is the official successor to Express.js)

      Self taught : acquired knowledge or skill on one's own initiative. Unity and app compatible porposes : software development kit that enables developers to create applications for the Android platform.

      FULL STACK ( preferred if;at all possible! ). Any "NEW" project (all me) I am tasked with I try to sketch it out with MEAN in mind first and then will tweak or stray from the 'plan' when necessary

      The Android SDK is the key-component of all Android-based development and had to be included in this stack for sure. We work with the SDK through IntelliJ IDEA and the command-line.

      Spring-Boot allows us to create stand-alone web servers and helps us configure many of our dependencies with sane default, while maintaining flexibility where we need it.

      last time i used the android sdk was converting the tiktok app to ios. what a mess it was back then. the developer nature of the sdk was apparent vs apples offering.

      Probably the best application framework in Java, by far. Time-proven, mature.
