What to look for in an Android service developer
Down to the fact that it can run on smartphones, tablets, and various other devices, Android has become the world’s most popular mobile operating system. As one can expect, this has created a lot of competition for the best Android developers. So the problem is not finding an Android developer, but finding the right one before anyone else does. So it pays to know what to look out for. That’s where DevSkiller comes in.
Firstly, a good Android developer will need to understand the basic components of the Android platform: Activity, Fragment, Service, Intent, BroadcastReceiver, ContentProvider. They will need to know the architecture of the platform, the processes launched during app startup, threads started, and the ways in which the application communicates with the system and other applications. An Android developer will also need to know the most popular libraries that support the creation of applications, Android Support Library, Google Play Services, Retrofit, OkHTTP, rxJava, EventBus, and Dagger.
You can tell an Android service developer’s experience based on the number of applications they have on Google Play and you can even check out for yourself what they look like, how they work, and how many downloads they have.
Your Android service developer will also have to implement easy architecture and design patterns which, when writing applications, allows for easy maintenance, extensions, and testing. Your developer should also be up to date with the latest trends in MVP and MVVM.
Your developer should possess the ability to create reusable custom views, understand the rules concerning the creation of efficient views and possess an ability to deal with the market fragmentation and the mechanisms Android offers to ensure smooth operation of applications across different devices with varying specifications.
Google, who develops the source code for Android, always names each Android version after some kind of confectionary, Cupcake, Donut etc, and you might also expect an Android Developer to be able to name these.

Frequently asked questions
How long does it take to set up DevSkiller?
DevSkiller Android Service tests are simple and easy to set up, meaning you can be testing Android developer applicants within 5 minutes. The database comes with an extensive library of predefined tests meaning the hard work is already done for you.
What do you do about plagiarism?
DevSkiller ensures test validity by implementing various anti-plagiarism procedures during each Android service online test. Anti-plagiarism tools are in place, such as screen recording, social listening, checking the candidate’s IP address, and using live pair notifications. An automatic plagiarism detector checks any code entered and the way each question was answered and then cross-references this against every answer in the system, meaning if there is a match it means the candidate cheated.
What is RealLifeTesting™?
The cornerstone of DevSkiller testing and what really sets us apart from ordinary algorithmic puzzles, is RealLifeTesting™. By implementing RealLifeTesting™ into our Android Service online tests we can present developers with a simulated test scenario that imitates the kinds of challenges they would likely encounter in their ordinary work. This means you can have a comprehensive understanding of how an applicant will perform within the job role, while still in the screening phase.
How are Android Service online tests evaluated?
One of the great benefits of DevSkiller Android service testing is that tests are evaluated automatically, saving on hours of time spent evaluating results. Once the candidate completes the test, results are compiled and an automatically generated report is presented, which is easy to understand even for non-technical professionals. Assessment is based on a number of factors including the number of errors in the code, the quality of the code, and how it works in edge cases, as well as if the solutions they gave would run.
