This video is the starting of Retrofit Android Tutorial.
What is Retrofit? ------------------ Retrofit is a type-safe HTTP client for Android and Java. You can make network requests using Retrofit and it is used in android to call RESTful APIs.
Why Retrofit? -------------- Though it is not necessary that you use a library like Retrofit for the network calls in your application. But if you will not use a library you have to take care of a lot of things, and it increases the task and amount of code. Whereas Retrofit has predefined methods to quickly perform network requests. We also have other libraries in android for example volley, but if you are still using Volley for network operations then it is highly recommended that you should migrate to retrofit now. Retrofit is better than volley.
In this Retrofit Android Tutorial series we will learn a lot of things. We will learn - Building RESTful API using SLIM framework - Making the calls from our android app using Retrofit - We will also learn deploying the REST API
This video is just an introduction about Retofit Android Tutorial, and yes you can directly jummp from this video, but I would recommend to watch it.
From the next video we will directly start the series, and not only retrofit we will learn a lot of thing, as the above 3 title contains a lot of subtitles.
Meanwhile if you think this series will help you please SHARE it with your friends learning Android Development.
