Buttons and Linear Layouts: Practical Android Development Part 5

In this tutorial we'll add a button to our basic app, using the "linear layout" viewgroup to arrange our components. The button won't do anything just yet though -- we'll leave that for the next tutorial. LinearLayout is a very simple but powerful (especially when nested) layout manager that allows you to layout your components horizontally or vertically.

I'll be releasing a handful of free videos from the complete course - enough to get you started - and you can find the complete course right here.
