Description

Most Android apps need to save data persistently. Data saved can be the user settings, file based, and can be in a structured form. To save a large amount of structured data persistently, we need a database system. In this course, Android Realm Fundamentals, you'll discover Realm, an object-oriented database system that stores data in an object tree and performs queries at a very high speed. The database remains private to your own application, and by default cannot be accessed from outside the application. First, you'll learn the basic fundamentals of Realm and how to integrate it into your own project. Next, you'll dive further into Realm by exploring how to write queries, perform sync and async transactions, and how to implement Realm into use for creating a professional app. Finally, you'll learn miscellaneous concepts such as, Realm notifications, custom Realm configurations, database migration, and upgrading Realm schema. By the end of this course, you'll have a strong foundation and understanding of the Realm Database System in Android.

Hi, this is Sriyank Siddhartha and I welcome you all to my new course of Android Realm Fundamentals. I am an app developer by profession and love to share knowledge in the best possible ways through my online video courses. In recent days, I have published several courses related to Android persistent Storage options such as SharedPreferences and File System. Now its time to explore the database system of Realm in android. To save a large amount of structured data persistently, we need a database system. Realm is one of its kind similar to the SQLite though it has nothing to do with SQLite and data is saved persistently in the object tree. And trust me Realm is gradually getting more popular than SQLite because of several reasons one of which is you do not have to write any SQL queries in case of Realm like we do in case of SQLite.

This course starts with basics and fundamentals of Realm and covers all the concepts such as:

  • Integrating Realm in your project
  • Insert, Query, Delete & Update
  • RecyclerView with Realm
  • Upgrading Schema & Applying Migration
  • Miscellaneous concepts of Realm
We'll explore each and every topic in detail by creating a demo application as well.

Prerequisites:
  • So no significant prior knowledge of Android Storage system is required to get started with this course.
  • So by the end of this course you'll have a very strong foundation of Realm Database System in Android.
  • So come join me, and lets together explore the Realm in Android only at pluralsight.
