Mark Murphy, founder of CommonsWare, writes a lot.
His most recent books have been focused on second-generation Android app development (Kotlin and the Android Jetpack):
Elements of Android Jetpack, a new introductory book on Android app development, focused on second-generation techniques (Kotlin and the AndroidX/Jetpack libraries). Version 0.5 is available, with 728 pages of second-generation app development material.
Elements of Android Q, to help you deal with the changes introduced by Android 10 (code-named "Q"), such as the changes in external storage access. The final version is available, comprising 96 pages.
Exploring Android, a series of step-by-step tutorials for building an Android app from scratch. This book is being rewritten to demonstrate using Kotlin and the Jetpack libraries. Version 0.9 is available, with 36 tutorials spanning 574 pages.
Elements of Kotlin, a guide to the Kotlin programming language, which is rapidly gaining in popularity for Android app development. Version 0.2 is available, comprising 342 pages.
Elements of Kotlin Coroutines, exploring Kotlin's new first-class reactive programming system. Version 0.1 is available, comprising 170 pages.
In the beginning, Android development was focused on Java and, partially, on the Android Support Library. Mark's earliest books share that focus:
The Busy Coder's Guide to Android Development, the first and largest book on Android app programming. It covers much of the Android SDK, through its 213 chapters spanning 4,292 pages.
Android's Architecture Components, a book focused on Google's Architecture Components set of libraries.
GraphQL and Android, focused on the GraphQL Web service dialect.
Things Other Than Books
He offers seminars and training on Android app development topics, from "starting from scratch" introductory material to advanced areas.
Heck, he even has a blog.
