5. Android SDK expertise

An Android developer also needs to be acquainted with the Android Software Development Kit (SDK) where SDKs are a nothing but a set of pre-packaged code. The SDKs are Java code modules which give the developers access to device functions such as camera, accelerometer, etc. Here, the developers must have basic knowledge of layouts and views, action bar, data storage, activities and their life cycle, adjustment of different screen sizes, etc. Along with this, the developer must be familiar with Android documentation.
