Hi, first of all I want to say hi to everyone since this is my first post :)

I have a samsung phone that runs jellybean 4.3. I have super user permissions and I am a new programmer. This is my first project and although I have good background in programming I have never done anything with android.

My project is I want to create a custom keyboard that runs Syriac letters. I am willing to do whatever it takes even if I have to start and create a custom keyboard from scratch. My problem is I have no idea where to start. If anyone can be so kind as to tell me what I need to do in point form, and it doesn't have to be specific or go into detail, it will be a great help! Thank you so much :)

you can start by following simple android development tutorials, with apps similar to yours,
if you want to learn about multilang options, or any thing else, there is a great reference at developer.android.com/training/basics/supporting-devices/languages.html
