ABOUT THIS NANODEGREE
The Android Basics program has been created for those who are still new to mobile programming but want to develop their skills towards building Android apps. During the course, you will be guided through the process of creating an app from scratch.
You will learn everything about the Android user interface (and transform designs into layouts), user input, multi-screen applications (including adding audio and images to an app), and networking (HTTP networking, JSON parsing, and threads). By the end of the course, you should be able to know how to build an app’s layout.
The course takes around 3 months to complete. If you want to enroll, you should be comfortable with basic computer skills, navigate the Internet easily, and run programs. Bear in mind that you will use Android Studio during the course, so you should have access to a computer that can run the tool.
84 billion Android app installs in 2019 – this is how popular Android apps are!
