Brief overview of content only without mentorship, project reviews, certification
Learn the basics of Android and Java programming, and take the first step on your journey to becoming an Android developer!
This course is designed for students who are new to programming, and want to learn how to build Android apps. You don’t need any programming experience to take this course. If you’ve been using a smartphone to surf the web and chat with friends, then you’re our perfect target student!
Learning anything new can be tough. We will walk you through the process of making Android apps, but to get the most out of this course, you must bring your enthusiasm for learning, and budget time on your calendar to learn with us.
By the end of this course, you will have learned how to build an app’s layout and then practiced those skills by making a birthday card app.
If you’re curious about the road even farther ahead, these are the free courses that make up the Android Basics Nanodegree, in order:
If you are new to programming and don’t know where to start, then this is the course for you!
We will use Android Studio to build our apps, so you should have access to a computer that can run Android Studio in order to follow along (see Android Studio's System Requirements for details). Don’t worry, you do not need to install Android Studio in advance -- we will provide detailed installation instructions as part of the course.
Access to an Android device is helpful, but not at all required.
Now, in case you have some programming experience, parts of this course may be too slow for you — you should feel free to skip those sections.
Finally, the most important prerequisite is a willingness to learn new things, and belief that you can do this!
