Prerequisites and Requirements

To get the most out of this course, you should have prior experience developing Android apps. If you lack this experience, please take Developing Android Apps prior to enrolling in this one. We also recommend taking Advanced Android App Development if you are interested in publishing your app to the Google Play Store.

To follow along with course activities, you must have access to the latest release of Android Studio, and should have access to an Android device for running and testing your apps.

We share code through Github, so you must be familiar with using Github to access code. Take our course on Using Git and Github if you lack this background.
