Google today debuted a new resource for learning to develop Android apps: a Udacity course called “Developing Android Apps: Android Fundamentals.” The online class is aimed at those who know programming but have no experience with building for Google’s mobile operating system.
Google Developer Advocates Reto Meier, Dan Galpin, and Katherine Kuan will give you step-by-step training for how to build an Android app, as well as best practices of mobile development in general and Android development in particular. They will also give you personalized ongoing feedback and guidance.
The full course materials (videos, quizzes, and forums) are available for free for all students by selecting “View Courseware” on Udacity. This is in addition to the resources Google already offers: documentation, samples, and videos. The guided course costs $150 per month after a two-week free trial.
