It’s been a little over two weeks since we launched the Android Basics Nanodegree by Google program, and what an incredible two weeks it’s been! We knew going in we had an incredible team in place, who together built the program from the ground up. Now, we can happily say we have an incredible student body in place as well. We have been literally staggered by the passion, dedication, and dynamism we’ve witnessed, and the quality of work being submitted is so impressive. Best of all, the community is growing and bonding together, as students connect in forums, on Slack, and more.
Ask the Android Experts!
On the subject of connections, we’ve got a great new event to tell you about! It’s a special opportunity to connect directly with the experts from Google and Udacity who built the Android Basics program, and it will be your chance to ask any questions you might have about the Android Basics Nanodegree by Google.
How it works
Here’s how it works. When you’ve gotten your questions together, just click here, and you’ll be taken to an online form where you can submit. This form will be live until July 26th. Our experts will pore over all the submissions, and then tackle them in a panel discussion moderated by Shanea King-Roberson. Shanea is a Developer Relations Program Manager at Google, and she is also our Program Manager for the Android Basics program. On the panel we’ll have Katherine Kuan from Google, and Chris Lei from Udacity. Katherine Kuan is a Developer Advocate at Google, and she and Chris are the Curriculum Directors for the Android Basics program.
In short, this is your chance to ask anything you want about Android Basics, and get an answer from the experts who built the program, who designed the curriculum, and who teach the courses!
We’ll film the panel discussion, and it will be published on August 2nd, forever after to be a resource for anyone interested in pursuing a career in Android Development, or who just wants to see the app in their head become the app in their hand!
Who it’s for
This event is especially recommended for beginning programmers, or those new to the Android platform. When you’re just starting out, or in unfamiliar territory, it’s natural to have a lot of questions, and this will be a great opportunity to pose them to the right people—experts who are deeply experienced with Android, but whose mission is specifically to work with new and aspiring Android programmers.
This event is also recommended regardless of whether you’re pursuing a career in Android development. A key reason why we launched Android Basics by Google in the first place was to ensure we could offer an end-to-end education—from total beginner, to career-track developer. Now, with Android Basics and Android Developer, we’re able to provide the full spectrum for our students!
