About this Course

This course will guide you through the process of productionizing an app, using Sunshine, the weather app we built in Developing Android Apps. Following Android's Core App Quality Guidelines, we'll identify the production criteria that still needs to be implemented, then tackle each problem until Sunshine is ready to publish on the Google Play Store. In the process, we'll introduce you to a host of tools and concepts, including: material design approaches, image-handling, performance profiling, and more!
