Use the skills you have learned in this course to build an app that you will feel proud to share with your friends and family.
You will need to know the very basics of Android programming (Java) to be successful in this course. If you are completely new to programming, you should take Android Development For Beginners before enrolling in this course.
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).
Access to an Android device is helpful, but not at all required.
Finally, the most important prerequisite is a willingness to learn new things, and belief that you can do this!
See the Technology Requirements for using Udacity.
Android powers over 80 percent of the world’s smartphones, and represents an incredible opportunity for developers everywhere. The next billion people coming online will interact with the internet for the very first time on a mobile device.
Building for Android gives you the best opportunity to reach these users and make an impact — both in your community, and on the world.
