There are more than a billion Android users in the world right now, which means that functional apps are in high demand. Everything from banking, finding the right city bus, and killing time with a phone-based game is dependent on the skills of an Android app developer who knows Java code inside-out. This Android Developer Nanodegree takes you beyond the basics of app development through six modules and accompanying projects. Your first project is to create an app that lets movie goers find the most recent and popular movies by first building a clean UI and syncing it to a server, and then adding a tablet layout. Progress through the course with advanced Android app development and using Java, Gradle, and Android wearables.
Culminate your learning experience by developing your own app of your choosing. You'll develop a detailed plan with UI mockups and then build your app from scratch. This course gives you a hefty portfolio to present to potential employers, add to your existing firm, or build your own entreprenuerial ventures as an Android app developer.
