To kick off Android for Developers—our newest part-time course, we’re hosting two workshops on Android fundamentals.

Material Both workshops will cover the basics of Java and the Android SDK using Android Studio. Participants will get exposure to Android’s Model-View-Controller design pattern and the Java language through lecture and demonstration. Before time’s up, they’ll use the IDE to construct an API-backed Mad Libs generator app.

Participants Participants are expected to be proficient in an object-oriented programming language (such as Ruby, Python, or Objective-C) and will need to complete a 10-minute environment configuration prior to attendance. They’ll also need to bring their own laptops, preferably Macs.

About Android for Developers

The course is built from market demand and based on Google’s set of requirements for Android design and application. In 10 weeks, developers with at least one year of object-oriented programming experience will learn the design patterns, frameworks, and environments necessary to be proficient Android developers—and have something to show for it. Students will also build and deploy at least one app to the Google Play Store.

Why Android?

Demand for Android developers in the mobile marketplace is increasing fast as the market for Android apps grows. According to recent data from Cyber Coders, job postings for Android developers increased by 110% between 2012 to 2014. We’re so excited to start helping companies meet this demand—and to help great developers become great Android developers.
