by Dimitrios audited this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
Poor introduction of the android front end development. The student learns only how to write 3 layout xml elements which are integrated for the design of the phone screen. It takes officially 2 weeks, but it would rather take 2 days! I think, it could be better to concatenate it with the next Android Basics: User Input.
