This course is part of the Android Basics Nanodegree by Google.

Learn the basics of Android and Java programming, and take the first step on your journey to becoming an Android developer!

This course is designed for students who are new to programming, and want to learn how to build Android apps. You don’t need any programming experience to take this course. If you’ve been using a smartphone to surf the web and chat with friends, then you’re our perfect target student!

Learning anything new can be tough. We will walk you through the process of making Android apps, but to get the most out of this course, you must bring your enthusiasm for learning, and budget time on your calendar to learn with us.

By the end of the course, you’ll build two simple (but powerful) apps that you can share with your friends. We also hope that you will learn enough through this course to decide how best to continue your journey as an Android app developer, if you're interesting in pursuing such a path.

Why Take This Course?
If you're a consumer of technology, this course will help you to become a *creator* of technology. You are only limited by your imagination!

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.

by Dimitrios completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
It includes concepts of Android Studio about the whole basic architecture of the project, such as styles, themes, resources, java functionality, more xml layout as in the first course. Very analytical step-by-step approach, without programming or challenge, makes the course an interesting experience.

Instructors are clear, easy to understand, and make the course fun. If you have previous programming experience the course will be a breeze.
