Do you want to build applications for the most popular operating system in the world?
Do you want the opportunity to put your apps on over 1 billion devices?
"Become An Android Developer From Scratch” is designed to be the best first step to launching your career as an Android Developer. Whether you've never programmed before or are coming to mobile development for the first time, if you're truly inspired to learn Android Development, this is where you need to start.
This course has been in development for over two years, continuously perfected through research and testing in training bootcamps throughout the US. It represents a collaboration between a professional educator with over 20 years of experience in helping people learn and a professional mobile developer who has helped companies like Sony, Verizon, and nVidia build stunning mobile applications.
Starting with how the Java programming language works and progressing all the way to advanced Android concepts, you will get expertly produced instruction, visually descriptive explanations of deep concepts, screencasts that talk you through not just the “how” but also the “why,” and code challenges to test yourself and mark your progress.
Here’s what students are saying:
“Very clean and well done. Covers everything that you need to know for getting started whether you know how to code starting out or not. If you are at a loss trying to start making android apps this is the course for you.”
“I like this course, this would transform any normal person to a full fledged android developer.”
“This one is, by far, the most comprehensive, easy-to-follow, and genuinely well put together one of the bunch.”
“Inspirational! - got me over the hump (complete android beginner)”
Why it’s working...
One of the things we're most excited to offer with this course is access to the inner workings of the mind of a professional mobile developer. Throughout the course you will be able to listen in as our Learning Scientist teases apart all the thoughts that run through a professional mobile developer’s mind as he’s writing the code you will learn to create. It’s like sitting down in a movie with the writer, director, and lead actor. But in this case, it’s all in support of your transformation from novice to professional.
You will build several applications throughout the course, and the starting point for each project (as well as solutions to each challenge) will be available for download. You will also get all the visuals and info-graphics used throughout the course for reference and study.
"Become An Android Developer From Scratch" will give you a new, richer perspective on how mobile devices work. After you’ve completed this rigorous, challenging, and super fun course, you will be able to create your own apps, deploy to the Google Play store, and even interview for a job anywhere in the world.
The real value...
The most important thing you will get from completing this course is the confidence to say “I’m an Android Developer!” You’ll be able to interact with other students and professionals in the Android community with pride and self-assuredness. You’ll also become an independent learner, able to discern where to go for information and how to continue advancing your skills.
No course is going to make you into an expert. It’s up to you to challenge yourself and find your path to making the apps you dream about. Become an Android Developer from Scratch is the best place to begin. Are you ready to get started?

Students: 146088, Price: Free
** ONLY FREE ANDROID COURSE WITH 8+ HOURS OF CONTENT **
There goes a chinese proverb - "Tell me, I'll forget. Show me, I'll remember. Involve me, I'll understand."
The highest degree of learning takes place with your involvement. And this course is designed to do exactly that. This course introduces you to the basics of Android development. You will need some Java fundamentals to get started. If you are not sure about the difference between an abstract class and an interface you might have to refresh your Java concepts before proceeding.
Also, if you are new to Java I recommend John Purcell's Java Course, in order to acquire the minimal Java programming skills required to step into Android development.
I've also got you some companion code which you can download from the appropriate lectures. You'll be working on the source code along with me, so that you could get a good grasp on the concepts you will eventually be introduced to. At the end of this course you'll be able to write and deploy AWESOME!! apps to Google Play.
How is this course designed?
- Comprehensive - Contains lessons and exercises that enable you to develop real-world Android applications.
- Simple & Sequential - To keep complexity at bay, the course introduces you to independent concepts initially and then reveals more of the complex stuff.
- Focused towards Results - This is the same course that we use internally at our mobile app startup, to train new talents.
- Hands-on Sessions - I guide you through sessions building apps and writing code snippets clearly explaining every line of code.
- Drills - Easy-to-moderate beginner level exercises in which you get the opportunity to practice what you've learnt and verify the same.
- Elaborate Videos - Learn Android concepts in a thorough manner, I've made sure that all WHYs and HOWs you need to know are covered.
Since this course is for beginners, I highly recommend you to take this course sequentially. You can pick on random videos, but remember - the complexity increases down the road so it is imperative that you take them one by one.
What makes me qualified?
- Started out as an indie Android developer in 2009 and have programmed for Android since the Cupcake days (Android 1.5).
- Developed more than 100 Android apps till date, including games and other apps that use the Android NDK.
- Contributed open-source libraries for Android that improve developer productivity, notable ones are Android Saripaar, Simple Section Adapter, and Instant Adapter.
- Bootstrapped a startup and currently have 9 developers working on Android and iOS.
- Training people since 2005 ;)

Xamarin Forms for Android and iOS Native Development
Build your First Entirely Native Mobile Apps for Android and iOS using Xamarin Forms, C#, and XAML. Then include SQLite!
Created by Eduardo Rosas - Xamarin-Certified Mobile Developer, Software Engineer
Students: 22414, Price: Free
A few years ago I wanted to start developing mobile apps, back then for some reason for the Windows Phone 7 OS, and I just didn't understand what I was finding on Google, too advanced for a newbie like me. I felt overwhelmed, even though I had some (very light) programming experience, this seemed too complicated, maybe that was why it was one of the latest subjects in college (and I was just starting out).
And then I heard about this event that Nokia was having for developers, two full days of learning to build Windows Phone 7 and S40 apps, and we would start with Windows Phone. So my mom, with I'm sure a few efforts, gave me just enough money for one day, to travel to the big city, get to the event, have something to eat, and return home. So I skipped school that day, and went to the event, and luckily that day it would be about Windows Phone 7, and I say luckily because a few minutes by the instructor that day completely changed my life, and I mean this in every sense of the word.
In literally just about 30 minutes, this guy perfectly explained how to build Windows Phone 7 apps, and a world of opportunities opened for me, I would go ahead and build dozens of apps for WP7, WP8, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 thanks to that quick lecture
The reason I'm writing about this story, is because I want you to have the same opportunity that I did back then, so you too can start building apps, and with no need from your loving parents to sacrifice some of the money they may very well lack, this course is entirely free. Hoping that this course does to your professional career what those 30 minutes did for mine all those years ago.
If you are a complete beginner on app development, I made this course with you in mind, so after just a few minutes you unlock a world of posibilites with the apps that you can build.
And even better, Xamarin Forms unlocks more doors now by itself than Windows Phone 7 did back then. Xamarin Forms allows you to build NATIVE both Android and iOS apps reusing one code base.
So, if you are a complete beginner, take this course, and at the end, you will know how to:
Build iOS apps and
Build Android apps
By 100% reusing C# and XAML code!
Add SQLite local databases to your apps
Jumpstart your mobile app development career, don't wait for the University to teach you in the last semesters, act now and start building iOS and Android apps today.
