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?

Python AI and Machine Learning for Production & Development

Learn AI & ML using demos

When you want to learn a new technology for professional use, there are two mutually exclusive options, either you learn it yourself or you go for instructor based training.

Self learning is least expensive but lot of time results in wasting time in finding right contents, setting up the environment , troubleshooting issues and may make you give up in the middle.

Instructor based training can be expensive at times and need your time commitment.

This course combines the best of both these options. The course is based on one of the most famous books in the field "Python Machine Learning (2nd Ed.)" by Sebastian Raschka and Vahid Mirjalili and provides you video tutorials on how to understand the AI/ML concepts from the books by providing out of box virtual machine with demo examples for each chapter in the book and complete preinstalled setup to execute the code.

You learn the concepts by self learning and get hands on executing the sample code in the virtual machine.

The demo covers following concepts:

  1. Machine Learning - Giving Computers the Ability to Learn from Data

  2. Training Machine Learning Algorithms for Classification

  3. A Tour of Machine Learning Classifiers Using Scikit-Learn

  4. Building Good Training Sets – Data Pre-Processing

  5. Compressing Data via Dimensionality Reduction

  6. Learning Best Practices for Model Evaluation & Hyperparameter Optimization

  7. Combining Different Models for Ensemble Learning

  8. Applying Machine Learning to Sentiment Analysis

  9. Embedding a Machine Learning Model into a Web Application

  10. Predicting Continuous Target Variables with Regression Analysis

  11. Working with Unlabeled Data – Clustering Analysis

  12. Implementing a Multi-layer Artificial Neural Network from Scratch

  13. Parallelizing Neural Network Training with TensorFlow

  14. Going Deeper: The Mechanics of TensorFlow

  15. Classifying Images with Deep Convolutional Neural Networks

  16. Modeling Sequential Data Using Recurrent Neural Networks

In addition to the preinstalled setup and demos, the VM also comes with:

  1. Jupyter notebook for web based interactive development

  2. JupyterHub for multiuser notebook environment to allow multiple users to simultaneously do development

  3. Remote desktop

  4. Visual studio code IDE

  5. Fish Shell

The VM is available on :

  1. Google Cloud Platform

  2. AWS

  3. Microsoft Azure

A very warm welcome to "Science for Community Learning and Development Workers".  We hope this course ignites (or reignites!) your passion for science.  By the end of this course we hope you will have some fresh ideas on how to engage with your learners on a range of scientific topics. 

You will be provided with detailed instructions on how to carry out scientific demonstrations and some ideas on how to adapt and extend these demonstrations to suit your learners.  While watching the demonstrations you will learn how to encourage scientific thinking and enhance your learners observation and critical thinking skills. 

This course contains 6 exclusive videos designed specifically for this course.  These videos will explain the scientific principles behind the demonstrations so you, as a practioner, have the background knowledge you need to help your learners engage with topics they may previously have felt were "not for them".

This course is fully aligned with the CLD Standards Council's Competencies.  In particular you will be supported to manage and organise resources, you will be provided with feedback forms tailored to the STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) activities to help you manage and monitor programs and activites (E2), you will be provided with risk assessments that you can adapt to suit your own organisation (E7).  You will also be asked to reflect on barriers to participation in STEM (C3) and be provided with a series of STEM worksheets that you can use with your learners to take advantage of learning activities in everyday life (C5).

Finally we will provide you with links to further information and organisations who can help you deliver STEM in a CLD context.  We would be delighted to welcome you onto the course and support you as you explore the wide range of science resources available to promote scientific thinking in your community. #unlockingstemincldpractice
