Android Apps – Native Phone and Tablet Development
This is the first course in the Android Development series.
With the backing of Google, Verizon and other companies, the Android platform has taken the mobile market by storm. One of the big reasons is portability: you can build apps that will work across several devices.
One of the most important factors in mobile app development is setting up the development environment. This can be a difficult and time consuming process. This course will teach you techniques to shorten this process, giving you a jumpstart to developing, delivering and testing mobile apps.
This is a great hands-on start up course for anyone who wants to be an Android developer.
Take this course individually, or as part of the Mobile App Development Certificate.

Excellent program where the trainers were well prepared.
I found this class very useful. It was exactly what I was looking for. It is great for programmers who are planning to “jump into” mobile development.
