Learn, Plan, Develop, and Review

The content in this course will allow students to go from knowing nothing about programming to creating and publishing their own apps on the Google Play Store. Upon completion, students will also have created a portfolio with five marketable apps incorporating crucial aspects of Android development.  Aspects include social networking, data management, and design patterns. Many other courses help students to create a portfolio as well.  So how do we differ? For starters, we won’t just link you to other sources and say “read this documentation on your own.” If a topic is important and will be incorporated in our classes, we’ll walk you through it start to finish and provide support to ensure you understand the material. You can see the course sections laid out below.
