In this intermediate Android skills training, Ben Finkel shows learners how to develop an Android app with Java.
Android is the mobile-based operating system developed by Google, which runs on the vast majority of mobile devices in the world. Depending on who you ask, between 75 and 85 percent of mobile devices are running the Android operating system. There’s a clear benefit to learning to develop for the most popular mobile OS in the world. If that’s the path you intend to take, you not only need to learn the Android SDK, but also the language Android was written in — the Java programming language.
This course uses our virtual lab environment to give you real-world practice developing and deploying an Android app. You'll also have the opportunity to apply what you learned in our Java Essentials course.
For anyone who manages IT training, this software development training can be used to onboard new software developers, curated into individual or team training plans, or deployed as a software development reference resource.
