We’ve known for a while now that Google, is smart.
It just got smarter. How? Google wants everybody to be able code, especially for its Android Platform. Not too long ago I discussed the options of Online courses and different providers (in case you missed it, you can read the post here). Well, Google just teamed with Udacity to launch a Android Basics Nanodegree, a course designed by Google. What makes this course stand out from the other Android Courses Google has offered in the past, is that, this course requires no basics in programming. All you need to have are the basic computer skills and the ability to work the Internet. The course requires 165 hours, to be completed and the first 50 students to complete the Android Basics Nanodegree will also be awarded with a full scholarship to continue the Career-Track Android Developer Nanodegree.
While the Nanodegree on Udacity is not free, the content that makes up the course is available for free online. Udacity charges for access to coaches, guidance, counselling and certification.
My weekend just got made. Who wants to challenge me in an App build-off?
