Udacity is a partner of Android and Google in putting out online classes for developing Android apps. They are one of the more popular providers of good app development courses, and they just recently updated their core “Developing Android Apps” course to make sure participants in this class include the very latest that Android has to offer.

In terms of course elements, the Developing Android Apps course now includes the latest changes and additions to Android and Android Studio, which includes the new Constraint Layout editor, and the Firebase Job Dispatcher. Experts guide students through online videos and app creation, now featuring Android 7.0 Nougat, but they will also learn how to keep apps backwards compatible for older versions.


In terms of structure Udacity and Google responded to feedback regarding this course – most people mainly saying that “some of the lessons were a little difficult to get through.” To help with this, the course now added smaller apps that students can build as they go through the course. Of course, the best part of this is that you can go through the course at your own pace and time.


At the end of the course, you can choose to be certified by going through the Associate Android Developer certification exam. That’s a nice certificate to show your credentials for your next app development job.
