Kotlin will overtake Java for Android app development. Improve career options with Android Studio. Create your own app

In this course, you will discover the power of Android app development, and obtain the skills to dramatically increase your career prospects as a software developer. You’ll also have a head start over other developers using obsolete tools and earlier versions of Android.

Android is continually being updated, so OLD versions of the operating systems will have features from the latest version. It’s called AppCompat, which is a set of support libraries used to make apps developed with newer versions, work with older versions.

But it only works if the developer codes it a right way. It doesn’t just happen by default. The way I teach you in this Masterclass course is the right way!

With my course, you get the best of both worlds. You’re taught to write code for the latest version of Android Oreo with a strong focus on AppCompat. That way, the apps you build will also support older versions of Android.

Most Android courses just focus on teaching app development for the current Oreo version (or if you are lucky, the previous version Nougat). What that means is you’re only taught to make apps for the latest version of Android, and that alienates a huge user base.

With my course, that’s not the case. Your skill level is maximized so your app reaches more users, which means more downloads, which means more money.

Starting is easy because no previous programming experience is needed. NONE! If you do have it, great. Or maybe you just want to brush up on your Android development skills, and that’s fantastic too.

The course is presented using a combination of video, slides and diagrams, all designed to teach you everything you need to know.

This is what you’ll learn in the course:

  • Develop apps for the very latest version of Android 8 Oreo that also work on older Android devices running older versions of the Android operating system.
  • Download, install and configure the necessary (free) software.
  • Create your first app.
  • Build a range of apps demonstrating key aspects of the Android framework.
  • Test your apps on emulators or a real Android phone or tablet.
  • You’ll learn Kotlin programming because Google have just recently added support for Kotlin to Android app development. Included are Kotlin tutorial videos that will get you up to speed fast.
  • Ensure your apps work with current and older Android versions on phones and tablets.
  • Use Android studio 3, the newest version of Google’s premier Android tool.
  • Learn how to use databases, web services, and even get your apps to speak!
  • Understand the all new Constraint layout, for “drag and drop” screen creation.
  • Use powerful libraries of code to play videos, download website data, manipulate images, and a whole lot more!
