About Android Development
Thanks to its Open Source nature, Google’s Android operating system has penetrated every nook and cranny of the world. It’s the primary OS for thousands of smartphones and tablets combined! Android Developers are part of this growing story, earning instant recognition for their skills, wherever they go. This however, raises the question: How do developers avoid from sinking in a sea of talents, comprised of budding programmers? By certifying one’s competency and skills in Android Development, developers can gain a distinct edge in the market, starting with the internationally-renowned Android Certified Associate Developer (ACAD) course.
END USERS, NOT TECHNOLOGIES, SHAPE THE MARKET. GO MOBILE FIRST.
Android Certified Associate Developer (ACAD) Course
Our ACAD workshop is a hands-on guide to designing and building mobile applications using Google’s Android open source platform. The course explains what Android is, the Android SDK, all essential features, as well as the advanced capabilities and APIs such as background services and notifications. It also encourages participants to learn by building a real-life working application, which can serve as a basis for future Android projects. By the end of the course, each participant will have a complete functional Android application incorporating most of the key features of the platform.
All participants should know the fundamentals of object oriented programming using JAVA, and be familiar with basic Java SE 1.8++ (classes, control flow statements, instantiation, inheritance, initialization, assignment, method overloading & overriding, etc).
Upon completion of the Android Certified Associate Developer course, graduates will be able to:
- Build their own applications for Android mobile phones.
- Understand how Android applications work, Android application components, manifest, and Intent.
- Design Android applications with compelling user interfaces by using and creating their own layouts using external resources.
- Use Android Web APIs for accessing Web Services such as Twitter, etc., in background services.
- Take advantage of Android APIs for data storage and retrieval via user preferences, files and local databases.
