Target Student:

This course is intended for a programmer or web developer who is new to mobile app development in Android. The student has experience developing web or desktop applications using object-oriented programming languages and tools, but may not have experience developing mobile applications.


To ensure your success, you should have experience developing applications using an object-oriented programming language such as Java, C++, C#, Visual Basic, and so forth. This course focuses on Android development rather than the Java programming language, so experience or prior coursework in Java is highly recommended.

Android Devices

This course has been designed around the use of emulated (rather than real) Android devices, focusing on an emulated Android Level 10 smartphone and an Android Level 17 tablet (both with Google APIs installed). You may also use your own Android phone and/or tablet for the course.
