After this course you will be able to do your own Android application development to publish application on the Google Android market or on your custom Android embedded board.

We look at the Android Architecture. Through theory and exercises we cover all major parts of the API and run applications with interface and in background. In an interactive manner, you will be able to get direct feedback.
