Course description
  • Android Basics: User Input
  • 4 weeks
  • Learning anything new can be tough. We will walk you through the process of making Android apps, but to get the most out of this course, you must bring your enthusiasm for learning, and budget time on your calendar to learn with us.
  • By the end of this course, you will have learned how to make your app interactive using buttons and changing text. You will have practiced those skills by making a basketball scores app, and you will have built a full coffee-ordering app.
  • If you’re curious about the road even farther ahead, these are the free courses that make up the Android Basics Nanodegree, in order:
  • Making an App Interactive
  • Work with the Android Framework and Control Flow
  • Harness the power of Java to create an interactive coffee ordering app!
  • Start by writing simple Java code statements that add interactivity to your app.
  • Use a fundamental concept in programming, a variable, to keep track of all the coffee drinks ordered.
  • Take a deeper dive into the Android Framework and build the Just Java coffee ordering app!
  • See in more detail how Android works behind the scenes and take your first steps towards learning Object Oriented Programming.
  • Add the ability to add toppings to your coffee, and show a detailed order summary when the customer purchases a coffee.
  • If you have learned the basics of Android layouts and XML, then this is the course for you!
  • We will use Android Studio to build our apps, so you should have access to a computer that can run Android Studio in order to follow along (see Android Studio’s System Requirements for details). Don’t worry, you do not need to install Android Studio in advance — we will provide detailed installation instructions as part of the course.
  • Access to an Android device is helpful, but not at all required.
  • Now, in case you have some programming experience, parts of this course may be too slow for you — you should feel free to skip those sections.
  • Finally, the most important prerequisite is a willingness to learn new things, and belief that you can do this!
  • See the Technology Requirements for using Udacity.
  • If you’re a consumer of technology, this course will help you to become a creator of technology. You are only limited by your imagination!
  • Android powers over 80 percent of the world’s smartphones, and represents an incredible opportunity for developers everywhere. The next billion people coming online will interact with the internet for the very first time on a mobile device. Building for Android gives you the best opportunity to reach these users and make an impact — both in your community, and on the world.
