The basics and not only
It was a long but not difficult certification. The students can take a lot of information and not use or understand everything. The beginning is with basic input and it is going through adapter and contract patterns, json apis and parsers, data base and content creations. All of these are covered after that in the course "Developing Android Apps", with more analysis. It is a very step by step approach by applying 9 projects with great support from the community, mentors etc. I could not imagine how active an on-line community could be, at last I took part with a video leading a project!
The program is good for me to learn how to be a Android Developer. As the university student, I also learn some knowledge about programming with different language. This course give me more detail about the develop a real product (app) and tell me what should I pay attention in every detail of software development. The program has fulfill my expectation for learning how to be a Android Developer in basic.
