The capstone project includes the evaluation of the competencies and performance tasks, which define an Associate Android Developer (Fundamental Application Components, Application User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX), Persistent Data Storage, Enhanced System Integration and Testing and Debugging).
You will demonstrate your understanding of the fundamental application components of programming for Android, how to build clean and compelling user interfaces, using view styles and theme attributes to apply a consistent look and feel across an entire application. Your app will connect with the internet sharing preferences and files, SQLite databases, content providers, libraries as ORM or Realm. You will design, plan, build and publish in the Google Play store your own Android Application.
This capstone project is part of the GalileoX Android Developer MicroMasters Program that is specifically designed to teach the critical skills needed to be successful in this exciting field. In order to qualify for the MicroMasters Credential you will need to earn a Verified Certificate in each of the four courses as well as this final capstone project.
You will complete the project in three "stages."
In the First stage, you will design and plan an application using a template that we provide; in this document you will design and prototype your mobile apps before writing any code.
For the Second stage you will build your app using your first stage document as a guide. This will involve choices such as how you will create a graphical user interface (GUI), how you will use intent filters and intent resolution to register activities, and what functionality to include in the app.
Third and last stage you will choose a monetization model and the process implementing Ads on mobile Platforms. (Google uses Admob as an advertising platform for mobile apps.)
