  • Dimitrios Tosidis completed this course, spending 8 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    It is a great introduction to the intents, adapter pattern and the intent tabs. You can learn, how to switch fragments and make generic object types. You can play also with audio, pictures and resources. A great experience for someone, who wants to see an architecture.
