COURSE DESCRIPTION

ZeedUp instructs how to build and deploy applications for Android phones and tablets using the Java programming language.. Since Java is the primary language of the Android platform, the course starts by refreshing the advanced features of the Java programming language. The course then covers the building blocks of Android in detail, and shows how to design & develop applications using these building blocks.

Android applications are written in Java, so at least moderate previous Java experience is needed. You need not be a Java expert, but you should be comfortable with basic syntax (loops, conditionals, Strings, etc.), OOP (classes, methods, constructors, interfaces, etc.), basic data structures (arrays, Lists, Maps, etc.), and how to go about creating and debugging basic Java programs.
