This course covers application development for Android devices.
The first day provides an introduction to object-oriented programming in Java, concentrating
on topics that are relevant to Android. During the following three days, a number of Android
applications are assembled. Theory is combined with practical exercises, deploying monitoring
and debugging the applications on real and virtual devices. By the end of the course, we expect
students to be able to build and deploy their own Android apps.

Absolutely excellent, fast-paced but that’s what I was hoping for. Good selection of topics.
Trainer was approachable and very knowledgeable. I appreciated the time and patience given to me as I was the slowest on the course.
I enjoyed the fast pace of the course. It’s given me the concepts which I now need to improve through practice.
Really enjoyable. Would recommend. Thanks
Fantastic introduction; so much information covered in one week.
It was highly intensive but easy to follow
Just wanted to say thanks for the course last week. I got a huge amount out of it. I really liked the way you built up the different components/apps over the week.
