Have you ever felt the urge to create, but weren’t sure where to start? Whether it’s a song, a book, a painting, or a technological innovation, chances are you’ve wanted to take an idea, and bring it to life at some point. Well, if you’ve dreamed of creating apps that make the world a better place, you’re in luck! In partnership with the online education service Udacity, Google has created a program called the Android Basics Nanodegree, and it can make this dream of yours a reality.
How the Nanodegree Program Works
The Android Basics Nanodegree program is comprised of various courses, and instructors who educate students in the art of building simple, user-friendly apps with Android Studio (the official tool for developing Android apps), and the popular programming language, Java.
If that sounds too complicated, don’t worry. The program is designed to cater to people who have little to no experience with complex technology, programming, or app development. You’ll be able to develop your skills from the ground up, and start making a difference in no time at all!
The program is primarily for people who want to use their skills to make a difference in society. For example, two users, named Charles Tommo and Arpy Vanyan, have already used their app-creating skills to raise awareness for malaria prevention, and the sometimes-blinding eye disorder, Retinopathy of Prematurity. If you receive the same education they did, there’s nothing stopping you from creating equally beneficial apps!
Your education doesn’t have to stop with the basics, either. Once you graduate from the Nanodegree program, you’ll also have the option to take the Career-Track Android Nanodegree program for intermediate developers, and from there, you can take the advanced program of the same name. With the knowledge you gain from all three courses, you’ll be well on your way to jump-starting a successful career as an app developer, if you so choose!
