CommonsWare offers a week-long introductory course on Android app development, along with a series of intermediate and advanced seminars on Android app development topics. The introductory course is designed to make a team productive in Android app development, while the continuing education seminars help keep your existing Android team up to date on the latest advances in Android and expand their breadth of knowledge.
All of this builds on CommonsWare's wealth of expertise in Android and depth of experience in teaching people how to build Android apps. Not only has Mark Murphy personally trained over a thousand developers using these courses and seminars, but he has written the leading books on the subject and has helped most of the world's Android developers along the way.
The introductory course mixes hands-on training and lecture to deliver the core knowledge that Android app developers need to be successful in writing modern apps.
The hands-on course follows the first several tutorials from Exploring Android, showing your team how to set up an Android project, build a user interface, write tests, and more. Exploring Android continues from there, offering additional tutorials that attendees can explore if and when they choose.
The lecture material then picks up from the hands-on work, to cover the rest of the critical material on how Android apps get assembled, from working with files and databases to interacting with Web services. App security is a consistent theme throughout, as we explore how to write apps that are safe and secure.
At the end of the course, attendees will be ready to start building Android apps to meet your organization's needs.
CommonsWare offers several one-day seminars, on intermediate and advanced topics. This includes material on the latest-and-greatest features of the latest Android OS version, plus interesting items that arose from the most recent Google I|O conference.
Your training can have one or several of these seminars in a custom course, to cover just what you need, rather than be stuck with some agenda that wastes time on topics that do not interest you.
Mark Murphy has been an internationally-known leader in Android app development since 2008, with the debut of his book, The Busy Coder's Guide to Android Development. Since then, he has trained over 1,000 developers, spoken at dozens of conferences and smaller events, answered 20,000+ Stack Overflow answers, and has otherwise contributed to the Android development ecosystem.
