About This Class

Have you ever thought, "I can't program" ?

I once thought that but I tried making Android Apps anyway. Turns out it was pretty easy and after a few months I became self employed as an App Developer, ramping up my earnings to the tune of $120,000 per year. 

Would that amount of money change your life?

Well this Android course is where it starts, but only if you click the ENROLL button. Give it a try, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

Very thorough, end-to-end explanation on how to create and publish an Android app. More of a refresher class for me, but I still learned some new things. Easy to follow. Even though the Android Studio IDE has changed a bit since this class was published, it's still pretty much the same and everything is still relevant.

Clear, concise, to the point. Anyone wanting to learn about android app production should take this class! 5 thumbs up high!

Clear and straight to the point. Filled with tips. A great class for a beginner because it shows you the steps from the ground to the publishing part.

My very first software program was the artificial intelligence brain of an underwater robot in the early 2000's, still the coolest project I have ever worked on!

Since then I have designed and built websites, software and apps using all manner of languages and frameworks. Javascript, Bootstrap, .Net, Python, PHP - you name it, I've probably used it.

These days I focus on building quality cross platform apps using Xamarin studio in C#, Xcode and Swift 2 and Android Studio.
