About This Class

We provide the fastest way to learn how to code and start making industry standard apps. The best part? You don’t need any prior programming experience.


Learning to code is intimidating. There’s all that syntax, all those new words and unintuitive software to get your head around. It’s hard to know where to start.

Beginning App Development was lovingly crafted to be the fast track train that takes you to this new and exciting world.

Whether if you want a change of career or to make your first prototype App, this course is the perfect launch pad.

Don't take our word for it!

Feedback on our online course:

"Great videos, best learning videos I have seen." - Keef Garr

"I like the way you explain, easy to understand, make our life easier." - Rio Lim

We're not your average online tutor.

We at the London App Brewery have spent years training people with no programming experience how to code and make apps in our London classroom. Here we relaxed have small group lectures, one-to-one teaching and you even get beer at the end to reward your coding!

We've been running weekend crash courses for both Android and iOS Development for a long time, so we know all the questions you might have even before you can think of them. We've explained hard-to-understand programming concepts thousands of times, and we've figured out ways of explaining it to the visual, auditory and kinesthetic people. We've seen every variation of programming questions and we'll do our best to answer all of these in our course.

We want to teach the world to code but we don't have enough manpower to meet you all and teach you in person. So that's why we are starting this online course, where we hope to be your companion on your app making journey. But we are more Yoda, less R2D2.

Feedback for our physical course:

"Like a lot of people I have an idea for an app every other day. I was very impressed by Philipp and Angela’s ability to understand, explain and resolve every single problem I ran into. It’s comforting to know you’re in safe hands when trying something new and technical." - Michael Maiga, Entrepreneur.

"I had a great time on the London App Brewery course and it was revelatory to me that I could make so much progress in such a short amount of time. That’s entirely down to the teaching standards, which are top notch. Strongly recommended to anyone who wants to build an app or just understand how they work." - Aidan Russell, Accountant.

"The London App Brewery teaches you how to code and design apps by walking you through the most influential apps in the market. I started with zero Java knowledge and at the end, I found myself in “the zone” solving the “Challenge” (mock app development briefs). All my questions were answered and barriers to app development evaporated. This workshop will kick start you." - James Leung, Product Manager.

As a disclaimer, I have a degree in computer science. Therefore, my perspective on the course might differ from someone that is relatively new to software development. Following along with this class, I was able to successfully create and run an app on my Android phone. The instructor takes into account that their students might be using different operating systems on their computers. I am also glad that the instructor occasionally share possible solutions for roadblocks that students could encounter while setting up a project. However, I do have some concerns. At the time of this review, only one section of their six section video series is available on Skillshare. It appears that you have to pay for their full course to get more advanced lessons. I understand that the company releasing this video is a business that needs to turn a profit, but I thought that this could be helpful for prospective students to know. My other concern is that the resource zip file shared in the course comments section has a different file structure than what is used in the video series. Additionally, I had to modify the names of the files (within the zip file) in order for them to be compatible with Android Studio. This involved making sure that each file name contained only lowercase letters, numbers 0-9, and underscores. Overall, I'm glad to have taken the course. I've attempted to learn Android app development multiple times and usually ran into roadblocks with setting up Android Studio itself. The course went at what I consider to be an easily manageable pace.
Reallly helpful for beginners and even for people who have used Android Studio a little bit before!
really understandable
