Google wants to teach you how to develop for mobile
Google has partnered with online educational organization Udacity to create a course, dubbed "Developing Android Apps: Android Fundamentals". It is intended for developers new to Android, or to mobile in general, but NOT new to programming. Sorry folks, there will be no hand holding in this program.

The good news is that all the course materials are available for free, whereas students, who choose to pay, will also get feedback and guidance from coaches. Participants will get to follow a step-by-step training in building an Android app and Google promises to relay the best practices in mobile development.

The course's authors recommend that their students also check out the "UX Design for Mobile Developers" and "Mobile Web Development" courses, also hosted on Udacity, as the knowledge laid out there accompanies "Developing Android Apps: Android Fundamentals" perfectly to deliver a solid know-how in the field.

Sorry dude!
I'm an African and I think it is very good and profitable to me and my friends. I'm enrolling with a second thought.
No offence meant, just speak for yourself.

Neat it is like what MS has been doing for years. Will have to certainly take a look at it in the coming weeks.

Udacity sucks. All they are is a data mining people-seller company. No wonder Google went with them.
