Source: New! Learn How to Build Android Apps with Android Jetpack and Kotlin from Android Developer
Posted by Dan Galpin
Developing Android Apps with Kotlin, developed by Google together with Udacity, is our newly-released, free, self-paced online course. You’ll learn how to build Android apps using industry-standard tools and libraries in the Kotlin programming language.
Android development fundamentals are taught in the context of an architecture that provides the scaffolding for robust, maintainable applications. The course covers why and how to use Android Jetpack components such as Room for databases, Work Manager for background processing, the Navigation component, and more. You’ll use popular community libraries to simplify common tasks such as Glide for image loading, Retrofit for networking, and Moshi for JSON parsing. The course teaches key Kotlin features such as coroutines to help you write your app code more quickly and concisely.
As you work through the course, you’ll build fun and interesting apps, such as a Mars photo gallery, a trivia game, a sleep tracker and much more.
This course is intended for people who have programming experience and are comfortable with Kotlin basics. If you’re new to the Kotlin language, we recommend taking the Udacity Kotlin Bootcamp course first.
The course is available free, online at Udacity; take it in your own time at your own pace.
