Course Description

There's no getting around it.

Android accounts for 81.7% of all smartphones sold, but not all come packed with the very latest Android Nougat.
That won't worry you because after completing this course, the apps you build will perform brilliantly on Android Nougat or any older Android operating system.
Now that's something most courses don't teach you!
So, you want to be an Android 7 Nougat programmer? Or you are interested in Android 8 Oreo?
Well, I'm Tim Buchalka, one of your instructors, and I've designed the Android 7 Nougat App and Android 8 Orea Masterclass just for you! Yes one, course covering both version!
Choosing a course that's perfect for you can be damn hard. You need Instructors:
Who are passionate about what they do.
Keep their courses continually updated.
And most important, provide outstanding support and follow up to your questions.
That's what I do. And that's the reason why I made it into the Top 10 List of Outstanding Instructors in the 2015 Udemy Instructor Awards.
Know that you're exactly in the right place to MASTER Android 7 Nougat app programming as well as Android 8 Oreo!
Yes, we are in the process right now of updating the entire course to Android Oreo now it has been released by Google!
In this course, you will discover the power of Android app development, and obtain the skills to dramatically increase your career prospects as a software developer. You'll also have a head start over other developers using obsolete tools and earlier versions of Android.
Android is continually being updated, so OLD versions of the operating systems will have features from the latest version. It's called AppCompat, which is a set of support libraries used to make apps developed with newer versions, work with older versions.
But it only works if the developer codes it a right way. It doesn't just happen by default. The way I teach you in this Masterclass course is the right way!
With my course, you get the best of both worlds. You're taught to write code for the latest version of Android Nougat with a strong focus on AppCompat. That way, the apps you build will also support older versions of Android.
Most Android courses just focus on teaching app development for the current Nougat version. What that means is you're only taught to make apps for the latest version of Android, and that alienates a huge user base.
With my course, that's not the case. Your skill level is maximized so your app reaches more users, which means more downloads, which means more money.
Starting is easy because no previous programming experience is needed. NONE! If you do have it, great. Or maybe you just want to brush up on your Android development skills, and that's fantastic too.
The course is presented using a combination of video, slides and diagrams, all designed to teach you everything you need to know.
This is what you'll learn in the course:
Develop apps for the very latest version of Android 7 Nougat that also work on older Android devices running older versions of the Android operating system.
Download, install and configure the necessary (free) software.
Create your first app.
Build a range of apps demonstrating key aspects of the Android framework.
Test your apps on emulators or a real Android phone or tablet.
You'll learn Java programming because Android app development requires knowledge of Java. Included are Java tutorial videos that will get you up to speed fast.
Ensure your apps work with current and older Android versions on phones and tablets.
Use Android studio 2.3, the newest version of Google's premier Android tool.
Learn how to use databases, web services, and even get your apps to speak!
Understand the all new Constraint layout, for "drag and drop" screen creation.
Use powerful libraries of code to play videos, download website data, manipulate images, and a whole lot more!
To reinforce what you've learnt during the course, there are numerous challenges designed to help you understand each concept being taught. You're also shown the solution to the challenge so you know you're always on the right track.
The course is continually updated and enhanced, and fully supports Android Nougat as it evolves. New content is added each week, guaranteeing what you're learning is relevant for you today and will never be obsolete.
With many courses, it's just set and forget. But not with mine! I've got a PROVEN track record of continually updating and adding new content. An example is my Java Masterclass course which now has 65 hours of content and counting, and benefited a whopping 80,000 students.
And if you have any doubts about the course, be blown away by the glowing reviews left by students on this page.
Your instructors are me and Jean-Paul Roberts. Between us we have a collective 60 years of commercial software development experience, meaning you're learning the right way to program to maximize your future development potential.
Here's what's important. There're a lot of people out there teaching Android Nougat who are not developers. We're developers with many years' experience with the Android platform, who also teach Android Nougat.
Importantly, our courses teach students the real-life skills needed to get those in-demand jobs or further your programming skills.
Take this course in confidence today knowing you have just found the BEST Android 7 Nougat/Android 8 Oreo course on Udemy! Don't delay. Every minute you're not learning Android 7 is a missed opportunity for that PERFECT high paying job.

In fact, Tim's courses are often purchased by students struggling to get through a colleges programming courses.
"I am learning a lot about Java very quickly. I wish my college courses worked this way, they drag the same amount of material out over months." - Thomas Neal

"I love this guy. I'm in school for java right now at a local college and I bought this course hoping it would help clarify the fuzzy areas of my coursework. There's no comparison. Every time I get lost in my text book, I watch a couple more of these videos and I'm right back on track. He explains everything so perfectly. It sinks right in." - Kristen Andreani

"Tim is a great instructor, I have more courses from him and all are great. This one really helped me with my understanding of Java from the very beginnings. In fa

Explains a lot of basics, but it needs to be updated. He also shares a lot of good practices tips, which can be useful .

The good: The course is very exhuastive and gives you tons of up to date knowledge, skills and tools. Tim seems to be a great programmer who knows exactly what he's doing and explains the material very well.In addition, Tim and his assistence who seems very knowledgble as well always answer questions.The bad: To be honest I found the apps created during the course a bit bland and boring.Also, sometimes the lectures are not focused enough and that's why the duration of the course is around 60 hours if I'm not mistaken. When you want to review a topic you leanred, it becomes a bit tedious.Overall excellent course, I think it's the best out there for Android development

What a giant of a course! Extremely thorough and very engaging. One certainly gets value for money on the sheer size, and Tim knows his stuff.

Thorough explanations of how to do things the right way instead of the easy way so bad practices won't come back to bite later.

The instructor is an excellent teacher, and goes in-depth without taking us out of our depth. I am learning features and reasons for things that other instructors in other courses just gloss over, but at a pace that is manageable. And the course seems to be error-free, so I'm not getting stuck partway through with an app that is not working which I don't know how to debug. As a result, I am learning a lot. Thank you!!

I was already familiar with Android programming and many of the discussed topics beforehand. But, I took this course with the intention to actually learn, why I am doing certain things in Android and if there are other and better ways to implement them, i.e., to deepen my knowledge and improve my skills in the Android development.Personally, I did benefit from this course but not that much as I was expecting, as I am already an advanced programmer.However, I would strongly recommend this course to beginners as the teacher starts from scratch and explains every step he is doing in great detail, such that you can easily follow. Imo, some basic Java knowledge would be benefical -> take his Java course first (which I did not but I recommend it ;-))Although some videos target older Android versions (Oreo, Nougat and before), the content is not outdated and not much has changed over the years in the development. Except, some functions in Android Studio were renamed, changed, or removed as they try to improve it constantly.So, please do a quick Google research first and don't blame the teacher!Thanks!

Instructor knows what he is doing, but does go off on tangents. I was surprised that the class doesn't finish the last final project. Overall, I recommend this to anyone wanting to learn Android, but I suggest you go take Tim's Java class first.

Some times he talks too much, other times it's confusing.

Very good job of explaining what is being done and why. Thorough treatment of complex issues step-by-step. Just what I need.

It's Really a Great Course

After getting halfway through the course, I have learnt so much already. They is so much documentation and resources available that Tim has provided links for, and this really enhances the learning experience.

this is amazing course. before i did it, i studied at udacity android developer nanodegree course and i couldn't understand anything and then gave up. nowi found this course, tim explains everything the best way.
