  2. The concepts learnt through this course can be applied to any other app you plan to design using material design terminology.
  3. You will be able to make apps that use Navigation Drawer, Toolbar, Transitions, RecyclerView, Animations, Ripple Effects, Material Tabs, Vector Drawables, JSON Parsing, Volley library, JobScheduler API and several other fixes after completing this course.
  4. Learn how to validate your design with your code with thirdy party APIs and libraries discussed in the course

Once upon a time, my teacher asked me to write a program to check if the input is leap year. I went to my teacher and asked him "Sir, can you please explain why you wrote if(i%4==0)?". He told me to get lost saying "I ll never learn programming" 

Are you like me whose teacher writes code and never explains why? You have finally come to the right instructor on Udemy who teaches you now just how to code but also why

I have taught 100000+ people so far on my channel slidenerd which is rated as one of the topmost sources in the world to learn Android or IOS and other aspects of mobile development and general programming by several online blogs and forums. I have made several hundred videos on YouTube over the years and many of them are at the top of the search results on YouTube and Google.

I have real world teaching experience and a degree in IT Engineering. with more than 10 years of coding experience. I have won several coding challenges in the meantime. What do you say? we learn the how, what, why behind everything together?
