In just 2-3 hours of lectures and exercises, this course takes your Android Studio skills to new heights. Instead of trying to jam the hundreds of shortcuts that Android Studio provides into your brain, it focuses on skills that really matter.
It's not about how many shortcuts you know. It's about how fluently and effortlessly you can edit your code.
It doesn't matter if you use Android Studio to develop in Java, Kotlin, Jetpack Compose, Flutter, pure Dart, or — I don't know — Haskell. All the shortcuts covered are usable in all languages supported by Android Studio. In fact, they also work in other IntelliJ IDEs, such as IntelliJ IDEA, PyCharm, WebStorm, PhpStorm, Rider, CLion, RubyMine, AppCode, or GoLand.
If you're not satisfied with the course, you can simply ask for a refund within 30 days.
