My Udemy Courses have been taken by over 6,000 people in 135 countries. They have also received high ratings throughout Udemy.
Android devices are used worldwide and over 1.15 billion Android Devices are predicted to ship this year. Did you know that's more than apple?
Making Android Apps has sort of always been thought of as some magical process that only programmers can do. It was never thought possible that anybody would be able to make Android Apps.
I'm here to tell you that it is possible! Plus, you never have to write a single line of code! In this course I teach you how to use a tool called App Inventor 2 to make Android Apps using an easy mouse-driven drag and drop block system to make your app work. You build the user interface visually,and then just click the blocks together using the mouse to make it work.
I know you might be thinking that apps you can make are limited, right? In all honesty, most any kind of app can be made using App Inventor 2, and they are updating it quite often.
App Inventor 2 is also free to use. It's run by MIT and you use your Google Account. Easy!
In this course I teach you, in over 5 hours of video instruction, how to leverage the power of App Inventor 2 to make Android Apps easily and without coding. It's set at a pace that starts out at a beginner level and works it's way up to a more advanced level to include making 2 games.

What is the target audience?
In this video you will learn how to install the necessary software to run App Inventor 2 on your computer. App Inventor 2 will work with both Mac and Windows. You can also use it with some versions of Linux.
This video guides you on how to get to the App Inventor 2 site and then how to login into the site using your Google Account. You must have a Google Account to use App Inventor 2, so if you do not have one, I would suggest you create one before moving forward.
In this video you start learning how to make your first app. This video teaches you how to build the user interface portion of the app. You will learn how to add buttons, labels, and do some neat things with colors. It will also teach you how to make another part of the app react to when you touch a button.
In this video you learn how to make the user interface actually work. The first video focuses on designing the user interface, and this video focus on using the blocks editor and getting the app to actually do something.
We move right along to making our 2nd app. In this app you learn how to do things like add text to speech and actually make the phone talk. Not to mention if you are a Batman fan, this is a must see!
In this video, I teach you how to get your Batman calling app to work. You use text to speech and some other features in your phone to make it work so that when you push the button, it says what you want it to say.
In this video I teach you how to setup the user interface we are going to use to build our mini web browser in this lesson. It teaches you how to setup buttons, a text box, and a web viewer.
In this video we go into the blocks editor and put everything together to make our web browser work. We have the buttons setup that load their specific pages, and we have it setup to load which ever page we type into the text box.
In this video we setup the main screen for our GPS App. You learn how to add to non-visible components to this app. You learn how to add both the texting component and the location sensor component.
In this video I teach you how to go into the blocks editor and setup the location sensor to get the current address and then text it to a predefined phone number.
This is going to test what you learned in the last few lessons.
In this video we start setting up our paint app. I teach you how to add background colors to buttons and how to add a canvas to the screen.
In this video I walk you through putting the blocks together to make a simple paint app that allows you to change the color that you want to use and allows you to use your finger to free hand draw on the canvas.
In this video I walk you through adding more color options to the paint app and a clear button, that when pressed, clears the contents of the canvas.
In this video I teach you how to setup a tinyDB and how to use it to save and load pictures created with the paint app.
In this video I teach you how to setup a ball on the screen that you can use your finger to fling across the screen.
In this video I continue with the ball flung app, however, I teach you how to change the animation from flung to using buttons to control heading and speed.
In this video we start doing some of the more advanced features of Android App Development. I teach you how to use the accelerometer sensor in your phone to react to the phone being shaken.
We will test what you learned in the last few lessons in this quiz.
I have been programming for about 18 years now. I have been building and fixing computers and laptops for about 16 years. I'm a Computer Science major. I spent 8.5 years of my life serving in the United States Army and I did a tour in Iraq in 2004. Those experiences have made me want to teach others things that will keep them out of harms way, and allow them to make money doing stuff they love.
I'm a father, a husband, and a Christian. I take that very seriously. I teach on Udemy with hopes of being able to give my children and my wife a better life. I hope that I can make many courses on here that can help others ultimately do the same by giving them the skills that can allow them to make more money to give their families a better life as well. I hope all of you enjoy my courses and thanks for taking them!
