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.

Click the BUY NOW button and start learning. The world needs your new apps!

Testimonials

"Tim is a great Teacher and makes this stuff really easy to understand. He takes you from Zero to Expert in no time at all and always answers any questions I ask him almost right away.

"Excellent communicator. Videos are very well organized and Tim articulates the important information very well. As a software programmer for over 30 years he certainly knows his stuff!!!!" - Dale Stewart

Who is the target audience?
  • The course is 100% for you if you’re wanting to be a kickass Android 7 app programmer!
  • No previous programming experience is assumed.
  • However, if you’re already an expert Android 7 programmer with knowledge of all the latest updates, then this course is not for you.

4 Courses
Java, Android & Python Expert Developer - 171,000 students!

Tim's mission is simple:  to make a difference in your life by helping you to become a software developer.  Tim does that through his Android, Python, Java and Spring Framework courses.

When Tim started programming over thirty years ago, there was no online video training.  

There was no "easy" way to learn.  The Internet, in its current form, didn't exist, and as a result, Tim couldn't "Google" for help, or watch videos on Youtube.

After learning the hard way, Tim was determined to become the best teacher he could, and to make his training as painless as possible, so that you, or any one else with the desire to become a software developer, could become one.

In between doing that, Tim spent the best part of those years as a professional software developer writing applications in Java, and a variety of other languages.  In addition he spent many years with J2EE (as it was then known), now known as Java Enterprise Edition (JEE), designing and developing enterprise applications.

Tim is relatively unique, in that he is a professional, experienced software developer who also has exceptional teaching skills.  

Many instructors have no work experience in the field!  Make sure the person you trust with your education is a real expert with substantial previous professional experience.

The bottom line for you is, when taking any of Tim's courses, is that you will learn the right way to do things from an expert, in the shortest possible amount of time.

Tim's Java, Android, and Python courses, here on Udemy are of the highest quality as reviewed by his students.   Ten's of thousands of students, just like you, have taken his classes, thousands have left glowing reviews, and many have gone on to full-time jobs, or consulting/freelancing opportunities after completing one of his courses.

Tim recently placed in the top ten Udemy instructors as voted for by his students and Udemy themselves.  

What does all of this mean for you?

You can have full confidence that Tim's courses are of exceptional quality, and that he can teach you to become a software developer if you have the desire to become one.

Are you ready to start?  You can get started today!  No previous experience is necessary.

In 2017, video training is the quickest way to learn, and with Tim's experience and training, it is possible for you to become a software developer!  You can do this!

Why not start today?  Click one of his courses below, and watch his introductory video, to find out more about who he is and what he can offer you.

Computer programmer, analyst and teacher

I am a programmer with over 30 years' experience gained in a range of industries, the last 16 with IBM.

I am now self employed developing apps for Android; programming in a range of languages including Java, Javascript and Python; and helping the next generation of programmers gain the skills that I have acquired over the years.

The first program I sold controlled stock movement in a warehouse, and ran on a CP/M computer - both the program and operating system lived in the 64 kb (yes, kilobytes) that was all CP/M systems had in those days.

I have gained experience in a wide range of industries including Utilities, Retail, Insurance and the Motor Manufacturing industry. My clients and employers have included Northumbrian Water, Arcadia, Royal Sun Alliance, Nissan and Jaguar Landrover. I also worked for Sunderland University for 3 years preparing and delivering training courses in computing.

Times have changed, the challenges are very different to what they were, but programming remains fun!

When not at my computer, I am often riding my motorbike through the wonderful countryside of the UK and Europe.
