Android Programming lets you create stuff that's meaningful . And that's what we focus on !
Any programming language is just another language unless you learn it the right way. A programmer can not benefit from its features if she/he does not appreciate a Programming Language's core concepts.
Being an open source platform, it is very important to learn how to solve the problems taking help from other Android Developers. During the course , we guide students how to be not just a programmer but be an active participant in the Android Open Source Community !
In this lecture, we introduce Android Studio and broadly discuss different components of it. Students will require an internet connection to download Android Studio .We recommend to install the latest version of Android Studio and other required modules. Using an older setup from another computer will again require to be updated.

Android Developers team at Sisoft Technologies. Our dream is to make people independent learners who can learn anything online. Let's create a world where education is not limited to fortunate ones.
We advise our students to write a code daily and revisit the same code after a week. You will see yourself growing up as a coder :)
