Following up on the previous Nanodegree program, Google has introduced an Android Basics Nanodegree program aimed to help complete beginners. There is no experience required for this, and the program will open this fall to all Udacity students. Google will also be offering a chance to win a scholarship for the Career-track Android Nanodegree.
From Google's announcement:
Upon completing the Android Basics Nanodegree, you also have the opportunity to continue your learning with the Career-track Android Nanodegree (for intermediate developers). The first 50 participants to finish the Android Basics Nanodegree have a chance to win a scholarship for the Career-track Android Nanodegree. You now have a complete learning path to help you become a technology entrepreneur or most importantly, build very cool Android apps, for yourself, your communities, and even the world.
It is great to see Google continuing to help people get started with developing apps and more. Would a program like this interest you? Let us know what you think in the comments.
