  • Develop for simulators and real devices
  • Understand the basics of Android Development with Jellybean, Ice Cream Sandwich, Gingerbread and the Java SDK

Course Feedback

The tutor was very helpful and answered all my questions well. They eased into the Java nicely and left me confident with the platform. I now feel capable of creating an Android app!

Daniel Baker - Immediate Media

The content was great from start to finish.

Russell Mead - Parexel MMS Europe Ltd

A huge subject broken down into good workable chunks. Good tutor and the content was fun.

Michael Thompson

Good overview and introduction to core concept.

Chris Woodham - iCrossing Ltd

Got a better overview of the Android platform. The hands on approach makes you really learn.

Peter Gale - Immediate Media

I recently attended the 5 day android app programming course. It's safe to say that I really enjoyed myself and I now feel like I have what I need to start programming apps for my tablet and making money on the Google play store. I was at all times treated like a guest and felt that whatever I needed all I had to do was ask. I'll definitely recommend Silicon Beach to others and given the opportunity I'd be back in a flash.
