Seeing Googlers and their parents writing XML layouts warmed my heart..haha!
 
Parents Building Android Apps at Google’s “Take Your Parents to Work Day”

Ever wondered what it would be like if your mom built an Android app? What would she make? At this year’s “Take Your Parents to Work Day,” over 200 Google parents started to build their very own Android app. We’re talking zero coding experience. Check out the video to see what they made!

If you also want to learn how to make apps, enroll in the Udacity Android for Beginners course. Click on the “Access Course Materials” button to get started for free! goo.gl/zGZkB4

Hey +Katherine Kuan  I just finished doing Lesson 1 on the Android Development Course for beginners on udacity and after I finish that course, I am planning to take the Android Developer NanoDegree Program. I am 16 years old currently and I really want to work for Google, improving and developing google apps as well as the Android OS itself. Are there any suggestions that you would like to give to me? I also have a question about whether to go to college or not. Not that I am afraid of doing work but I feel like I will be wasting my time, taking the required classes that will not be related to my career. Thank You for those videos. They are VERY easy and make me want to work for Google and Android more and more.

Love this idea! An app for blind users that makes the phone vibrate when it detects a smile.

It does this using the Google Vision APIs! See the DevByte on face detection here: http://goo.gl/flEpC0

Logging on Android

If you want to check the value of some variables or that certain code paths are being executed when your app is running, you can temporarily write that info to the logs. A must-have for debugging your Android app!

Learn to build an Android app. No coding experience needed.

The biggest barrier to learning Android is not having programming experience, but that is about to change. In this free, self-paced course, you’ll learn how to build several simple Android apps (using XML and Java) and learn computer science concepts along the way.

The course contains 3 lessons and a Final Project, where you build your own app that can be published on the Google Play store. Feel free to share with anyone who may be interested in learning! Thanks!

I sat down for some coffee to catch up with +Laurence Moroney! Yes, it is this sunny in California all the time. We also discuss a new Udacity course I'm working on that I'm super excited about. 
 
Enjoy #CoffeeWithAGoogler in the sunny gardens of Mountain View as +Laurence Moroney and +Katherine Kuan talk about some of the great materials that are available to help you get started with Android Development!

How cool! There's no one better who knows what teachers need, than teachers themselves.

I came across +Glen Botha's story from this +Android Developers post on "What's your proudest moment as an Android dev?" If you have one, please share! goo.gl/35KL43 
 
Android Apps for Teachers

Hi, I'm a teacher that started making Android app for teachers.  I wanted to share two completely free ones I have released.  

1. Name Learner - allows the teacher to create class lists and add student photos to help learn names faster.  You can also take a quiz to match names to faces.  May be helpful for non teaching staff to learn names faster. 
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.apps.ips.NameLearnerDemo2

2. Rubric Scorer - create a rubric ( up to 10 x 10) and easily tap to calculate rubric total score, percent and average.  Add student comments and generate a PDF hardcopy.  Print off rubric templates.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.apps.ips.rubricscorer 

Always happy to hear from teachers about ideas for apps they'd like, or if you want to teach app making to kids.  I use App Inventor to teach students how to program though Android apps.  

Here's my website for teacher apps.  www.inpocketsolutions.com
