Today we're launching the latest resource for developers who want to learn how to develop Android apps: our online Udacity training course "Developing Android Apps: Android Fundamentals".

*Note that the full course materials -- all the videos, quizzes, and forums -- are available for free for all students by selecting View Courseware. *

It features Developer Advocates +Reto Meier, +Dan Galpin, and +Katherine Kuan as instructors, and they’ve created lessons that are both deeply technical, but also (we think) a lot of fun. 

With Android expanding rapidly into emerging markets, and growing beyond phones and tablets into wearables, auto, and TV - learning the fundamentals behind Android development represents an opportunity to affect and improve the lives of billions of people.

We look forward to seeing what the next wave of Android developers build, and we’ll keep exploring new ways to help you become better developers.

saw a segment on mhc,  its an eye opener
As is often the case, the roles of African-Americans in the creation, building and defense of this nation are often forgotten and neglected. This is a great read!
Official histories of D-Day have long excluded the contributions made by African Americans. Literature professor Alice Mills waded into the past to uncover these forgotten World War II heroes.
