#1007 Google launches Android programming course for absolute beginners
If you have an idea for an app but don't know the first thing about building it, Google has the course for you.

Launched on Wednesday, the Google Android Basics Nanodegree offers to teach beginners how to build a simple Android app in Java. There are no prerequisites. Google says the target student is anyone who's used a smartphone to surf the web.

All of the individual courses that make up the Nanodegree are available online for no charge, Google said, while Udacity offers additional paid services.

The course material, developed by Google, is hosted on learning platform Udacity and builds on earlier programs such as the Android Nanodegree for Beginners. The basics course takes around four weeks if the student commits six hours a week and upon completion they'll have created two basic apps built in Android Studio.
