New Delhi: Search engine giant Google has partnered with online education company Udacity to introduce a Android programme for freshers.
“Android basics Nanodegree by Google” programme in India will provide a guided path for beginners to learn essential skills for building apps for Android.
The programme will cost Rs 9,800 per month and if the new developers complete the course before 12 months, they will get 50 per cent fees refunded.
The "Android Basics Nanodegree by Google" is aimed at those with little or no programming experience and provides entry points into Java, web APIs (Application program interfaces) and will enable a beginner to be able to turn his idea into an actual app.
