Hello To All,

My name is Jim and this is my first post to this forum and website. I am just wrapping up an Advance Java Course given by my local community college and am now seeking training in Androids. Can someone on this forum recommend to me a good online place to be trained as an Android programmer? I need to be pushed some so am looking for something ligit that will keep me motivated. I work full time and plenty of evenings so if I am not registered with a good Android Training Course I probably will not be motivated to study.

Thanks a bunch for the help and take care!

Jim

Welcome to the Ranch.

I do not know of any training sites, but for self study, I find http://developer.android.com/index.html and http://www.vogella.com/articles/Android/article.html very useful. For motivation, I usually take a look at all my bills which are pending payment, and that gets me working in a hurry

Good Advice Maneesh,

How long have you been programming?

Thanks,

You should check out jpassion.com , excellent training site for getting a good base knowledge of android and plenty of other courses. It is a pay course but by no means expensive. If you just want android i think its 35 dollars for the full course package that includes presentation slide for notes, video presentations, labs with sample code you can directly import into eclipse. Great for beginner . For 99 dollars you can get unlimited to all of his courses which is great for advancing your career.

I like it. I kind of need someone to prod me along so this might not be the best course of action for me but for $35 / $99 I can't go wrong. Maybe they will throw in a cattle prodder for an extra $100.

Thanks,
Greenhorn

hello, Jim, i hope you will be fine. according to me firstly check out the mind because of java and android both are similar for the college going student.if you want to do android training get the command about the C and C++
after you may be applied for this program.
