Earn Your Android Basics Nanodegree From Google and Udacity
Google and Udacity are launching a new Android Basics Nanodegree offering a series of courses and services that introduce Android app creation to those unfamiliar with Android app development. The program costs $199US per month.

Upon completing the Android Basics Nanodegree, participants will also have the opportunity to continue learning with the Career-track Android Nanodegree (for intermediate developers). 

All of the individual courses that make up the Nanodegree are available online at udacity.com/google. Udacity paid services include access to coaches, guidance on projects, help staying on track, career counseling, and a certificate upon completion.
