Be Part of The Next Generation of Android
Android 6.0, or Marshmallow, is the biggest thing to come to Android devices (including tablets) since the development of the Android system.
With Marshmallow, you'll never have to miss new email with new displays allowing your inbox to show next to the message you're reading. And with new ripple animations, you'll be able to touch and swipe your screen in new ways.
Developers are just starting to see the potential in this new technology, which means games, videos, and messaging are all about to undergo transformations that were previously unattainable with current platforms.
Combine all this with 64 bit architecture, and improved A/V sync, and you'll be able to use Lollipop to develop apps that you've always dreamed of.

During this course you'll learn everything there is to know about developing for Marshmallow, including taking advantage of its new animations and crystal clear graphics.
You'll begin with an overview of Marshmallow, Google's naming conventions, and Android core concepts.
Configuring of Android devices is explored in detail, allowing you to setup your own real Android device for testing or an Android Virtual Device (An emulator which runs on your Mac or PC). This means you can still create apps even if you do not own an Android device!
Once you're up and running with the software, you'll begin hands-on building, beginning with simple apps such as a calculator, a top-10 daily apps display, and even your own Youtube video player.
Each and every step of the build process is shown in detail, and clear explanations are given as to why you are doing things in a certain way, to really solidify your understanding of the Android development process.
Not only can you follow along with the videos step by step and build Android apps, but you will also understand what you are doing as well!
Building these projects will help you understand the basics of Android development, and then in the coming weeks, the more advanced apps being added to the course will show you many of the new techniques and functionality built into the new Marshmallow SDK to really make your apps pop!

By the time you finish this course, you'll be ready to design and deploy your own work as one of the first wave of Marshmallow developers!
Tim's mission is simple: to make a difference in your life by helping you to become a software developer. Tim does that through his Android, Python, Java and Spring Framework courses.
When Tim started programming over thirty five years ago, there was no online video training.
There was no "easy" way to learn. The Internet, in its current form, didn't exist, and as a result, Tim couldn't "Google" for help, or watch videos on Youtube.
After learning the hard way, Tim was determined to become the best teacher he could, and to make his training as painless as possible, so that you, or any one else with the desire to become a software developer, could become one.
In between doing that, Tim spent the best part of those years as a professional software developer writing applications in Java, and a variety of other languages. In addition he spent many years with J2EE (as it was then known), now known as Java Enterprise Edition (JEE), designing and developing enterprise applications.
Tim is relatively unique, in that he is a professional, experienced software developer who also has exceptional teaching skills.
Many instructors have no work experience in the field! Make sure the person you trust with your education is a real expert with substantial previous professional experience.
