If you still have a pending subject to learn to program applications for Android, you may be interested in Google’s new educational program.
Google gives you a new opportunity to learn to program from scratch and for free. You just need to make space in your agenda and be constant to follow the entire study program.
Android Basics in Kotlin is the name of this Google course to learn the basics of programming using Kotlin at your own pace. At the moment, only the first unit is available, but the complete program consists of 5 modules.
Following the same style as the rest of the Google courses, this new proposal combines many activities, videos and exercises so that you can put into practice the concepts that you are learning in the lessons. And of course, a fundamental requirement to participate in the course is to have a computer with Android Studio installed to carry out all the practices.
If you want to keep track of your performance or follow up on the lessons you are passing, you will have to log in with your Google account. And the same applies if you want to obtain the badges offered by the course each time you finish a session of the program.
At this time, the course is only available in English. But if you don’t have a good command of the language, don’t worry, you can use the Google Translate extension to translate the content. A dynamic that you can also apply to videos, since they are hosted on YouTube.
You just have to play the video directly on YouTube, activate the subtitles (which are in English) and use the translator extension to translate all the content. Of course, the translation will also include the subtitles as they appear in the video.
