LaunchPad Android Developer Program

Program Summary

Program Overview

The LaunchPad by Vog Android Developer course will be an intermediate look at the skills, languages, and methodologies companies are looking for in an Android developer. Vog takes current industry feedback and adapts it into logical and understandable courses to ensure industry compliance and to create familiarized habits when transitioning into the workplace. LaunchPad’s Android course will be covering such topics as the Kotlin programming language, Android frameworks, Rest and GraphQL APIs, best Git practice, and personal management of both time and organization to ensure your projects are met on time and on budget (see what you will learn).

Measuring Success

Throughout each module of learning, LaunchPad will be defining unit testing to ensure your success is being achieved and personalize our approach with you to identify any difficulties. During the final weeks of the 16-week program, you will apply the learned skills to a final project and define your specialization of skills that fit seamlessly with your employer of choice.

Your Career

In your career as an Android developer, you will typically work on Android projects including frameworks such as Retrofit and Room combined with applying a basic understanding of API calls and how your system works with the backend. Practicing regular Git processes, understanding the Android Studio IDE, and keeping up with modern libraries/frameworks will also be a regular practice while employed as an Android developer. You will be expected to build, create, and maintain the entire application while understanding the difference between app-side issues and backend issues.

LaunchPad Android Developer Program

Not Just a Typical Day at the Office

The LaunchPad Android Professional Development Program will be separated into 1-week modules of learning covering two areas of study per day. The two final hours of the day will be dedicated to working on projects, studying, and mentoring from instructors/peers for assistance with any challenges or areas of difficulty.

Module 1

Training begins in the morning with two hours of lecture and lesson plans on Module 1 with one hour of assistance and application of the subject matter during the remainder of the morning.

Module 2

In the Afteroon, we will start covering two hours of lecture lesson plans on Module 2 with an hour of assistance and application of the subject matter.

Practical Application

At the end of the day, you will be given free time to get clarity from instructors and work on any projects for your end-of-program project. This will allow you to study for challenges, apply your knowledge, ask questions that go above and beyond the subject matter, and receive clarity on anything that requires understanding.
