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).
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.
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.
