You don’t need any course! Learn yourself by following this guideline: https://hellohasan.com/2017/07/16/android-app-development-guideline/
Check all source code and course materials of my previous course (so you can learn it by yourself!): https://github.com/hasancse91/Android-Development-Course
Still want to attend my course? OK… go on…
Prerequisites of this course
- If you think that, “I’m not so good at programming. so I wanna be an Android Developer”, go home and take a long nap. It’s not the right time for you to learn Android.
- You must have a basic knowledge of programming and Java language. I don’t show you Java syntax without Android. You have to know the topics given below. I will never discuss things like: “how to determine the number even or odd” OR “how to find the largest value from an array?”
- You must have Basic idea about data structures and algorithms
- You must have Basic idea about Object Oriented Programming
- You should have Basic idea about Relational Database
- Personal Computer with good internet connection (8 GB RAM is preferable)
- At least 1 “Hello World” print Android App by your own (that means you have to ready your Android Studio and Emulator by yourself. I don’t help you to install Android Studio, it’s also a symbol of your seriousness!)
Required Java/Kotlin Knowledge
- Input, Output, data type
- For, While Loop
- String, List, ArrayList, Stack, Queue
- Class and Object
Are you confused about your basics of Java programming? Solve this problem in the Java/Kotlin programming language. If you can solve it, I think you are capable of this course. Otherwise it can be a time waste and money waste course for you. I don’t review your code for this problem. It’s totally your responsibility. If you can’t solve this problem but think you are capable of doing this course, I have nothing to say. You are most welcome!
Suppose you are a software developer. I’m a client. I came to you and told you about my Android App Development Course. I want to start a basic course for Android. To maintain the student information I need a software (don’t think about user interface, button blah blah blah! Just need a console. I’ll use the program from the command line).
I need to store these information of every student: Name, phone number, email, address, institute name and student ID. Student ID is an auto-generated integer number. First student ID will be 1, the second will be 2 and so on. Student ID must be unique.
Every time I’ll run the program. It should give me some options like: “Enter 1 for input a student information. Enter 2 for searching any student by his ID. Enter 3 for deleting any student by his ID… etc”. Then if I enter 1, your program should take all the information (Name, phone number, email, address, institute name and student ID) as console input and MUST STORE IT IN A TEXT FILE. You have to maintain a SINGLE TEXT FILE to store information of all students.
When I run your program to find any student information by his ID, your program should search the data from that TEXT FILE and show on console, if the student is available.
To delete a student, I’ll enter the student ID and your program must search for the id in the file and if it exists, delete it from the file.

Point to be noted
- I might not know each and everything of android programming, as it has a vast range of topics. But I will teach the basics to start with and how to grow from that point
- It’s not a certification course anymore.
- After this course you might not get any JOB instantly. You need to practice more (may be 6-12+ months)
- This course outline is not final. It can be expanded or reduced. Depends on your capabilities. If all of you are quick learners and hard workers we can play with more and more topics. Believe me, I love to teach and enjoy this work a lot, if learners are dynamic and enthusiastic about learning.
- There are some project ideas in outline. This is not final. It can be changed at any time. Don’t think that if you are stuck in any project then I’ll write your code to complete it. Sometimes I’ll give you some keywords or topic name. Your job is to research using them. I’m a full time job holder. So it’s difficult to help you online. I’ll try but can’t give you a word for online support over the week. But I’ll teach you, how to find a solution using Google! Some projects you can’t complete within time. Don’t worry! If you finish it later it’s ok.
- If you don’t face thousands of problems, if your head don’t spin after sticking in a problem; you never reach your goal. If you really passionate, really wanna do something, really hard worker you can come to me. You have to spend lots of time at home in front of a PC with unlimited internet. Please don’t show any excuse like “incourse exam, family program, tuition, class blah blah blah…”. Be honest yourself, show respect to your job. Don’t excuse yourself!
