In this course you will learn the fundamentals of Android mobile application development through a project centered approach. A combination prerecorded lectures along with live weekly wrap up sessions are used to maximize the learning impact. Replays of live sessions will be posted so even if you can't attend a live session, you won't miss a thing. Your trainers include Developer Advocate Jim McKeeth and Software Consultant Craig Chapman, both from Embarcadero Technologies.
This course assumes you are familiar with Delphi development, but want to gain an understanding of mobile development. The fundamentals of this course will also work for iOS development. Most of the differences for iOS will be pointed out during the course, but it won’t be the focus. Most of the sample courses can be compiled to Android, iOS, macOS and Windows.
This course is self-paced with live weekly lectures. You may enroll at anytime and learn at your own pace. If you miss or cannot attend a live lecture or enroll late, it's ok as we will be posting replays of the live classes after they happen for you to view at your own pace and schedule.
To complete this course you will need either a recent version of RAD Studio Professions, Delphi Professional with the Mobile Add-on Pack, or Enterprise edition of either. The trial edition will work for the completion of the course.

I am a Developer Advocate. I really always have been. During the 20+ years I was busy as a software engineer I always enjoyed sharing and teaching the things I found exciting in the world of software development. Every change I got I would peer-mentor, speak at software developer groups, podcast, speak at conferences, create screencasts, blog, write or just bend your ear.
