What You Will Learn

Prerequisites and Requirements

To get the most out of this course, you should have prior experience developing Android apps. If you lack this experience, please take Developing Android Apps prior to enrolling in this one. We also recommend taking Advanced Android App Development if you are interested in publishing your app to the Google Play Store.

To follow along with course activities, you must have access to the latest release of Android Studio, which includes an emulator that you can use for basic testing of your apps. For the best experience, you should use a recent Android device

We share code through GitHub, so you must be familiar with using GitHub to access code. Take our course on Using Git and GitHub if you lack this background.

See the Technology Requirements for using Udacity.

Why Take This Course

Maps! Everybody uses maps, and many people love them. Maps on mobile devices have changed the world over the last few years. They not only provide a local map in your pocket, but also a map of the entire world, down to street level, and even a 3D flyaround of many major cities.

If you want to be a professional Android developer and are planning to build or enhance apps that use Google's mapping functionality, this is the course for you.
