Google Lets Android Developers Hone Their Skills with New Tools

Google has launched a new Android tutorial classes program to help new developers create quality applications for the platform.

The new program, called Android Training, has been designed to allow new and old developers to polish their skills and learn best practices for solving Android problems.

In a post on the Android Developers blog, Reto Meier, Android Developer Relations Tech Lead, said that program, which is currently in beta, will help developers tackle problems like designing effective navigation, optimising battery life and managing audio playback. The company said that it plans to add more classes to the program as it progresses.

"Each class explains the steps required to solve a problem, or implement a feature, with plenty of code snippets and sample code for you to use within your own apps," Meier wrote on the blog.

"We're starting small and this is just the beginning for Android Training. Over the coming months we will be increasing the number of classes available, as well as introducing over-arching courses and sample apps to further help your development experience," he added.

Google is known for sharing code and helping out novice as well has experienced developers whenever it can. The new program would create an official channel for Google to solve everyday problems and help them hone their skills.
