Notification
  • Almost all the Android App uses Notification to notify you about any updates.
Networking
  • Apps like Instagram, WhatsApp make network calls to fetch data from the server.
  • For getting started with Networking, make the Network call using the Fast-Android-Networking.
ViewPager and Fragment
  • WhatsApp uses ViewPager to let users scroll between chats fragment, status fragment, call fragment.
  • Activity contains Fragments.
Debugging and APK Release
  • Debugging - It is a learning opportunity for developers. It is one of the most important skills of any developer.
  • APK Release - At the end, you release your app on PlayStore and reach your users easily.

  • Implement Take Next Ride
Milestone Beginner
After reaching this milestone, you will be able to easily:

1. Get first internship in Android.

2. Start converting ideas into Android App.

3. Get your first job in Android.

4. Publish your app on Google PlayStore.

Learn By Doing
Learn all the above topics in our Android Development Online Course for Beginners by building the following two apps:

Course Roadmap for Professional Android Developer

Dagger
  • When projects become bigger, you will need to know about Dependency Management and use Dagger in your project to manage dependencies.
  • Companies like Google use Dagger in their Android Applications.
  • Learn to design your own dependency management framework.
Learn Kotlin
  • Revisit the basics of Kotlin.
  • Start learning the Kotlin language specific features.
  • Learn Kotlin advanced features.
  • Nowadays, the new projects at most of the companies are getting started with Kotlin. Also, the older Java projects are getting migrated into the Kotlin.
  • This is the high time to Learn Kotlin.
Architectural Components
  • Architecture components like LiveData, LifeCycle, ViewModel help in managing our UI component lifecycle and handling data persistence.
  • Challenges of lifecycle handling, Activity rotation problem
  • Learn to create a Lifecycle Aware Component
  • Sharing a ViewModel
RxJava
  • RxJava has become the single most important skill for Android development.
  • Almost every app uses RxJava to do multithreading.
  • RxJava makes developer’s life easy.
  • How does threading work in Android?
  • Also asked in most of the Interview.
  • Learn with practical examples.
Database Design
  • Apps like WhatsApp use databases to store your data at Android end and design the database to make the query faster so that your app runs faster.
  • Nowadays, we use Room which is the library created by Google. Room provides an abstraction layer over SQLite to allow fluent database access while harnessing the full power of SQLite.
  • Learn about the Relational database concepts
  • Normalization and many-to-many relationships
  • Learn about the TypeConvertors, Migration in Room Database.
Networking
  • Android Apps like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook uses Networking libraries like Retrofit to fetch the data.
  • Nowadays, Retrofit is one of the prominent libraries to make Network calls.
  • Learn to create GET, POST request and handle complex data Model
  • There are many concepts associated with the networking which you must know such as multipart for uploading images, interceptors.
MVVM and Instagram project

  • Implement Pagination feature using RxJava
Unit Testing
  • Testing is a software development process in which we do so many different things to find bugs. Less the number of bugs, the more the chances of performing well in production for that particular software.
  • It forces you to follow architecture in the codebase, helps in fast failure detection in the development cycle and helps you in safer code refactoring, letting you optimize code without worrying about regressions.
Kotlin Coroutines
  • What exactly are Coroutines?
  • Need for the solution which Kotlin Coroutines provide
  • Dispatchers, suspend, launch, async
  • What are scopes in Kotlin Coroutines?
  • Exception handling in Kotlin Coroutines
Android Build System and Memory Management
  • Knowing about the Android Build system, Memory Management is very important for Android Developers.

MindOrks Android Course Reviews

Saket Mayank
Android Course for Professional
Now I am working as an Android Engineer at Gojek Tech. Mindorks Android Course for Professionals had been a life changing experience for me. It helped me in learning new topics like (Dagger2, Rxjava, architectural components etc) and above all it made me a more confident android developer than before. I would like to thank the mentors(Amit Sir and Ali Sir) all my mindorks batch mates for their constant support. I feel privileged to say that it is because of this course I got a 6x jump in salary although I had only 1.5 year of experience (Yeahhhh it’s a dream come true for me but still I feel that learning never stops and I wish Mindorks for a great future ahead)
