  1. Android is the thing where every developer can practice skills! Maybe that’s the reason all my friends involved in development prefer Android, not iOS :)

    I am trying to enroll in this course but I dont see a way to do so freely. I thought jetbrains is sponsoring this course.

    Can I get some help here please ?

    My company sent me to one of Dino’s workshops while at a conference in Las Vegas in 2007 – it was so bad I left after an hour. Besides, his area of expertise is Microsoft Web technologies – now he’s going to teach us Android? Pass.

    • Bas says:

      dude.. That was 6 years ago! Android didn’t even exist back then. Well, almost not.

    • Alex says:

      So .NET developers are not able to become Android developers? Wow, your bias is showing. What a ridiculous statement.

    • ELG says:

      so you were in Vegas and you left a workshop because it was “bad”… that what you told your boss?

    • ian says:

      Your comment would have been the more valuable had you said what was poor about the workshop. It’s easy to criticise: but hard to do so in an informative way. Criticism without evidence speaks volumes about the author of the criticism – and says nothing at all about the subject of the criticism.

    I’ve just see the 1st lesson. Very interesting, but I suggest to not stay 2 minutes and more with the same screen (in the beginning) For example, when Dino talks about the pre-required sw installed, should be nice to see a written list.
    As soon as I have time, I’ll see all the course.

  7. Sergey Zaika says:

    Thank you for this! It titled as exactly what i need so i will try it.

  8. bhupesh says:

  9. Chris says:

    Is the source for the examples being used available? It seems sometimes in the lesson everything in the interface isn’t spelled out and I would like to be able to inspect it a bit closer to make sure I understand it and nothing is being missed.

    Our collaboration with TutsPlus on this course was for us to provide the course free of charge to them, and in exchange they’d be making it a free course. At no point did they speak of charging for it. This comes as news to us also :/
