Android Design for Developers

About This Course

In this course, you'll learn how to apply the material design principles that define Android's visual language to your apps. We'll start by walking you through Android design fundamentals, then we'll show you how to apply this knowledge to transform design elements of sample apps. By the end of the course, you'll understand how to create and use material design elements, surfaces, transitions and graphics in your app, across multiple form factors.

Why Take This?
