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.
Use Google’s Identity Platform in your apps to build a seamless sign-in experience and access user-permitted metadata.
