Course objectives
The aim of this course is to extend basic knowledge of programming mobile applications for Android platform gained in PV239 and exercise the practical application in concrete projects.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course students will understand selected chapters of advanced design and implementation and they will be able to create a complex mobile application ready for publishing. They will understand the development cycle so that the application meets official guidelines from Google. After the course, students should be able to make Android applications at advanced level.
