MIT Offers Android Development Classes


Starting February 8th, MIT will begin offering a course on software development for the Android platform in a growing effort to support the mobile industry. For the first semester, the course has registered 25 students as reported by the Boston Business Journal.

These students could have a huge edge when Android is finally available in the open world by having (to date) the only formal education focused on developing for the platform. While it is based on Java, android programming and coding is also a world of it’s own and companies jumping on application development first could hold huge first mover advantages.

It looks like these kids at MIT will as well. I’ll try and get their professor and/or students to pop by phandroid and offer some insight.

I'm an Android and Tech lover, but first and foremost I consider myself a creative thinker and entrepreneurial spirit with a passion for ideas of all sizes. I'm a sports lover who cheers for the Orange (College), Ravens (NFL), (Orioles), and Yankees (long story). I live in Baltimore and wear it on my sleeve, with an Under Armour logo. I also love traveling... where do you want to go?
