It’s that time of year again — when thoughts turn to a new year ahead and what opportunities there might be for learning new skills and improving one’s chances for success in 2017.
That’s why the timing couldn’t be more perfect for a recent announcement from Udacity offering a limited number of full scholarships (generously funded by Google) to help people living in the European Union — from novices to experienced — learn the tricks of the Android developer trade.
The programming classes are designed for everyone from people who have never written a line of code to practitioners who have been programming for years.
For instance, the Android “Beginner Path” course will show scholarship winners how to build their first apps, providing three-month access to the Android Basics interface as well as support from Udacity mentors. No programming experience whatsoever is required. The top 1,000 students will receive an additional 3-month scholarship to the “Android Basics Nanodegree Program.”
Interested applicants must apply by December 18, 2016. Scholarships will be awarded by January 5, 2017.
