There’s no better way to prove the importance and need for androids and smart phones except by the fact that most of you are reading this article on your phones using an app. An article that I wrote on my phone using an app. All of this has been possible by early app developers who wracked their heads hard to come up with an idea and develop it for use. Fortunately, the ‘hard’ part of wracking heads can now be eliminated with the android development courses. It cannot be stressed enough why android development courses are important. The digital world thrives because of people who have knowledge of app development.

 

Not only are these courses easily available, but they’re also available in abundance. Responding to the constantly increasing demand of this particular skill, there are thousands of institutes and organizations that offer these courses, online and offline – some free and some paid.

So here is a comprehensive list of what is taught in these courses –

  • A complete study of Java which is used for android and apps.
  • Authentic coding, i.e., not blindly copy-pasting.
  • Creating apps using different developers.
  • Making clone apps of established and popular apps.
  • Object Oriented Programming, Data Structures and other such concepts.
  • Software Designing.
  • Deploying the apps in Google Play Store.
  • Employment of API, Geolocation.
  • Understanding advanced features of android.
  • Designing apps so well that you get paid for it.

 

If a beginner, you can choose a beginner’s android development course, or any suitable course which provides you with the most to turn you from a beginner to an advanced android developer.

 

Speaking of android developers, another emerging job opportunity in this digital era is that of data analysts.

 

Data analysts, especially those who have a data analytics certification, are the need of the hour. Data Analytics is examining data and information, and deriving insights from it. These insights are used by a number of organizations and enterprises to design strategies, make updates and developments to the existing system or generate alternatives.

 

Data analytics certification courses come in undergraduate programs, non-degree programs and as small training programs, which aim at specialization in data and big data analysis. These certificate courses hold a certain edge over the non – certificated ones as they assure the employer of a certain or particular skill set, specialization and experience. These certificates also help beginners or first timers to gain their very first jobs, helping in the generation of crucial and rare experience which is a further incentive in this increasing market.

 

Data analysts get jobs in the industries like the health care, gaming, travel, etc.

They analyze their users’ profile, get information on what they like, don’t like, what is more liked, what isn’t, popularity within the gamer community, etc. Optimizing this data, they gain insights which their mother companies use. The same goes with travel and health care. Data analysis is an organized systems where companies use algorithms to understand data, and gain insights into their users and the market. Analysts with a data analytics certification learn programming (R and Python), statistical and mathematical skills, communication, data analysing skills, etc, and use these specializations to get paid.
