Google in partnership with Udacity launched a US- based profit educational organization which offers massive open online courses (MOOC). It’s a move to enhance Android Nanodegrees developers in India. With the help of this educational program developers can learn innovative skills to develop android from anywhere in the country. In this program Google and Tata Trust will offer scholarships for Android Nanodegree to deserving students across the country.
Their main aim to provide developers an easy and affordable education to a world class level. Course duration will be from six to nine months. The program will cost Rs. 9,800 per month, and once the course is complete 50% of the tuition fees will be refunded by Udacity.
“While India has millions of software developers, we still lag in creating world-class applications. With the launch of this programme, we want to bridge the gap for the developer community by giving an easy access to learn and build high-quality apps,” said said Rajan Anadan, vice-president and managing director, Google South East Asia and India.
According to Google, India is the second largest developer base in the world and has the potential to become the number one developer population by 2018, with 4 million developers.
Google added “Our objective to make India as a largest contributor for mobile applications. As India is considered as second largest density for population growth. We dream India to become as a global leader in mobile application.
