Country’s Benefits from Android Nanodegree Programs
This program will pay its contribution to develop smartphone adoption of country which is not as big as that of the US and China.
India will overtake the United States as the second largest smartphone market globally, by 2017.
This will not only help budding developers ply their craft, but will also help grow Android’s market share as there will be local developers catering to local demand.
Despite of having millions of software developers, we still lag behind in creating world-class apps. With the launch of this program we want to bridge the gap by providing India’s developer community an easy access to learn and build high quality apps for the world.
