New Delhi: Technology giant Google on Monday launched its “Android Skilling and Certification” programme to help make the country a global hub of high-quality mobile developers. The programme aims to train two million mobile developers by offering a slew of initiatives to train and certify talented students and developers in Android development.
Google also launched an instructor-led training programme on Android fundamentals to provide an in-person training to students in universities. Google has tied up with training partners like Edureka, Koenig, Manipal Global, Simplilearn, Udacity and UpGrad who will operate as authorised Android training partners in India to help Google train the trainers and update Android courseware to prepare students for Android certification.
Caesar Sengupta, Vice President (Product Management) at Google, told “With nearly four million developers, India is expected to have [the] largest developer population globally by 2018. But today, only 25 percent of them are building for mobile.”
