Building the next great Android app isn't enough. You can have the most amazing social integration, best API coverage, and coolest photo filters, but none of that matters if your app is slow and frustrating to use.That's why we've launched our new online training course at Udacity, focusing entirely on improving Android performance. This course complements the Android Performance Patterns video series, focused on giving you the resources to help make fast, smooth, and awesome experiences for users.
Created by Android Performance guru Colt McAnlis, this course reviews the main pillars of performance (rendering, compute, and battery). You'll work through tutorials on how to use the tools in Android Studio to find and fix performance problems.
By the end of the course, you'll understand how common performance problems arise from your hardware, OS, and application code. Using profiling tools to gather data, you'll learn to identify and fix performance bottlenecks so users can have that smooth 60 FPS experience that will keep them coming back for more.
