Build a Simple Android App with Java– Ben Deitch (199 minutes)

This course covers the very basics of Android development. We will build a simple app that will serve up some fun facts when you tap on a button. We introduce you to programming in Android, a tool for Android development called Android Studio, and some very basic concepts of the Android Software Development Kit, or SDK. By the end you will have a good idea of how a basic app works, and you will be armed with the knowledge to start building more.

Python for File Systems– Kenneth Love (115 minutes)

Python is a great language for the automated handling of files and directories. In this course, you’ll learn how to navigate your file system with Python and create and manipulate files and directories.

Introduction to Selenium– (August 2017)

As web applications grow in size it becomes difficult to reliably and thoroughly verify that the application behaves as intended. Manually stepping through the system gets tedious and time consuming. That’s where automated testing tools become invaluable. In this course we will learn to use Selenium Webdriver, one of the most popular utilities for automating interactions with web browsers, to build automated tests for the purpose of verifying and maintaining a quality application.

Security Literacy– (August 2017)

The internet is an invaluable resource for information and entertainment, but it doesn’t always protect your privacy and identity. This course offers an overview on how to stay safe and secure when using your browser and beyond. We’ll introduce foundational concepts about how online activity translates to internet traffic. We’ll then explore some common ways that attackers can view and manipulate this traffic for their uses and how to protect against them. And finally, we’ll establish some industry-recommended habits to keep you and your data secure.
