Udacity and Google team up to bring developers free Android Wear course
Google’s Android Wear initiative was first revealed last year, and since that time we’ve seen the platform evolve a fair deal, adding a number of elegant new smartwatches to its rank with some of the latest offerings coming from Motorola, LG, and Fossil.
As time passes, more and more app developers are bringing at least rudimentary Android Wear support to their apps, but if Android Wear is going to emerge as the dominant wearable platform on the market – it’ll need more killer apps. To that end, Google is teaming up with Udacity to bring developers a free course that focuses on Android Wear watches and how to reach these users with custom watch faces, apps, notifications, and more.

Google has a fairly long history of working with Udacity, and for good reason, as the learning platform actually offers pretty good courses at relatively low, or even sometimes free, prices. As with most developer courses, the Android Wear development course is aimed at experienced developers who are looking to dive into AW development, with the course giving advice, sample code, instructor videos, and more.
Google and Udacity says the course should take about six hours of work a week, with a completion time of about two weeks. For more details on the course, you’ll want to head on over to Udacity’s website.
