Pixplicity Academy

After years of building some truly awesome Android stuff with some of the biggest agencies and brands in the world, we’re opening our doors to our fellow developers through Pixplicity Academy.

We love sharing our knowledge, and after launching our YouTube channel, open source projects and monthly talks at conferences all over the planet, there’s no better way to do it than by placing our industry-leading developers in front of others eager to learn. If you’re interested in boosting your Android team’s expertise to Pixplicity levels – joining the academy is a no-brainer!

  • Android Wear apps and watch faces
  • Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and 360 degree video
  • Android Auto
  • Android TV
  • Google Cast
  • Building and customizing AOSP

Android Basics

May 2nd & 3rd

Our first classes have already completed in May, but the next course will be scheduled soon and will kick-off the basics for techies and developers new to Android or just beginning with the platform. Android Basics is led by our own CTO and chairman of Holland’s Google Developer Group, DutchAUG, Paul Lammertsma. He lives and breathes all things Android, so if you’re just getting started in Android, there’s no better guy to learn from to make sure you have a rock-solid foundation of knowledge to build on.

During this workshop we will investigate the basics about Android Studio and writing Java code for Android to get you a head start on developing for the platform. Although the lessons will be in English, Paul also speaks Dutch in case of questions from our local participants.

Day 1: On the first day of the workshop you will learn about and work with activities, views, intents, listviews and adapters amongst other things, applying your knowledge as you go.

Day 2: On day two we’ll review the topics and put all of that knowledge to the test by getting set up and building your very own app. Or at least the solid beginnings of one!

Of course we’ll be providing plenty of refreshments and a great lunch on both days. A dinner on the first day and drinks to celebrate the end of the workshop on day two are also included.

Trust me, I'm an engineer.
