Programming Apps

This class should be very fun, and very relevant to your careers.  We are going to focus on making apps using the same tools and style as the State Farm IT department.  For those interested in a coding internship or job, this is a huge opportunity!  3 of your peers go to work for State Farm this past summer, making almost $500 per week, that could be you!

Check out their Atlanta location, multiple buildings including the new one going up now (look for the tall one with cranes near the Perimeter!)

Here is the current State Farm Internship information:

It is assumed you had experience with Android Studio app development in a previous class.  If not, you have a little extra work to do.  Some of you might want to develop apps with Unity instead, which is fine.  We will have another Hackathon, and either is acceptable for that.  The advantage for Android is that's what State Farm uses, and that could lead to a job.

Also, the Android tutorials we are using are from Udacity.  These courses are the basis of guaranteed jobs from Udacity!  They have been written specifically by Google in order to recruit employees.  While this course does not give you that job guarantee, you could certainly do very well if you took the official courses.

For those looking ahead, here's the Udacity Database app course - 

In "Project" build.gradle
jcenter {
    //Default one is HTTPS
    url "http://jcenter.bintray.com/"

In "app" build.gradle
compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:25.0.1'
//testCompile 'junit:junit:4.12'
