Why should you market this program?

This is one of the few careers that has double digit projected growth rate of 17%. It helps round the software development category in the ed2go catalog.

Why are we adding this program to the catalog?

We are adding this to the catalog because we already have web and mobile developer programs, but we wanted one specific to the Android operating system. Android currently has 88% of global market share of the smartphone operating systems.

Why would a student take this program?

A student would take this program if they are interested in software development but wanted to focus on a specialty area.
