Coming Soon: XDA-University.com
XDA is visited by thousands of developers who offer their work to the community for the sake of pushing development forward. Most of these developers are self-taught. They learned by doing, and they learned by reading. There are many users on XDA who want to get into development but don’t know where to get started. On XDA, you can find guides, tutorials, and tools that go a long way in imparting the knowledge to start developing. But, these pieces are often scattered around, making them difficult to find. So we wanted to do something about it and make it a lot easier for aspiring developers to learn.
Launching soon, XDA-University.com will be a place to learn Android development, whether that’s learning how to root a phone, to embarking on more complex endeavors like building Android from source. XDA-U will be a crowd-sourced initiative that aims to be an always-growing, always-improving part of the Android community. There will even be a book, available as a free downloadable PDF, for those that want to really immerse themselves in the craft.
Right now, you can sign up on XDA-University.com, and we’ll send you an email when the site gets closer to launch.
