Yea me too, it was a really cool course. Are you planning on following the next course? It seems like a tough one!

I also followed the Coursera's course on Android by prof Adam Porter: it's free as well and it just ended, so it's really up to date. It is based on a different approach though, covering different topics and providing several little projects, instead of a single one.

Imho though you do need some knowledge of Java. I came from a C++ background, so i was able to follow those courses while also learning bits of Java too, but starting with zero knowledge of both the Android api and Java could really be overwhelming, just warning you.

While following the Coursera's course, I saw people recommending a free course about Java taught by John Purcell on the Udemy platform (I might be wrong on the guy's first name).

It's a course called “Developing Android Apps.” It's about 60 hours worth ... Java game developer, but you want to learn how to port to Android,
