At Google, we are committed to helping the innovators of the future make the most of their gifts. We also believe open source development is a very useful and accessible way for passionate students to get involved with Computer Science in a practical and rewarding manner.
With this in mind, Google is excited to launch the second Google European Android Camp program! Up to 25 current first and second year undergraduate students will be selected to attend the all-expense-paid Android Camp at Google’s London office from August 11th - 17th, 2013. The Android Camp will include interactive and collaborative curriculum focusing on a practical introduction to developing applications for Android and will explore the concepts behind Android, the framework for constructing an application, and the tools for developing, testing, and publishing software for the platform. Students will also get the opportunity to enjoy technical talks by Googlers, and social activities around London.
- Provide top first and second year undergraduate students with exciting and interactive courses in Android development to build development competencies in the Android platform, culminating in application development at the end of the program.
- Allow students to get an inside look into the culture and work of Google.
- Facilitate connections between students and Googlers that will allow students to discover career paths and create meaningful academic experiences.
