No, that title is not satirical in any way, shape, or form. Google has teamed up with General Assembly to introduce a course in Immersive Android Development, which includes coding classes and lectures from guest speakers who will come in and teach from their expertise on specific portions of the course.
This is an ultra chessmaster move from Google as creating a stream of Android developers allows them to control the quality of those who will one day go on to work on their Android OS making sure they’re given proper training in the topic, it also allows the company to dip into the creativity of the bright new generation who are finding it hard to find work out here.
This is a great opportunity however the course costs over £8,000 and we’re not quite sure when it will be available in the UK as currently it is only available in San Francisco & New York, but if you have a spare £8,000 burning into your pocket then go for it when it comes around this part of the world.

Google hasn’t stopped since the name change, it has carried on innovating and driving forward to push the limits of mobile phone technology. Google has recently updated it’s Android operating system to Marshmallow, keeping with the dessert and sweets naming initiative. Marshmallow has ton of new features however the biggest is probably it’s ‘Google Now Tap’ feature which allows the phone to google from any app, for example if you’re texting someone about seeing a movie you can use the feature to quickly look up what movies are on in your area as well as times. Could Now Tap be a revolutionary tool for the future?
Only time will tell.
