Learning to make your own android apps isn’t easy, especially if it’s your first time programming anything.

A few months ago, Google and Udacity released their first “nanodegree” course for intermediate Android development, today, they’re going backwards to teach you the absolute basics.

Google introducing an Android Basics nanodegree (available in a week-long free trial) at Udacity that has Google experts teaching you how to write simple Android apps, even if you don’t know a single bit of code. The online course guides you far enough through Android Studio that you’ll have an “entire portfolio” of programs by the time you’re done — you may not write the next Instagram, but you should be comfortable.

It’ll even give you a scholarship for that mini-degree if you’re one of the first 50 people to complete the Basics course.
