Ah, the masterful architecture of the double-stuffed Oreo — it’s truly what’s inside that counts. Same goes for Android Oreo, Google’s new and improved OS. The new system contains a whole host of platform updates, better and (dare we say it) sweeter than ever. The latest version of Android includes:

Platform performance improvements

We all feel the need for speed, and Oreo is up to two times faster. That’s all thanks to strategic minimization of background activity in the apps you’re not using.

Autofill

Because it’s already enough we’ve created all these different passwords, Autofill remembers them for you . So now you can log into your Twitter, Facebook and other accounts at lightning speed.

Picture-in-picture

We know, it’s super meta — but picture-in-picture allows you to be in two screens at once. It’s super handy for all those times when you’re on the road and your boss needs you in a conference call. It allows you to use your GPS while pitching your latest brilliant idea.

More apps, less taps

Quickly clear out the notifications you don’t need to see, and dive directly into new apps right from your browser. No installation needed.

No more squashed emojis

Guess what? The squashed little Google emoji is going through a redesign. So you can heart-eye your way back into someone’s text thread without wondering if something’s going to get lost in translation.

OS updates are wonderful not only because we get to enjoy new and improved technology, but because new job opportunities follow their wake. Check out The Complete Android Oreo with Kotlin Bundle to get over 105 hours of immersive training in Android development using Kotlin. Soon, you can watch the career doors open.

Kotlin is a statically-typed programming language that’s been adopted into Android. And it’s got everything an efficient coding language should have: it’s expressive, concise, extensible, powerful and popular. Plus, it works seamlessly side by side with Java and C++ on Android. Here’s what this bundle includes:

  • The Complete Android Oreo Kotlin Developer Course
    Get started with the basics, where you’ll install the development environment. Learn to work with files and explore Kotlin programming concepts.
  • The Complete Android Oreo App Development Course
    Get up to speed with all of Oreo’s latest features, and understand how you can build, design, and secure Android apps.
  • The Android Oreo & Java Developer Mastery Course
    This course will introduce you to Java, the Android Studio, IntellJ IDEA and other key concepts of creating apps for Android — you’ll clone popular apps and use that source code as a base line for your own creations.
  • The Complete Kotlin Developer Masterclass: Build Kotlin Apps
    From inputs to buttons, reactive interfaces and more, you’ll learn full-fledged development techniques with this course.
