Google has joined forces with India’s National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) to to train young people in the development of Android apps.
As part of the partnership, which involves Developing Android Apps course, every participant will undergo 100 hours of training.
If successful, the training program will roll out an outsourcing industry which will offer to develop mobile apps, rather than software services, as reported by Nearshore Americas.
Peter Lubbers, head of Google Developer Training, said: “We believe India is uniquely placed to innovate and shape the internet experience of billions of users who are and will come online on the mobile platform.”
Google India launched an Android Skilling program in 2016 which was aimed at training two million developers in India over the next three years and in support of the Skill India initiative of the Indian government.
