Coursera, Udacity, Udemy Android Courses, which to take?

I'm a fairly experienced developer, working mostly with SQL, Python, and R, but let's just call my Java knowledge zero. I want to get into developing some Android apps on the side for fun and to expand my skillset. However there seems to be a neverending supply of courses, books, videos, etc... to learn Android and I don't know which one to start with. Three below that caught my eye I'm considering starting with:

I rather enjoy a course style learning, I have taken several Coursera courses before and loved them. Particularly I enjoy a text with supplementary videos, not videos with supplementary text as many courses are.

Anyways, does anyone have much experience with these (I realize most of the edX one's are new)? Any recommendations? I doubt I need to take all three sets of courses but ideally there's a more or less "best" one.

This is the track I took as it's what Google recommends:

Do this



and then this

and then you will have an idea of what to do and how to do it with Android


All of the above are a little out of date, however that does not matter. I've heard they are all going to be refreshed in Kotlin soon. They are all free!

Either way, until you are familiar with the above you are going to have a pretty tough time with Android, however completing the above will make life a LOT easier.


Good luck.
