Android Build a Weather App (2015) Exploring an API Introducing Stormy

How many hours does it take to complete "Build a Weather App" course?

Is it too long or can be done in a day?

I am powering through the whole Android track in about a week doing 1 course per day. It is doable but you need to focus and make a point of rebuilding the apps using the skills you learn at some point after the course.

P.S. Good to see that Mr. Jakuben is back in shape! I love the whole thing when a camera is switched off and another one is switched on and he uses that as a pause.

Everyone is a bit different in how they learn and their work flow, but I think that one could complete the course in a day, yes.

Happy coding,


Thanks Ken.

Hey there Pravin,

I just wanted to more of less echo Ken, I just started this track today, and it seems like it can indeed be done in a day if you take the time to do it.

Thanks Rob, I've just completed it.
