Great list of Tutorials and Courses from Vanderbilt University

I’ve taken many online courses in diverse topics that I’m interested in, not just computer science but all kinds. Recently I have been slowly but surely working my way through Systems Programming in Android by professor Douglas C. Schmidt at Vanderbilt University. So far this course (which is free by the way) is really great. If you really want to understand the fundamentals about the Android operating system and understand exactly what is going on this is the course to take. Android is based off of Linux and shares many of the same concepts, this course digs into those differences and explains the similarities and what makes Android tick. I definitely recommend it if you want to get the edge on Android development.

Once you get through that course, or if you get bored of it you can check out all the other courses Professor Schmidt offers on his website which you can get to through this link.

Intro to CS with Java Programming

Princeton U has up online their Intro to CS course/Intro to Programming with Java. It includes some coursework and a textbook. It is pretty good to get a broader view of CS even if you didn’t go to a top university like Princeton you can still get the content. It is pretty cool! Check it out here
