Seven Potions Woodland Harmony Beard Oil Review 2019

beard oil

In this article we’ll be going over our review of Seven Potions Woodland Harmony beard oil.

Beards can either be frightfully sexy and attractive, or the direct opposite. And for millions of men with thick beards of any length, keeping the mane down there tame enough on a daily basis can be challenging. Luckily, there is a specific hair care product designed for caring for beards: beard oil.

Skincare experts have weighed in, and concur that applying special oil tonics to the beard can actually be beneficial. Dermatologists believe that men should pay as much attention to their facial hair as much as the hair they have up there.

About This Beard Oil

Not all products deserve such a long name, but the Woodland Harmony Beard Oil is a notable exception. Seven Potions, the company behind this beard oil, prides itself with possessing the formula for the “best smelling beard oil” in the market.

The Woodland Harmony Beard Oil is for the contemporary bearded gentleman who wants to keep his facial hair healthy and smelling musky and properly masculine all day long. If you love the vibe of the 1950s and the dapper lifestyle of the True Gentleman then, you’ll love this beard oil.

Not every beard oil has its scent game at 100%. We’re happy to report that Seven Potions took extra care in devising the base, middle, and top notes of this beard oil so that it never overpowers the user, and consequently, it doesn’t drive away the ladies, too.

No scent is so good that it will keep people around despite of its high intensity. The game is to keep those musky, woody scents and overtones to a comfortable medium, so you can smell like a rose all day and make people love your new beard oil.

The Woodland Harmony Beard Oil is made from cedar wood oils, sandalwood oils, and a top secret combination of four other essential oils that make it The Bomb of contemporary beard oils. Yes, essential oils. The same essential oils that they use in spas where everything smells like spearmint.

But you won’t smell like spearmint when you use this beard oil. You’re going to smell masculine. Completely manly, with an abundance of Superman and Batman, even. In the 1950s. You get the picture, right?

The Benefits

It would be completely out of character for a man to buy a beard oil just for the smell benefit. We like smelling nice for the ladies, but we need more.

And Woodland Harmony Beard Oil is willing to give you more, just like you on a desperate date night when you haven’t groomed your beard properly, and your date is looking at you with one brow raised.

Applying this beard oil will literally give your unkempt beard a massive, manly makeover. Yes, makeovers can be manly, make no mistake about it. The blend of manly essential oils will revive your dead-looking facial wires and make them look soft and beautifully manly again.

The oil will also reduce flaking and itchiness under the beard, which is a great development if you have been troubled by dandruff and other nasty things under there. Split ends will also be dealt with in due time, as long as you keep using this beard oil.

The Good

Seven Potions is a pretty cool company, and they support the advocacy for cruelty-free and vegan products. Here’s a list of ingredients of the Seven Potions Woodland Harmony Beard Oil:

  • Apricot kernel oil
  • Fragrance
  • Cedar wood oils
  • Crambe abyssinica oils
  • Sandalwood oils
  • Jojoba oils
  • Tocopherol
  • Sweet almond oils

That’s plenty of good in a perfect little bottle of beard oil, and it’s a nice afterthought that you won’t have to buy each one of these just to get the skincare benefits.

Bearded Men Weigh In

We’ve taken a good look at actual user reviews of Seven Potions Woodland Harmony Beard Oil and here’s a summary of what they think of this beard oil:

1. It is effective in taming and controlling unruly and wiry-looking beards, no matter the volume.

2. The beard oil is of a nice and light consistency, which makes it easy to apply on the beard and spread throughout. Great for folks who have never tried skincare before, much less beard care.

3. The natural ingredients feel great on the skin, it’s a mild concoction, so it doesn’t irritate the sensitive skin underneath the beard.

4. It has a smooth and refreshing scent that’s perfect for all-day wear. The smell is appreciated by both females and males. Not overpowering, which is a plus because you don’t want your beard to stink?

5. You can use the beard oil to reduce the inflammation and itching after shaving. We’re talking about the post-razor burn feeling and the itch that occurs when the beard starts growing out again. The blunt tip of the growing hairs are responsible for the itch, and the beard oils makes these itchy hairs softer, reducing the itchiness overall.

6. The beard oil can be used as an alternate concoction for your beard conditioner, especially if your beard is down to your chest already.

What’s the best way to apply beard oil?

If you want to start grooming yourself better with beard oil, here are some easy to remember tips:

1. Apply the beard oil on a daily basis, to help moisturize the beard itself and the skin underneath.

Itchy and infected skin under the beard is no fun, and specially formulated beard oils like the Seven Potions Woodland Harmony Beard Oil can help prevent pimples and itchy spots.

2. Apply the beard oil after bathing or showering. Apply only a light layer and remember to rub the oil into the hair and skin underneath.

3. You may use the beard oil as a styling agent, and it would be a good idea to grab an appropriate wooden beard brush to help your beard along.

 

How To Make Money From Photography 2019

Camera Equipment

You’ve probably found our blog because you have invested in a nice camera body, a few lenses, maybe some filters, and you’ve been working on your photography skills for some time now.

You feel more confident about shooting daily, and you probably have more than a handful of albums of nice shots that people say are at least good (or even, “amazing!”) You are thinking of upping your game, and in your estimation, your equipment will be able to keep up with a few projects or side gigs.

You finally want to make money from photography, and you’re thinking of investing some more time in making this new personal enterprise work.

Well, there are more than a handful of ways to make money off your intellectual property, and if you are really thinking of digging to make photography your bread and butter, the industry is actually big enough to accommodate any number of photographers. Check out our list of moneymaking possibilities!

1. Small business photography

All businesses that make use of physical spaces need good photography. And you don’t even have to wait for them to contact you. You can call them, or send an email offering your services.

Businesses can put the nicely shot photos on their social media channels or websites. Create an online portfolio first so that your prospective customers would have something to look when you offer your services.

Don’t forget to offer your services to AirBnB, resorts, villas, apartments, and hotels, too. Rented spaces need the best possible photography, and if you can pull it off, you can get those checks rolling into your mailbox in no time.

2. Be a photography teacher

If you already have intermediate photography skills and you can compose most images with ease, it’s probably time to get some students and teach them the basics.

This is a huge market, especially for teens who have parents who are willing to pay for lessons. Go local, so you won’t have to drive too far to get to your students.

Alternatively, you can put up a website and create video lessons and offer a membership to customers so they can access the content. The digital landscape has changed how people get their learning, and in some cases, it may be more profitable to have actual lessons and video lessons available on your website.

3. Sell your photos

There are several ways to generate income from selling your photographs. The “traditional” way would be to submit photos to magazines and other legacy print publications, and they would purchase rights to print your images.

The second (easier) method would be to upload your work to websites like iStock and let people use your photos for a one-time fee. This is called royalty-free stock photography, and it can be a great source of passive income.

The more photos you can upload for different markets, the better off your monthly paycheck will be. There’s also an option of selling videos and animation, though this is only optional if you are focused mainly on photography.

4. Blog your images

This may not be the fastest way to earn your photography paycheck, but it is possible to earn passive income from running ads on your photography website.

The great thing about this approach is you can display your work and offer custom prints and rights to use on the same platform.

Think about it: when people like your photo so much that they’d like to hang it on their wall, they can order a custom print directly from the photographer.

If an agent of a publication, whether that publication be digital or print, says that your work is just perfect for their publication/s, they can talk to you about purchasing rights to use or print your photos. And then there’s the passive income.

Running AdSense ads on your blog will generate income as the number of views of your pages increase over time. Of course, you’d need to improve your photography blog’s visibility so more people will visit it regularly.

5. Hold a photography exhibit

Photography exhibits can be held in a variety of spaces, from public spaces to private art galleries. Or if all else fails, you can display your art in your yard and invite people to take a look.

The point here is that if you really want to exhibit your best photography and potentially sell them, you can display them via custom prints.

Don’t be afraid to show the public your work because who knows – it’s possible that your work will resonate with more than a handful of people, and you will be able to sell custom prints for a nice amount of dollars.

6. Tap social media

Since everyone else is on social media, why not bring your photography to Facebook or Instagram, too? There are a couple of ways that you can increase the likelihood of a sale through these channels.

You can create an online store via Instagram and Facebook and receive orders for prints there. Second, you can promote your exhibits and get online orders for exhibited prints.

People will share your work with their networks and this will widen your net of exposure. The more exposure you get, the higher the likelihood of getting more patrons.

7. Get into portrait photography

If you have been dreaming of establishing a photography studio for a steady income stream, this would be it. Portrait photography is easily the most in demand form of photography because people need portraits for a variety of purposes.

From head-shots to half-body shots, you can practice your craft while earning. You can use the income to invest more in your art, get better equipment, and more. The important thing here is that you are able to earn money from what you love doing, which is photography.

8. Join photography competitions

Like writing competitions, photography competitions are all over the Web. Just make sure that the website is legitimate and feel free to sign up for these competitions. The awards and accolades will definitely help build your confidence and improve your craft in the long term, too.

The Rules of Wealth: Seven Takeaways

Wealth

If you’ve ever navigated to the world of prosperity and wealth building, you’ve probably heard of or at least read about The Rules of Wealth: A personal code for prosperity by Richard Templar.

This book is one of the classics of personal wealth and prosperity, and is definitely one of the books that you should read first if you don’t know the first thing about wealth and how it wholly relates to yourself as a thinking, feeling being.

First published in the United Kingdom in 2006, the book has been reprinted multiple times because of the demand and is now considered a pillar stone reading in prosperity.

Our take of the book is: it’s a hands down, no hold barred inspirational book on building personal wealth.

Other books on wealth are often hard-edged because they’re written by really passionate people who don’t like excuses, but this book somehow softens the transition and helps people understand that wealth building is a process, and it’s a day by day effort.

The Seven Takeaways

The book is of course a set of “rules” that aren’t really rules but more of guiding concepts that are flexible and are meant to be philosophized a little bit so they can apply to everyone’s social status and life conditions. Suffice to say there’s something for everyone in the book.

1. Define your destination

According to the book, you need to first decide on a definition of what being wealthy means to you.

It can be as simple or as complex as you want, but you have to make the concept as concrete as possible.

Only then would you be able to create goals and figure out how to get to your new destination. So the place you are now was a destination, it’s now a matter of transporting yourself to another place, and this is defined by how you perceive wealth.

2. Put in the hours

Templar doesn’t mince words in saying that most people want the wealth, but don’t want to put in the hours. Wealth means working your socks off, and putting in more effort than the next guy.

There really is no shortcut, other than wishing that the wealth will just arrive by accident or chance. He believes that people want this type of wealth route because it’s not “tainted’ by hard work. In short, the real evil here is laziness, or the lack of desire to work for the wealth.

3. Know the difference between price and value

Rule number 15 talks about the difference between these two. Price doesn’t equate to value and vice versa. Something can have high value for you, but little to no value to other people.

The price of something is determined by the capacity of people to pay. An object that is worth thousands of dollars can only become ‘real’ in the sense that it can create wealth for you only if people are willing to shell out the price that you wants. Therefore, what you really need is to do is to start creating value before you think about price.

4. Put yourself in a fantastic place while working

We all know that work can be draining. Many people hate work. But it doesn’t have to be this way anymore.

Hatred of work will only drain you, and the only person who can change this perception is yourself. Therefore, Rule 35 states that you need to “work as if you didn’t need the money.”

This rule is focused on the mindset that you have when earning your bread and butter.

When you are angry and stressed, you become less focused, and less likely to hit upon those eureka moments.

Instead of being angry or stressed, we want you to be relaxed and inspired. Put your heart in what you are doing, even if it means that you will feel inspired to do something that you thought was boring or uninspiring all these years.

5. Develop a keener eye for detail

Developing wealth is actually a game of being an eagle for all the smallest details that can affect your wealth-building efforts. You have to be critical, and your lens has to be as clear as the sky at all times.

Alongside the keen eye for details is the ability to have an open mind while simultaneously being critical of the things that are being offered to you.

We’re talking about loans, interest rates, the works. All the small things add up, and some ‘small things’ aren’t really what they seem. They can have huge repercussions on your life.

Rule 56 is an essential take on a life skill that everyone should never stopped developing past the age of seven – being observant and inquisitive at the same time. Relearn these two and your dreams of wealth will become that much more concrete than ever before.

6. Don’t ignore your hunches

Hunches, also known as instinct, are the agglomeration of your life experiences and the wisdom you have so far. People have uneven quantities of instinct in their lives, because we have different life backgrounds and social statuses.

So all we can ever work with is the type of instinct that we have. Instinct may not be measurable and people struggle to express it, but you must not ignore these.

The mind is giving you a hint based on past experiences, a memory, or a pattern that it remembers. Act on your hunches but make sure that you measure the risk and costs associated with acting upon your hunches.

7. The wise know when to stop

Happiness and wealth are two different things, and knowing when to stop the process of acquiring wealth (whether temporarily or for good) is a good skill to develop.

Why? Because we don’t want to sacrifice your life in exchange for wealth. Eventually, you will hit that level when wealth will appear like a placebo and it is no longer a need, and it becomes an obstacle to happiness. If you hit this place early on, you know what to do. Just remember Rule 88.

How to Achieve God-Tier Monk Mode Starting Today

Monk

It is official, guys. We now live in the age of Anxiety and Uncertainty. But uncertainty and anxiety over what things, specifically?

Men have lost their intellectual and psychological rudders, and are being swept to and fro by currents that are now too strong for them. Men used to lead, and are the natural alphas to the world’s omegas.

This is what monk mode tries to resolve, or at least tries, because the outcomes will be completely up to you. You, yourself – in monk mode. Monk mode is not a magic bullet.

It is a concrete, hardcore method of self-improvement that aims to deliver you from your weaknesses. It aims to recreate you, so you can become better in most aspects of your life. It is a beginning worth taking, and if you love yourself, even a little bit, you would pay closer attention to how it’s done properly.

The Pillars of Monk Mode

The heart and soul of monk mode is its three I’s. They are introspection, isolation, and improvement. It’s best to go through these life-changing principles with an open mind. Imagine yourself a blank slate.

Control your inner resistance to change, because monk mode is all about change – the toughest kind of change around. Inner change. And that’s going to take some inner fortitude and strength you thought you never had. Let’s get started.

1st Pillar: Introspection

Introspection is a form of looking inward, of determining the relationship of the “I” with Truth.

Overinflated egos prevent men from even seeing their weaknesses, and the process of introspection doesn’t end with just knowing that you have weaknesses. The point of the first pillar of monk mode is you are looking inward to find solutions and fix problems with yourself.

To have weaknesses is human, but to ignore them because of your pride or laziness is never a good thing.

We can say that such tendencies edge closer to self-destruction in the worst way possible: in stasis, because you chose not to act. Introspection should be done regularly, and the output of introspection is knowledge of what must be changed, and not just a begrudging acceptance that you have weaknesses.

2nd Pillar: Isolation

Monk mode requires a certain level of isolation in order to work. Our take of isolation is you have to start distancing yourself from activities and people that are flat out distractions to self-improvement.

You are probably already well aware of what these activities are: time wasters, excessive desires, and so on. While we do not want to put a cap on your happiness, it is vital that you realize that many of the activities that eat up your time are unnecessary for your self-improvement and only drain you of the essential energy that you need to start changing.

Additionally, the isolation element of monk mode will pare down your social obligations and interactions to the absolute necessary ones only. Of course, if you have a 9-5 job, you won’t be completely isolated. But you can be isolated enough for you to begin forging yourself anew in the white-hot fires brought about by your regular introspection.

Take note that introspection is by no means associated with obsession or any other negative activity or process. Like the depth of the ocean, introspection allows you to move from the bone dry land of your bad habits toward the unfathomable depth of your own human potential, your own wells of confidence, motivation, and natural love for change.

Humans used to be brave, quick, and adaptable. That’s how our ancestors were able to carry our genetic lines to the modern era.

They were adaptable. What we learned from the age of Anxiety and Uncertainty is that modernity isn’t what it’s cut out to be. Modernity didn’t bring us joy. It brought us a truckload of weaknesses that have eroded intrinsic human strength as we know it.

3rd Pillar: Improvement

Assuming that you are performing both introspection and isolation in a balanced manner, you probably gained more than half of your life back.

You have additional time on your hands, time you are no longer wasting on activities that simply take but never give back.

This is where the third pillar of monk mode comes into play. Now that you have more energy and time, it’s time for improvement. But what can you improve?

Remember the main goal of introspection? We try to be more introspective of our lives because we want to weed out our weaknesses. These weaknesses belong to us, and us alone. In the same breath, no one else can take responsibility for these weaknesses but us.

You can’t expect your partner, girlfriend, or spouse to be the one ironing out the kinks and setting you on the straight path.

That simply is not tenable. You have to go about on your own, in monk mode.

There are five levels of needs according to Maslow: physiological, safety, love/belonging, esteem, and self-actualization. You don’t have to go level by level.

It’s actually better if you can identify weaknesses that correspond to each level and work on them as frequently as possible every day.

By doing so, you will be able to create new routines and change your lifestyle in the process.

Does this sound dry and undesirable? Good. It’s supposed to feel that way because no one likes change on Day One.

But there are many more days ahead of you, and many more chances of quitting. We’re sure that you are not the one to quit on yourself.

If you feel that you are not worth the effort, then that simply means that you have not found the things that are of value in yourself. And we go back to the first pillar again, which is introspection.

As you find your weaknesses, so must you find the inner strength and values to counter these weaknesses. They are already there, the resources that you need. And by just having these resources, you know that you are already worth fighting for.

Do Pheromone Colognes Actually Attract Women?

Man Flirting

Pheromones are chemical substances produced by the body specifically to signal to your outside environment.

Pheromones have been observed throughout the Animal Kingdom – it is by no means new in the evolutionary sense, but science is only beginning to understand how pheromones impact human males and females.

There have been scientific studies before that link the exposure to pheromones to effects as drastic as the slowing down or acceleration of the menstrual cycle and ovulation in human females.

Therefore, pheromones definitely have concrete and very real effects on the human body. They work on the outside, influencing other members of the same species, compared to hormones that work predominantly inside the body.

Can pheromones attract women?

All evidence points to the positive, though you have to be careful when using pheromones as these substances can either magnetically attract women or repel them, depending on their personalities.

If you are in the game to attract women through your raw sexuality and manliness, then you also have to put in some effort to find women who have the same predisposition and personalities so the pheromones can amplify the attraction between you and the women that you want.

Basically, pheromones just work with what you already have, and make you doubly or triply magical to women.

Pheromones can be likened to steroids – they’re not magic bullets, but if you’re doing your bit in becoming attractive to women, they sure help a lot in the buildup of that sexuality and appeal that you have wanted for so long.

Use pheromones if you have been struggling to make yourself attractive to women, or if women are repelled for one reason or another. Sometimes, it has nothing to do with what you say, but it may have something to do with what your body is signaling chemically. How do you compete with that? You can’t. You have to correct it. If your body is sending out poor, wacky, or faulty signals to potential partners or mates, that’s not the way to go at all.

What kind of pheromone colognes can I use to attract women?

There are plenty of colognes on the market, but we’ve rounded up some of the ones that hold a lot of promise for beginning players who are out to find their ladies.

Alpha Q

Made by S1CK, Alpha Q demonstrates several abilities that every player will surely find useful. Those who have tested Alpha Q report the following:

– They are able to emulate the signals of high social status and they are respected as the alpha male in packs.

– Women are hooked by the mysterious and edgy player personality that Alpha Q helps project. They are drawn to the users of Alpha Q and subsequently, it’s easy to develop the perfect environment for crushes to occur.

– Troubled by social acceptance? Don’t be anymore. This formula has been known to ease away the awkwardness associated with first time meet-ups, as well as the dead air in conversations.

Say goodbye to the pesky gap that happens every time you meet someone new, and get ready for women who warm up easily just because you’re there.

We recommend Alpha Q because we believe that it can give your confidence a much-needed boost in different situations, and everyone needs to feel accepted especially when you are with someone that you really like.

It’s also a nice touch that both males and females are affected by the pheromones packed into Alpha Q, ensuring that the alpha male is respected in social situations.

Alfa Maschio

Developed by Alpha Dream, Alfa Maschio is an excellent choice if you are after the “bad boy” feel that many women find intimidating and irresistible at the same time.

Why “bad boy?”

The bad boy vibe is actually a misnomer. What this concept is really referring to is sexual superiority and domination, both aspects of male human sexuality that occur naturally when a male is in the presence of females.

We can’t help it, actually. What Alfa Maschio does is it takes your raw sexuality and makes it more evident and people are able to take notice more quickly. Why? Because of pheromones, that’s why.

Try Alfa Maschio if you want the following effects:

– Women perceive you as a dominant “bad boy” with raw sexual powers, and that you will not take no for an answer (even if you aren’t really doing anything!)

– Create the projection that you are an attractive fellow and it makes complete sense to be attracted to you. People will feel great that they are crushing on you, or downright sexually attracted, and people will also be more willing to open up because of the effects of Alfa Maschio.

– Your attractive personality shines through, putting you at the center of the action. You are going up as an independent boy, someone who likes women, and you don’t feel like you have to apologize for being you.

Corporativo

Developed by AKA Corpo, Corporativo is one of the more balanced formulas in the market and it is a good choice if you are finding it hard to relate to women because they are intimidated of you.

Let us put it this way: some formulas make men overly dominant and appealing, to the point that women feel repelled by the raw power. Corporativo balances out the self-effects of the pheromone formula, and gives you a more open projection that will not scare away women.

Basically, with Corporativo, the net is cast much more widely because you will not be stuck with just the females who are already open about their sexuality or being attracted to males in general.

Corporativo can be used for a variety of purposes because it is considered the multi-tool of the pheromone world for males.

Use this one if you need a balanced boost in every aspect of your personality, from your swagger to your general confidence in talking with people. If you want to gain the upper hand in different social situations without being overly dominant, intimidating or overpowering, then formulas like this one are a boon.

Learning To Code: From Websites To Cool Apps 2019

Coding

It is never too late to learn how to start coding, and the Internet is filled with free and massively useful resources for every type of learner. We’ve rounded up references, resources, and even apps that you can use to make your study of coding easier.

Coding Websites

If you are interested in website architecture and programming beyond the tweaks afforded by WordPress sites, you need to learn how to hard code.

Luckily, there are websites that are dedicated to newbies who want to know how it’s really done by the pros. We’re not saying that you will master everything in one week, but if other people have done it, why can’t you?

W3 Schools

w3

W3 Schools is dedicated to providing free resources on HTML, CSS, and Javascript.

It’s a neat website for locating code to accomplish specific things while coding, and it’s a cool reference for all levels of programmers.

What we especially love about this website is that after it provides the instruction on how to code, it has several enrichment sections like exercise and quiz where you can apply the new skill or code, so you can find out if you truly understood the information.

Code Academy

codecademy

Java is one of the oldest and most useful programming languages that is used for almost every imaginable application, from websites to creating apps for mobile phones.

The earlier operating systems for mobile phones used Java extensively to deliver rich mobile experiences to users. Java is influenced by C++, its predecessor, and its latest iterations have improved the issues that have bugged it since inception, including slower implementation.

If you want to learn how to code Java, Code Academy is offering its own Learn Java tutorials. Their tutorial includes the Java Program Structure, Variables and Data Types, Object-Oriented Java, and more. There’s also a premium/paid upgrade option for people who want more resources.

Learn Python

learnpython

Like Java, Python is a versatile programming language that is used mainly for websites, mobile devices, and other experience-rich digital interfaces. It has been described as easy to learn and vital for the well-rounded programmer.

Several digital boot camps and courses online offer Python, including Learn Python. LearnPython.Org is an interactive training course for people who want to learn how to code Python.

The syllabus includes the basics, data science tutorials, advanced tutorials, and more.

You will learn about variables and types, lists, basic operators, string formatting, numpy arrays, pandas basics, list comprehensions, and other aspects of Python programming that will turn you from newbie to expert in no time.

LearnCPP

learncpp

C++ is the grand daddy of programming languages, and remains an important language that every serious programmer should consider learning, right after HTML, CSS, and Java. C++ is used not just for browsers and Web applications, but also for PC games, and animations.

It is one of the most developed languages around, and we owe many of the best games in several generations to C++.

Learn C++ is a free resource for people who want to know more about this programming language. The lessons, which are already laid out in the home page of the website, are divided into chapter and sub-chapters.

You will learn about compilers, linkers, and libraries, and how you can configure these three important aspects of C++. There are also tutorials on the technical aspects of C++, like the statements and structures of a program, and how literals and operators work.

Coding Android Apps

Android apps are actually built using different programming languages, with Java receiving the most support from Google at the moment. Which is not to say that you are stuck with using “just” Java. You can also use the following programming languages, like Kotlin, C/C++, C#, BASIC, Corona/LUA, and PhoneGap.

Kotlin is considered the ‘second best’ language for Android programming, as it also uses the Java Virtual Machine and is lauded for having a system that is easier to read and its code is also more streamlined.

Kotlin is great for people who are just beginning to learn how to code with Java, because it doesn’t even mind if you don’t terminate lines with the semicolon. For beginning programmers, any bit of help is important.

Developers Training

Developers Training

This is one of the best places to get free training on Java and Kotlin, specifically for creating Android apps. You will start with Android Kotlin Fundamentals, followed by Android Developer Fundamentals, Advanced Android Development, and more.

The modules are self-paced, and you can take as much time as you need in each modules if you are a self-taught programmer.

They also have an Android Development for Beginners course, and an Android Basics Nanodegree program that you can sign up for. All in all, the Developers Training page is a pretty neat resource for anyone who wants to create Android apps.

Udacity Android Basics

udacity

Udacity is also offering several courses on Android development, including its Android Basics course.

We recommend websites like Udacity (because there are several other online schools that offer similar courses) if you want a very structured approach to learning.

Some people like the freewheeling method of learning, of getting resources from different sources at varying speeds. Others simply don’t thrive with this approach, so if you are one such programmer, then there is no harm in signing up for more structured classes.

BONUS: Apps for Developing Android Apps (What?!)

It was bound to happen of course. There are now apps that help developers code and test their apps.

Open your Play Store and check out the following apps to see which you need right now to get started:

  • Android Studio
  • ADB (Android Debug Bridge)
  • AVD Manager
  • Eclipse
  • Fabric
  • FlowUp
  • Gamemaker: Studio
  • Genymotion
  • Gradle
  • IntelliJ IDEA
  • Instabug
  • LeakCanary
  • NimbleDroid
  • RAD Studio
  • Stetho
  • Source Tree
  • Unity 3D
  • Unreal Engine
  • Visual Studio with Xamarin
  • Vysor

These are all powerful and useful apps with different uses, and each one contributes to a different phase in Android app development.
