Course Description

This free online course presented by Vanderbilt University MOOC describes by example how to connect Android mobile devices to clouds using object-oriented design techniques, Java programming, Jetty middleware, Java servlets, the Java Spring Framework, and cloud computing platforms such as Google App Engine.

Although the cloud service topics in this course will be taught in the context of connecting mobile devices to the cloud, the concepts are broader and will give participants the ability to create the cloud services to support large-scale Web applications, such as social networking applications, cloud services for embedded systems, and wearable computing devices, such as Google Glass.
