Powered by Google and Udacity, the Andela Learning Community (ALC) launched in Nigeria in February 2017 as ALC 1.0 and attracted over 4500 applications and with 2000 learners successfully going through the program.
Andela has today announced that the online Android course is now available in Kenya as ALC 2.0 and is open to all aspiring technologists.

Andela Learning Community (ALC) 2.0 powered by Google connects people who are interested in learning software development with beginner or intermediate courses in Android/web development or product design. Powered by Andela and Google, and featuring course curriculum from Udacity, it is designed to spark a generation of tech talent across Africa.

The firm says applications are open to anyone above 13 years with reliable access to a laptop and internet. Applications to the program close on 21st October 2017. Prior programming experience is not required.

ALC 2.0 takes place online, with optional in-person meetups and candidates are selected through an application process. ALC 2.0 is split into two ‘tracks’ based on level of experience.
The beginner track is for candidates with no prior programming experience and starts from the absolute beginning and provides candidates the option to learn how to develop apps, build websites, and/or build technology products. The intermediate track is for candidates who have 1-2 years prior programming experience on Android, web development, or product design.

Though ALC is powered by self-learning, the program features peer-learning groups through online and physical community meetups. The program is delivered through Udacity and features learning content from Google and small group learning programs organized and run by Andela.
