Lesson 1: Networking and Web Services
In this lesson, you’ll learn all about networks and how they work. You’ll also build your first app that utilizes a web service: “Sleeping in the Library.” This app uses the Flickr API to pull pictures of people sleeping in libraries.
Lesson 2: Building “Flick Finder”
In this lesson, you’ll learn how to parse JSON data and display it to a user. You’ll demonstrate these new skills by building the “Flick Finder” app, which displays Flickr images based on a phrase or location.
Lesson 3: The MovieDB and Authentication
In this lesson, you’ll learn the difference between user and anonymously accessed data. You’ll do so by building the “My Favorite Movies” app that utilizes the Movie Database API.
Lesson 4: Improving Networking with MVC
In this lesson, you’ll improve on your “My Favorite Movies” app to build the “Movie Manager” app. For this app, we’ll be sure to use good MVC design, and learn what this means from a networking perspective.
Lesson 5: Preparing for “On the Map”
In this lesson, you’ll start on your final project app, “On the Map.” You’ll also learn about network reliability, and how your app should behave if a network can’t be reached.

Udacity est une entreprise fondé par Sebastian Thrun, David Stavens, et Mike Sokolsky offrant massives des cours en ligne ouverts (MOOCs).
Selon Thrun, l'origine du nom Udacity vient de la volonté de l'entreprise d'être "audacieux pour vous, l'étudiant ". Bien que Udacity se concentrait à l'origine sur une offre de cours universitaires, la plateforme se concentre désormais plus sur de formations destinés aux professionnels.
