I'm lead author of Programming Android, the top-selling intermediate-level Android book, now revised and expanded for a 2nd edition. I'm also lead author of Enterprise Android, the first Android programming book to focus on high-performance networked apps with an all-device UI. Now my co-authors and me are working on a 3rd edition of Programming Android.
I run a consultancy called Surfaceable.com. Surfaceable helps companies use the Android OS and Android app software in their products and systems.
I was the part-time CTO for a startup that ported the Android runtime environment to other operating systems.
"The provision of the Constitution giving the war making power to Congress was dictated, as I understand it, by the following reasons: Kings had always been involving and impoverishing their people in wars, pretending generally, if not always, that the good of the people was the object. This our convention understood to be the most oppressive of all kingly oppressions, and they resolved to so frame the Constitution that no one man should hold the power of bringing this oppression upon us. But your view destroys the whole matter, and places our President where kings have always stood."
- Abraham Lincoln, letter to William H. Herndon, Feb. 15, 1848
