Come be a part of the team! That database book looks absolutely intriguing....if I do say so myself ;)
 
I'm the series editor for a "Deep Dive" series being published by Addison-Wesley, on Android programming. AW has asked me to get more books started. I'm looking for authors for a book on graphics APIs in Android and on user interface APIs.
I need one or two authors for each book. If you are an experienced author, if you know one, or if you want to try your hand at writing about programming, or if you know someone who should, please contact me to express your interest or connect me with the person you have in mind.
We've had two first-time authors participate in the series with excellent results. This series is a great way to get into working with a first-tier publisher, and to gain the contacts that can get you represented by a top literary agent.
Links to the first three books in the series are here:

http://www.amazon.com/Android-Concurrency-G-Bl…/…/0134177436
http://www.amazon.com/Android-Database-Best-Pr…/…/0134437993
Be a part of the biggest and best series of books on Android software development!

"mFriends don't let sFriends use Hungarian notation!"

#androiddev  
Hungarian notation is a plague on Android development. Its proliferation is nothing more than a misinterpretation and justification an erroneous copy/paste.

The only thing worse than no documentation is inaccurate documentation.

When I was in college, one of my professors once told us that our code should read like a book. That being said, I am a firm believer that if you use good variable names and good style, the code itself should be self-explanatory.

Personally, I don't go crazy with comments (I know some devs that comment every line of code. That seems like over-kill to me). What I try to do is write code that is readable on its own and reserve comments for extreme complexity.

Typically, if I say to myself "thats slick", that means that I need to add a comment.

Security PSA: If your Android app is a receiver of the Share Intent you might want to look into this.

#androiddev
Many email and messaging apps on Android utilize the Intent API for sending files shared from other apps such as Android's gallery. These Intents are standardized for sending and receiving content. Instead of sending entire files, such as videos, via this API, only URIs are exchanged pointing to ...

One of my favorite restaurants in Chelmsford. My wife and I really enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and the friendly service. The 110 Grill also serves quality food at a fair price.
