Come join the Detroit Google Developers Group for a discussion on Android Design Patterns with Godfrey Nolan

Android apps all too often grow quickly into hard to maintain apps.  With a little more focus on architecture, developers can extend the life of their code considerably making it easier to add new features and easier for other developers to maintain your code.  Android Design Patterns looks at the emerging architectures to keep your Android apps clean.  In this meetup we take an in depth look at the MVC, MVP and MVVM design patterns using real-world examples.

About Godfrey

Godfrey Nolan is founder and president of RIIS LLC, a mobile development firm in Troy.  He is also author of "Agile Android", “Bulletproof Android”, “Android Best Practices”, “Decompiling Android” and “Decompiling Java.” Godfrey has spoken at DroidCon, AnDevcon as well as JavaOne, ASP-Connections, VSLive, Codemash, Code PaLOUsa, 1DevDay and many local Java and .Net user groups on a wide range of topics such as Continuous Integration, Unit Testing and mobile security.
