September Android Meetup: Mark Murphy: "App Integration Strategies and Tactics"

Speaker: Mark Murphy

App Integration Strategies and Tactics

Android has a rich palette of techniques for allowing applications to integrate with one another, from simple, hyperlink-style handoffs to full IDL-based IPC. Not all of these are necessarily appropriate for all apps, and choosing ones that make sense is an art as much as a science. This presentation reviews the possibilities and talks about how they are implemented.

Mark is the founder of CommonsWare and the author of "The Busy Coder’s Guide to Android Development," among other books on Android application development. He is active in supporting the Android developer community, from answering questions on StackOverflow to publishing sample code and reusable components as open source.

A three-time entrepreneur, his experience ranges from consulting on open source and collaborative development for the Fortune 500 to application development on just about anything smaller than a mainframe. He has been a software developer for nearly three decades, from the TRS-80 to the latest crop of mobile devices. Mark teaches Android application development worldwide for the public and for corporate customers.

Thanks to Mark Murphy and thanks to Google for hosting and refreshments.

Please update RSVP if you cannot make this meeting. There will be a waiting list.
