This email mini-course is an excerpt from Android Design Patterns: Interaction Design Solutions for Developers (Wiley 2013).
“The humorous prose is colorful and makes the material a fun read… This is very “visual” reading, and is much enjoyed and appreciated. The analysis is spot on, and expertly worded… It’s a winner. We need more of this colorful kind of writing about technical things.”
– Smashing Magazine reviewer
