Android App Development Book Published by Local Developer

by Mike Bollinger

Donn Felker, a Minnesota developer specializing in mobile software, has authored a book on Android application mobile development.

Android Application Development for Dummies was released last Wednesday and is now available in for Kindle and Nook as well as in paperback through Amazon and several brick-and-mortar stores such as Barnes & Noble.

Felker’s book was published just as Google announced they will make significant updates to its application marketplace to improve usability and discoverability for the 100,000+ applications it houses.  “The Android marketplace is soaring with no signs of slowing down,” says Felker. “My book helps developers new to the Android platform setup their development environment, code Android applications, and submit their finished products to the Android Market.”

Donn is co-organizer of the Twin Cities Developers Group and owner of Agilevent where he provides independent consulting for .NET and Android technologies.  Prior to writing the Android book, he authored an Introduction to Android Development Video Series on TekPub, an online developer education video portal.
