Welcome to the last month of the year, which happens to coincide with Android Month at CodeProject!

We're all gadget freaks at CodeProject. We have our iPad Retina minis, our Pebble watches, our Garmins and our overly ambitious Canon DSLRs. We also have a bunch of Android devices and we want to bend them to our will. Writing an application for a device you can hold in the palm of your hand is one of those magic things every developer needs to do so we've setup a Learn Android section to get your started.

We're also starting an Android category for this Month's Best Article competition and we're going to be throwing around a few spot-prizes as the month goes on. So grab your ADT, a willing-and-able Android device, a beverage, and a spare evening and dive in.

It'll be fun!

cheers,
Chris Maunder

    Fine-Tuning the Engines of SMB Growth: 4 strategies for growing your business

    To assess how small and medium-sized businesses are focusing on growth through smarter internal operations, The Economist Intelligence Unit surveyed owners and senior managers of SMBs from across the globe.
