Calling all Android developers

We're mere hours (OK, maybe a couple of days) away from announcing a new competition so if you're an Android developer and you enjoy explaining the basics then please put aside a few hours over the coming months. This is a competition aimed at helping those starting out and I'm making it a personal project to learn from you all, in front of you all. A chance to teach others, win some excellent prizes, and enjoy watching me stumbling along writing my first Android app.

Details will be along in the next couple of days.

cheers,
Chris Maunder

    Protecting Android™ Applications with Secure Code Signing Certificates

    Android is on the rise. Unfortunately, popularity can also bring unwanted attention. While Android fans love the fact that it is an open development platform that offers developers the ability to build extremely rich and innovative applications, the same open nature of the Android platform is what makes it so attractive to malware creators.

This white paper focuses on the value of secure code signing practices for building more secure...
