About the author:
Earlence Fernandes is pursuing a Ph.D. in Systems Security from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA. Previously, he was a Scientific Programmer at Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, where he built several Android research prototypes for various cutting-edge security mechanisms. He also co-authored several scientific papers on the topic. Earlence has been playing with Android since 2008, and is an active member of the Android Google Groups for platform internals.

Instant Android Systems Development How-to provides a gentle introduction to Android platform internals without sacrificing depth. This eBook contains source code examples that are designed to be meaningful, but at the same time, do not disguise their real purpose, which is to illustrate systems development techniques and common design patterns in Android systems programming.

Readers begin by downloading the Android source code, which is a topic of much discussion on Android forums. They are then guided through the Android boot process, and later on learn various common Android systems development paradigms. More importantly, the eBook provides advice on when to use certain techniques, which is often a mystery for the novice developer. Readers who complete the eBook will have greatly improved confidence in developing good systems code for Android.

Filled with practical, step-by-step instructions and clear explanations for the most important and useful tasks, this eBook concludes with a case study of two real world Android platform extensions, which will give the user a useful reference while developing their own extensions.
