About the Author:

Shane Conder has extensive development experience and has focused his attention on

mobile and embedded development for the past decade. He has designed and developed

many commercial applications for BREW, J2ME, Palm,Windows Mobile, and Android.

Shane has written extensively about the mobile industry and evaluated mobile development

platforms on his tech blogs and is well known within the blogosphere. Shane

received a B.S. degree in computer science from the University of California.

A self-admitted gadget freak, Shane always has the latest phone or laptop. He can

often be found fiddling with the latest new technologies, such as Amazon Web Services,

Android, iPhone, Google App Engine, and other shiny, new technologies that activate the

creative part of his brain. He also enjoys traveling the world with his geeky wife, even if

she did make him dive with 4-meter-long great white sharks, and he almost got eaten by

a lion in Kenya. He admits that it was his fault they got attacked by monkeys in Japan

and that perhaps he should have written his own bio. (Author’s note:Wait, what?!)

 

Lauren Darcey is responsible for the technical leadership and direction of a small software

company specializing in mobile technologies–Android being the most exciting

and promising for the future.With almost two decades of experience in professional software

production, Lauren is a recognized authority in enterprise architecture and the

development of commercial-grade mobile applications. Lauren received a B.S. degree in

computer science from the University of California, Santa Cruz.

Lauren spends her copious free time traveling the world with her geeky mobileminded

husband and is an avid nature photographer. Her work has been published in

books and newspapers around the world. In South Africa, she dove with 4-meter-long

great white sharks and got stuck between a herd of rampaging hippopotami and an irritated

bull elephant. She’s been attacked by monkeys in Japan, gotten stuck in a ravine

with two hungry lions in Kenya, gotten thirsty in Egypt, narrowly avoided a coup d’état

in Thailand, and walked part of the Great Wall of China, where she took the photograph

that graces the cover of this book.
