About the Book

In this very opinionated book about Android development, geared towards beginners, you will learn, among other things

* how to create a user interface by using XML

* how to make that user interface interactive

* how to start background services

* how to facilitate communication between various Android components by using Intents and Broadcast Receivers

* why King Kong should not be able to produce actual excrement BUT THE GOVERNMENTS KEEP LYING TO US ABOUT IT

* how people debugged their Android apps in the trenches of World War I 

...and much more.

Written in a very serious and dryly technical manner by Antonis Tsagaris, this tome of celestial wisdom is meant for beginners and is rated R for strong language and mild sexuality.

It also has a banana on the cover.


Antonis is the Android developer for codehouse five, a company specializing in web and Android development. Check out Karkoona, Looxie and Veterondo in the Play Store to see some of his work in action.

Antonis enjoys souvlaki, hiking, salivary glands (it's a thing) and talking about himself in the third person.

Amazon Watch

Supporting Indigenous Peoples. Protecting the Amazon.

Amazon Watch is a nonprofit organization founded in 1996 to protect the rainforest and advance the rights of indigenous peoples in the Amazon Basin. We partner with indigenous and environmental organizations in campaigns for human rights, corporate accountability and the preservation of the Amazon's ecological systems.

We envision a world that honors and values cultural and biological diversity and the critical contribution of tropical rainforests to our planet's life support system. We believe that indigenous self-determination is paramount, and see that indigenous knowledge, cultures and traditional practices contribute greatly to sustainable and equitable stewardship of the Earth. We strive for a world in which governments, corporations and civil society respect the collective rights of indigenous peoples to free, prior and informed consent over any activity affecting their territories and resources. We commit, in the spirit of partnership and mutual respect, to support our indigenous allies in their efforts to protect life, land, and culture in accordance with their aspirations and needs.
