Developer Mark Murphy to Talk Android Plugins at XDA:DevCon 2013

If you are an Android app developer, you know that however great the Android OS is, it has some failings. One of those limitations is inflexible permissions. However, there are ways to work around that. Using a plugin strategy where the main app can be extended by users is one way to get around that limitation. Except Android doesn’t have a single model for plugins, but it does offer many ways to create plugin-centric architectures for apps.

If you have often thought about building an app to support plugins or wondered why plugins are important, you should attend this year’s XDA:DevCon 2013. One of our speakers is Mark Murphy, founder of CommonsWare and author of “The Busy Coder’s Guide to Android Development.” He is active in supporting the Android developer community, from answering questions on StackOverflow to publishing sample code and reusable components as open source.

Mark’s experience ranges from consulting on Open Source and collaborative development for Fortune 500 companies to application development on just about anything smaller than a mainframe, and he is a three-time entrepreneur. He has been a software developer for nearly three decades, from the TRS-80 to the latest crop of mobile devices.

As a man with immense experience, Mark will give anyone interested in app development loads of information at XDA:DevCon by presenting why plugins can be important and how to plugin-enable your app. He will be using apps like Roman Nurik’s DashClock as an example. Join us August 9 to 11 in Miami for XDA:DevCon 2013. Register to attend using this link for exclusive savings.
