Beginning Android 3 – giveaway

Today, well … this week, actually, I have something to giveaway. Thanks to Apress, I have one, paperback, 612 pages long, thrilling book to giveaway. I am talking here about Beginning Android 3. In order to get a chance to get it you have to perform two steps:

1. Follow me at Twitter:!/mkowsiak
2. Write a comment below this post: Beginning Android 3 (two sentences are perfectly enough) why do you prefer Android over iOS, or vice-versa.

As a name, provide your twitter account, so I can check that you follow me on twitter. Provide also your e-mail, so I can reach you if you win. NOTE! Your e-mail will not be sent to any third party! Never! Ever!

If you prefer not to provide your e-mail, that’s perfectly fine with me, but I will ask for it in case you win, anyway.

I will schedule “lottery” for next Friday, ~6 p.m. CEST – best of luck ;)

Unfortunately, only one person can win.

Drawing will be executed using R and some “fair” random generator – note, there must be at least 10 contesters in order to start the drawing. In case there are less then 10 people I will reschedule the drawing for next week.

Beginning Android 3
I prefer android over iOS because I like developing in java.
I prefer google over apple.

I like Android because I find it that it is easier to get started developing on it than with iOS. I would have to buy an apple computer to be able to develop on iOS. It seems that I could illegally work on windows or linux, but it seems too much hassle when Android is available.

@hugoestr I am happy to provide my email if I win :)

I prefer Android over ios because Android is closer to OpenMoko :)

That’s why I collect Android programming books

I prefer iOS over android because it’s a relatively more stable platform (or I just think it is). Also, I’ve been having such a blast learning Core Data lately.
