Android Meetup Talk: Tips for Better Android Development

I gave a talk at a Toronto Android meetup earlier today. The turnout was great and I am glad that everyone enjoyed the content. I hope that it will help guide Android developers down the right path. Here is the abstract from the talk:

The goal of this talk is to help bridge the gap between amateur, intermediate, and advanced Android developers. Pierre will provide his tips for more professional, productive, and effective Android development while sharing common mistakes that new and even experienced Android developers make. This talk will be more of a general discussion about software development in the context of Android than a hands on tutorial on how to solve specific programming problems. Pierre hopes to illuminate the path to becoming a highly valuable Android developer and a software craftsman.

I promised I would post my slides and notes so here are the slides and the notes ready for your consumption.

Thanks to everyone that came out and I hope that this information will be useful as well for those who did not make it.
