Spring Theming

When I started this site I wanted a clean, simple, flat design which, of course, also had to be responsive.  I picked Tiny Theme as it fitted this criteria and looked great on mobile devices. The only real gripe I had with it was that on a full size computer screen, it looked a bit too simple.



New Android Course Begins

The Android course I completed recently (Programming Mobile Applications for Android Handheld Systems) is part of a three-course MOOC specialisation track on Mobile Cloud Computing with Android.

The second course in the series, Pattern-Oriented Software Architectures: Programming Mobile Services for Android Handheld Systems, starts on 12th May. I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into this and learning more about Android. The course focuses on topics such as threading and concurrency control mechanisms, background service processing, local inter-process communication and application security.

The third course, by the way, starts in July and is Programming Cloud Services for Android Handheld Systems. This one looks interesting as, amongst other things, we’ll be using Java Servlets and the Spring Framework.
