This week's book giveaways are in the Scala and Android forums. We're giving away four copies each of Machine Learning Systems: Designs that scale and Xamarin in Action: Creating native cross-platform mobile apps and have the authors on-line! See this thread and this one for details.
Looking through the topics included in your book there are two sections I am really interested in.
1) Using REST with Facebook and Twitter
2) Game Development
In the first case, REST, do the topics go into how to utilize REST for distributed development or specifically how they are integrated with Facebook and Twitter? Some of the projects I am looking to do would be to extend some corporate applications using a REST based interface.
2) In terms of game development, I am also looking to put together a 3D rendered game. Are the sections in your book relating to game development a good springboard for 3D development?
Thank you for your time. Your book looks like a real winner for learning Android programmer.
