About this item

Mastering concurrency is critical to developing software with the performance and responsiveness you and your users expect – and this is especially true in Android mobile development. On Android, interruptions are more frequent and abrupt, and concurrency involves ordering user-visible events and synchronizing with component and process lifecycles, not just ensuring "thread safety." You need a deeper Android-specific understanding of concurrency – andAndroid Concurrency delivers it. Top Android developer and consultant Blake Meike has created a complete cookbook of best-practice solutions for fully leveraging the multi-core processors and heavily cached architectures now widespread on Android devices, and for taking advantage of significant improvements in the new Android 5 (Lollipop) release. You'll find intensely practical solutions for everything from inter-thread communication to network communication to debugging complex concurrency issues. More than this, Meike introduces a simple but powerful architectural framework you can use to address new concurrency issues whenever they arise.Android Concurrency combines in-depth knowledge, proven patterns and idioms, and expert guidance on avoiding problems: for serious Android developers, it's an indispensable resource.
