Baltimore Author, Jeff Six, presents a talk highlighting his recent book: Application Security for the Android Platform: Processes, Permissions, and Other Safeguards.
With the Android platform fast becoming a target of malicious hackers, application security is crucial. This concise book provides the knowledge you need to design and implement robust, rugged, and secure apps for any Android device. You’ll learn how to identify and manage the risks inherent in your design, and work to minimize a hacker’s opportunity to compromise your app and steal user data.
How is the Android platform structured to handle security? What services and tools are available to help you protect data? Learn from Jeff how to address real threats to your app, whether or not you have previous experience with security issues.

The meeting starts at 6:30, and we’ll get on with the main event at 7:00. 6:30 – 7:00 is reserved for chit chat, socializing, and pizza eating!
Bring a friend that’s interested in mobile development, someone looking to refine their skills, or share what they have learned! The more the merrier. We’ll be going to Langermann’s afterwards. Langermann’s is in the same area as the ETC. No driving required.
We are meeting at the ETC conference room in Canton. Those that have been to Beehive Baltimore, or have been to events hosted in ETC should be familiar with where we will be.
