Things Other Than Books

He offers seminars and training on Android app development topics, from "starting from scratch" introductory material to advanced areas.

He also offers office hours chats and consulting on Android app development, in case you are interested in help beyond what fits the Stack Overflow model, the books, and the training.

Heck, he even has a blog.
