👋 Hello!

I’ve dedicated over a decade to Android, more than half of those years catered towards Android’s use in enterprise. It has more than paid off as today I’m considered to be a leading voice in Android Enterprise across the globe, and have received multiple accolades including for contributions to the Android Enterprise community, Platinum Google Product Expert status in the Android Enterprise Help Community, vExpert status from VMware for Android contributions, and more.

Android has been a passion of mine from my very beginnings in mobile technology; from picking up the original G1 and the years of modding and ROM customisations across countless devices, to today building, deploying, and supporting hundreds of thousands of managed Android devices around the globe as an ecosystem Product Leader and Certified Android Enterprise Expert. Everything I learn I write about here, and I hope my resources help you and your organisation to better understand and support Android in the enterprise, also.

After a year of designing and developing, the new site is live. Come and see what's new.

AER dropped the 3/5 year update mandate with Android 11, where are we now?

Continuing on from losing my bet with Google, I’ve been spending some time with the Android security transparency report and ended up taking a long, hard look at the impact of dropping the Android 10 & below requirement for devices to receive 3/5 years of updates in order to be recommended by Google.

I made a bet with Google (and lost)

I owe someone a Steak dinner.

On building Android devices

As 2020 comes to a long-overdue close and we head into what anyone can hope will be a slightly less chaotic new year, it also edges closer to what will soon be two years leading product with Social Mobile. With the results of all the hard work now materialising, I think it’s interesting to reflect on the last ~18 months, what it’s lead to, and what’s next.
