So, are you looking to learn some Android, and maybe update your skills beyond the JSP 0.92 specification? Well, Frank Ableson and Chris King are flogging the latest edition of Adroid in Action over at the JavaRanch, and all you have to do is ask a question or two in the Android forum, and you just might be one of the lucky winners of a copy of their latest book.

If Android is your cup of tea, you might want to check out the sample chapters that are currently available, including chapter 11 that deals with location and geo-coordinates and the like, along with chapter 14 that deals with bluetooth and sensors.
And speaking of the CodeRanch, a respectable number of 'bartenders' and 'sheriffs' that volunteer over at the site will be speaking and presenting at TheServerSide Java Symposium in March of this year, so if you were ever interested in meeting some of your JavaRanch friends, gaining some of their technical insight, or even learning a bit about permaculture from the trailboss, you should register for TSSJS 2011 today.

Sign up before February 11th and take advantage of the early-bird discount.
