Excellent class, good material. The sections on closures and context are especially eye-opening.

Adam clearly knows his stuff and is in touch with modern methodologies. He has a great personality and is very patient. He is well spoken and explains concepts very clearly. It is especially helpful when he draws diagrams on the board.

Adam Breindel presented a fantastic summary of the overall architecture and design of the Android platform with an eye on security touch points, with references to additional information, and allowing for interactive participation by attendees.

Adam also went in-depth to provide relevant details of several areas covering a variety of considerations from both historical and timeless (e.g., patterns to keep in mind) perspective.

We are under-rating Adam by giving him a 10. He's excellent... He kept the dryest material fun, and the most difficult material clear.
