    Introduce Yourself

    Well folks, here's a thread where you can get to know each other. For new members, feel free to post a bit about yourself - where you come from, what you like to do, what makes you awesome

    To start things off, I'm David Webb from Queensland, Australia. You may know me from my blog, http://makingmoneywithandroid.com/. Apart from Android though, I've got a lot of other interests including music (I play piano), photography & reading old-fashioned physical books (action, mystery & classical literature mainly). My most recent read was "Ghost In The Wires" by Kevin Mitnick - an entertaining & enlightening book about the most wanted hacker in the world.

    My gear consists of a Samsung Galaxy S II, Apple iPad 2 (soon to be joined by the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime), an Asus laptop (Core i7, 12GB RAM), and the old HTC Magic.

    If you're interested in my Android apps, check them out on the Android Market.

    RE: Introduce Yourself

    Alright, I'll go. I'm Oli Wright, currently based in London, England. I'm an ex-dev turned project manager who's periodically playing with Android development in his spare time. Unfortunately the latter is in short supply, but I'm trying to at least keep my eye on what's going on. Outside of Android and work I enjoy playing the guitar, videogames (I admin over at UK-TF) and picking up whatever random skills I can through Groupon (most recently, sushi making ...). Have recently been reading some classic Sci-Fi (the Ender's Game series) but am currently getting into The Future of The Internet and How To Stop It as it's been sitting on my bookshelf for 3 years ...

    I wield a HTC Desire HD and iPod touch on the move, with a backup Samsung Galaxy Europa at home. I have a custom built desktop for gaming et al, and then a Macbook Air for portability.

    RE: Introduce Yourself

    Hello David, Oli and the others,

    I'm Johannes Borchardt from Munich, Germany. I have been an Android fan and developer since the beginning of 2009. Since then I've published some apps (see here and here) and founded ANDLABS, a company specialized in Android development. I was blessed to work with some of the most talented Android developers out there and am blogging on some Android related topics on droid-blog.net.
    I'm a passionate practitioner of the martial art Aikido and love training.

    My current equipment is a Exo PC running Honneycomb X86, a Nexus One, a Galaxy Nexus and some older Vaio laptop which I connect to a 40" Samsung smart TV.

    RE: Introduce Yourself

    Hi @ everyone

    My name is Eike aka Zet and I am living in Hamburg, Germany. I am working for a browser game company and am developing my own stuff in my free time (which is pretty short). I started looking into the Android SDK just about six months ago. I have now released my first game on the market and am absolutely not impressed with my download stats (not gonna mention *income*). I therefore try to figure out now why this is the case (I think I am better at coding), hence stumbling on this forum

    My Android market stuff is here.

    I am also on Google+

    I call two Android devices my own, a G1 and a Nexus S.

    My passion is coding and drawing.

    Your game is really really cool. Very nice! Added a good comment to the market. Hope it catches on.

    Nice to meet you.

    Charlie



    Hey guys,

    My name is Charlie.

    I am a software engineer out of New Jersey who is making Android games in his spare time for fun mostly, with a dribble of income. Currently I am working for a major telecommunications company during the day and making games by night.

    As a history, I first got into coding for games by making a mod for the original version of quake called Headhunters. It was pretty popular and has been ripped off for many games since, including the most recent version of Halo.

    Since then, I have dabbled in learning 3D graphics programming but only as a part time effort for fun. No real education.

    When I got my original Droid, I figured I would give programming for Android a try. I taught myself Java which I didn't know and OpenGL which I only had a little experience in and cracked open my old high school Trig textbooks and made a game called Lava Ball. Problem is that I spent too much time on the technology of the game and very little time on actually making the game fun. As it stands, it is still a pretty cool tech demo and has made a little money with about 400 paid downloads.

    Rebound was my next game which was really simple to code and is a fun game. I am making about 5 bucks a day off of that one mainly because of its very high CTR. It has about 40K downloads but only 7K actives.

    Tap Crazy is my latest effort. It has about 15K downloads and 3 K actives and is making a few bucks a day for me.

    My latest is a brick breaker/breakout style game that is not released. It is pretty cool.

    Gonna try to churn out a bunch of low end advertised games with cross referenced ads to each other (papi marketing style) after that to try to increase revenue.

    Anyway, that is my story. Nice to meet you all.

    Regards

    FYI, currently using a Droid Razr.

    RE: Introduce Yourself

    Let me introduce myself too.

    I'm Martin from the Netherlands, 30 years old and working as a developer for the last 10 years.
    Got into programming when I was about 12 years old and never stopped since.

    I had tree windows phones before I got my first Android phone at the beginning of 2011. And I liked the idea of an open OS so I started looking into programming for Android in November this year. So basicly I just started. I'm planning of making a couple of apps in 2012, till then I am just working at simple concepts and learning the Android framework.

    I also write a blog at http://martin.cubeactive.com I try to give helpfull posts about the programming languages I use. The last two months I mainly blogged about Android.

    I stumbled upon this blog and it is fun to see a developer passionate about his apps. I hope you reach your goal soon David.

    Currently I own a Desire-Z and of course a Windows laptop.

    RE: Introduce Yourself

    Hello,

    I'm Brian and I'm from the southern US. I work as a SQL database developer and started writting apps as a hobby.

    I preordered the original HTC Dream (G1) and have been a huge android fan ever since. I always wanted to get into coding apps for it but never did until earlier this year. I could kick myself for that because if I would have started back then I could have gotten my aps noticed alot quicker since the market was tiny then.

    I have a couple of apps released so far and working on my third which I hope to release in the next month. I've gotten an ok number of downloads (almost 5k) but my income is really small. I'm learning that banner ads alone don't cut it unless you can get a huge audience or an app that people spend a lot of time in.

    Here is a link to my blog. I have a couple of income reports there. fiveHellions Development
    See my apps here.

    RE: Introduce Yourself

    Hi I'm Tim from the Netherlands,

    I'm 37 and own a bar restaurant in Amsterdam.

    I've recently started doing my bachelor in Software Engineering (HBO Informatica) and for one of the modules I have to do a, small, desk research about a subject I can choose myself.

    I chose to write a piece about the different ways to make money on the Android market so I ended up here right at the start of the forum.

    One of the things I plan to do with the skills I learn in my study is do some app developing so my stay here will hopefully not be limited to just the duration of my assignment. Seems like I've found a place with great potential and already people with quite some experience under their belts are showing up.

    I guess I'll take the role as the one who asks all the beginner questions so the rest of you can feel good about yourselves! :P
