Proguard for Android with Maven without shooting yourself in the foot

Apache Maven, Android and Testing at AnDevCon

AnDevConAfter presenting about Apache Maven usage for Android development at the Vancouver Android Developer group and the Barcelona GTUG as well as the first Canadian Android Developer conference AndroidTO, I am taking another step forward. Coming March 2011 I will be presenting about using the Maven Android Plugin and associated tools from setup to publishing your application on the market as well as running continuous integration servers and working with instrumentation tests and related toolkits probably showcasing Robotium as well as RoboElectric.

It would be great if you could join me there as well as let me know if there is any specific topics in this context that you would like to see discussed.

I am also contemplating organizing some sort of Maven Android Plugin or even a more generic build tool related BOF or so. Would you be interested in something like that? If so let me know here or on the Maven Android Developers mailing list.

I look forward to meet you in San Francisco.
