"Personally it just seems odd that the site claims to be a training and development community but outside of the actual classes that Uki puts on there there is no training or development going on. Thats not to say the classes aren't good. I…"

MVP Android Perspective

While recently reading some information Google had posted on the MVP design pattern I got curious about how it would look like in real code.
