Jeff Linwood is an experienced author who has worked on many iOS and Android apps that use maps or location functionality. He's also taught and mentored college student application teams as they develop their first apps. In teaching, he noticed a lack of good sample applications and tutorials for map and location applications. He'd like to create the definitive book for developers creating these types of apps.
