Agile development projects are perhaps the best thing to hit for web-based applications since the Internet. Keeping track of them with a distributed team, however, can be a real bugger. Thankfully there's a group of people out there who have overcome the considerable hurdle of distributed agile development. Pivotal Labs, makers of many a web app solution, have graciously provided their project tracking tool to the rest of us. Pivotal Tracker is the best solution to the problem I've seen. While it is hosted, it is free for Open Source project users and the fee for closed source projects isn't prohibitive for most small teams. I've been using it for some work projects and I must say that it is definitely worth the effort of looking into.
I started this blog to chronicle my adventure as a somewhat tech-savvy user of Android-enabled devices. While I might not have the funding of a full-time reviewer, I do have a unique perspective. I'm not paid to write any of this. In other words, these are my experiences, not the experiences of someone paid to have them.
As an end user, I find infinite utility in reading how others have loved or hated various technologies. This is my attempt to give back to that community.
I decided to title the blog "Iron Android" as a play on the novel The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and the Android OS. I see Android as the next big thing in mobile computing.
