About the Author
Jon-Luke West is a software developer, product engineer, and inventor.
Jon-Luke began his journey in software engineering developing Windows applications and automation tools, even before beginning high school. This was followed by over five years in consumer hardware repair, as well as QA and UX engineering. When the enterprise mobile device market began shifting to Android, Jon-Luke made the change to mobile enterprise solutions and quickly became a go-to engineer on the subject. Embroiled in the evolution of Android as a replacement for Windows CE, he worked closely with device manufacturers to fine tune their Android experience and SDKs. He also worked with Fortune 500 companies in migrating their applications from legacy systems to Android, as well as prototyping solutions using new peripheral devices and technologies. A technologist at heart who enjoys the endless quest for knowledge, Jon-Luke continues to pursue his passion for the mobile world and the possibilities beyond—that is, when he isn't exploring the worlds he and his friends create playing Dungeons & Dragons.
