Some debugging help for C level Android developers.
 
New documentation about debugging various common kinds of native crash up on source.android.com this week: https://source.android.com/devices/tech/debug/native-crash.html

I actually wrote this to help folks in QA triage app compatibility crashes better, and it seems to have been helpful. The original internal version was based on actual app crashes from bugs.

I've taken on making sourdough bread after a friend gave me some starter. The loafs so far are not yet perfect but damn, are they delicious.

Announcing updates to Google’s Internet of Things platform: Android Things and Weave

Today we are announcing a full range of solutions to make it easier to build secure smart devices and get them connected. We are releasing a Developer Preview of Android Things, an operating system for connected devices that has the support and scale of existing Android developer infrastructure. You can now develop IoT software using Android Studio and the Android SDK. We are also updating the Weave platform to provide an easy way to add cloud connectivity and management to devices, and enable access to Google services like the Google Assistant and many more over time.

Learn more about Google’s IoT platform from our blog post at https://goo.gl/eENGtu, and join our new Google+ community at https://g.co/iotdev.

Ah right, forgot about the feature. Most of my G Suite-Accounts are semi-work anyway. Borders are seamless between private and work.

I'd separated them long time if I hadn't decided to use one of them for everything ages ago. Moving to a more or less virgin account would be a pain in the a**.

I recently saw a question on /r/androiddev asking how to implement a fancy animation… and decided to demonstrate how to do it using AnimatedVectorDrawable.

Here's a breakdown of how I did it: https://medium.com/@crafty/animation-jump-through-861f4f5b3de4

Or you can jump straight to the code here: https://gist.github.com/nickbutcher/97143b3240682e5c5851fe45b49fde93
