Be afraid. Be very afraid.
 
"""So what happens when we fall out the EU at the end of the Article 50 process?

It's Year Zero. We will have no trade deals, no financial arrangements with the EU or anyone else. We're like a man being thrown out of a plane into the sea with no lifejacket. Seriously. I'm not making this up. It's scary."""

Introducing Project Bloks: making code physical for kids

When we were kids, physical things like toys and blocks helped us learn—inspiring curiosity and imagination in a fun, playful way. Today, we’re announcing Project Bloks. Its goal is to create an open hardware platform for tangible programming experiences to help kids develop computational thinking through physical play. Learn more on the Research at Google blog, linked below, and at g.co/projectbloks

Know your Espresso. Thanks to +Wojtek Kaliciński​ it's now easier than ever.
 
1) find a view 2) perform an action 3) verify result. Learn the basic structure of an Espresso UI test in Android Testing Patterns, episode 2.

The country I live in is voting whether they want to leave the European Union. This is widely considered a bad move. Unfortunately the odds of this happening are quite high. So here's an expat Brit telling you why the UK will be better off staying with the EU.

The concept of having, people without the notion of the impact of a decision like this voting for it... scares me. In some way, the same of what is happening with the USA election.

UPDATE: I did the mistake of reading the comments...
