Good UIs always give users an option for backing out of undesired states. Sometimes many options.

Not to be too much of an ass about it, but with the exception of yes/no not needing to be their own buttons, clear and cancel are two unique operations. I mean, you calculator has a "C/CE" and "AC" button.

I love the syntax around my name in this conference invitation. It's like a more formal and prettified way of [Chet], or that my name here is optional/implied. Or maybe they wanted to say "Chet" but couldn't find the right keys on their keyboard, thinking that my name must actually be some kind of nickname, because who in their right mind would name their kid Chet {right?}

My reply:

{Thanks} for the "invitation," but I have other {better} things to "do".

{Sincerely},
"Chet"

I actually supplied a title for my talk, so it wouldn't sound so generic.
On the other hand, the title was, "Something About Android," so this probably works just as well.

+Robert Cooper I think that's a typo - they meant "minty," presumably in reference to my habit of chewing car fresheners.

Devoxx is one of my favorite developer conferences, with a wide variety of deep technical talks on web, server, mobile, languages, practices, and sometimes a comedy talk.

The only downside for me is that I have to travel so far to get there. So I'm looking forward to seeing it come to my neighborhood next year.

Looks like it headlines Eclipse. You still use Eclipse?

If you're in SF this evening, you can catch me hosting the Crowdsourced open mic at Speechless, starting at 6:30 (and then catch the main show after that. It's like a 2-for-1 deal!

You can also be in that Crowdsourced show - see the details on the ticket sit.

WHEN: 6/16 - Doors at 6 // Open mic at 6:30 (upstairs) // Main show at 7:30 (downstairs) You’ve seen presentations all of your life. But none like this. Speechless is a live show/corporate training phenomenon that puts presenters on stage to deliver a PowerPoint presentation without any knowledge of the slides or decks. Watch your favorite tech industry gods and comedians turn improvised presentations into a competitive showdown! Each pres...

This was a fun episode/conversation with some of the folks from the System UI team. Jorim, Selim, and Adrian have been hard at work on recent releases making some of the user interaction/animation pieces in System UI better/smoother/cooler, so we picked their brains about how some of that stuff works.

Note about the title: They are all from Zurich. As in Swizterland. And their on the System UI Team. So, Swisstem UI. Get it?
I was pushing for "Swissteam UI," but that version didn't play well during test marketing (I had to explain to +Tor Norbye why it was funny). Software is easy - wordplay is difficult.
 
Android Developers Backstage Episode 51: Swisstem UI.

In this episode, +Chet Haase and +Tor Norbye talk with +Jorim Jaggi , +Selim Cinek  and +Adrian Roos from the System UI team about all the "math-gic" behind the animations in Lollipop, Marshmallow and N.

Favorite quote: "Hopefully works correctly".

Nice, small article about Data Binding by +George Mount, one of the engineers behind, er, Data Binding.

We'd heard people talking about using Butter Knife specifically because they found the findViewById() method tedious. George and +yiğit boyar pointed out that it's really easy to use Data Binding for the same purpose. So here's an article about how to do that.

Story
Tagline
Graphics geek, comedy nerd
Introduction
I'm a software geek, working at Google, making Android graphics and animation more excellent. In previous lives I've worked at Sun on the JDK, at Adobe on Flex, and various other places in Silicon Valley, always working on graphics software.

In my copious spare time, I write. I write humor on my blog Enough About You... along with my G+ stream at google.com/+ChetHaase and on Twitter via @chethaase. I also occasionally post technical articles on CodeDependent. I co-wrote the book Filthy Rich Clients with Romain Guy, wrote another programming book Flex 4 Fun about Flex graphics and animation, and wrote humor books Round and HolyWhen I am King.... and the long-anticipated sequel, When I am King... II. Like women and childbirth, I eventually forget the pain of the process of writing a book, and will probably make the mistake of writing another one eventually. As soon as the scars from the last one heal.

I also have developed a strange and disturbing attraction to the microphone. Any microphone. You may find me giving a technical talk at a developer conference or user group, or doing some standup or improv in a comedy show. I've also been seen in videos ("You may know me from such hits as DevBytes..."), either work-related or posted on my comedy blog and YouTube channel.

None of what I write in my blogs, on Google+, or anywhere else has anything to do with my employer; they're just my thoughts, my jokes, my mistakes.

4, no 5, books published so far. If I lose my mind, I may write more.
