Great Android Performance workshop from  +Chet Haase  and     +Romain Guy   DEVOXX 2013. These talks are great to get a grab-bag overview of a bunch of performance topics in a short amount of time.

Watched the talk. That was really nice, esp. the systrace demo. There's one topic that wasn't touched though, and I don't remember seeing any videos on that: clipPath. Actually I'm going to write a question about that in the group right now.

It's very rare that I share book recommendations publicly, but this book is worth a shout out. This book presents a great, information theory driven analysis of sorting algorithms. Which is awesome, because it's one of the first groupings I've seen on the subject.
So, if you're onto that sort of thing, this is an awesome book for it.

+Karl Heimann​ you become more awesome at understanding the logic theory behind sorting algorithms. You can use that knowledge however you like.

Nice (handrawn) video explaining the MEASURE phase of the rendering pipeline, and why it can cause perf problems

On a side note, this guy's handwriting is way better than mine...

BABBQ CALL FOR SPEAKERS NOW OPEN!
If you've got a hunger to cook up some awesome talks for the BABBQ this year, it's time to submit your talks!
So much more than a Developer Conference, The Big Android BBQ is a grassroots, community-driven celebration of Android that is equal parts education, entertainment, and altruism.

Hope this is good. Normally their talks is just for show. You never really learn anything, they just throw out things and confuse. Your talks on the contrary are precise and try actually to teach.

The chocolates here are amazing! We stop by at least once a week, and the owners are always kind and engaging with my kids. I can't recommend this place enough!
