These are some of the comments / messages people have sent to me. This problem is not unique to me. But consider if someone doesn't respond to you or reach out, it's because this is what they've experienced in the past. No one owes you anything, and you don't have a right to anyone's attention. Just because this isn't YOUR experience doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

A cool look at what scientists actually do.
What do you see when you picture a scientist? Is it a white man in a lab coat? This portrait will smash that stereotype …

Hacking on layout code

I've been spending a lot of time hacking on layout code at Facebook lately. Most performance wins in layout code can come from very simple changes in the code. They're fairly easy to spot with the right mindset. Here are some very general tips when working on layout code.

Understand the layout system Changing layout code without understanding at least its core features is a recipe for messy/cryptic layout code. Spend enough time reading the code (and specs, if any) so that you can be more deliberate about your changes.

Everything is a loop Layout code is iterative by nature. You should see every line of layout code as an operation that will be executed over and over again in a tight loop or recursion. A single costly operation can lead to bad systemic performance that is pretty hard to track down. Keep that in mind.

Inline heavily Generally speaking, layout code should follow two steps: first, fetch all necessary layout data from children; second, calculate position and size of all elements. Most of the data collection should happen outside iterative blocks in the algorithm if possible—especially when it involves method invocations and non-trivial data structures. This is especially relevant on Android. I've recently made a layout algorithm 50% faster by simply inlining/avoiding a bunch of method invocations in tight loops. Android's method profiler is your friend here.

Cheat Not all features in a layout system are created equal. Some are used more often than others. Look for shortcuts to optimize for the simplest and most common features.

Happy hacking!

"In the beginning there was nothing. And a test was written."

No, that's not how test-driven development works. In this #AndroidDialogs +Corey Leigh Latislaw talks about how she uses TDD with Robolectric to write code faster and how you can get started using her Android Katas course.

Loved the predominantly geeky and coffee shop vibe. Friendly staff. I didn't feel out of place in the comic book side. Normally at a comic store I get weird stares and have my geek credentials heavily questioned. Thanks for making the place welcoming!

Delicious pub fare with beautiful presentation. Great Norwegian imperial Porter. Sat in the library by the window. Quiet for an early dinner around 4PM.

Like to sketch, work, or just enjoy coffee. There's a high bar along the front window that I like to use as a standing desk.

We love to shop here! We're fond of the focus on locally sourced produce and items. We are always warmly welcomed and often chat with the owners. We get tons of veggies and fruit from our CSA and supplement by buying stuff here like butter, cheese, coffee, 25lbs bags of sugar, and eggs.
