Well, I was certainly surprised by the surprise in the box (not going to spoil it).

I will be speaking at +Droidcon NYC about making "floating" Views.  There's more to it than addView on the WindowManager.  Come to learn!

I posted an article over the weekend on the updates to System UI Tuner in the latest #AndroidM  preview, and how you can take advantage of them to tweak the status bar.

Hopefully these features will remain (in some capacity) in the final release!

h/t to +Jake Wharton for giving me the idea.

The git people had their official 10-year anniversary earlier in the year, but today is another anniversary for the project.

Today is exactly ten years since I asked +Junio C Hamano to be the +Git maintainer. And what a maintainer he has been.

I wondered when this would happen, but this is the first detail I've seen.  Minecraft... 2.0?  A non-java re-write that is specifically for Windows 10.

I enjoy it, and my kid, like every other kid, absolutely loves it.  The biggest win here is not having to install Java on his computer anymore.  The downside is that servers and all of his friends need to migrate to this in order to actually make it useful.  And the modding community will lose its mind.
Hello! We have exciting news to share! A whole new version of Minecraft is on its way. This time, it’s for Windows 10 – Microsoft’s new swanky operating system that’s due for release on July 29th. We’re calling it Minecraft: […]

After the rain comes sunshine. I love taking photos during the few minutes or hours after a rain storm has passed. The diffuse light is so soft it gives photos an almost surreal look. This photo was taken in Monument Valley at such a time. You can see the rain moving away in the distance.

The view holder pattern is the most prevalent example of premature optimization in Android that I have seen.
If your view hierarchy is so complex and deep that saving yourself from calling findViewById on every reused view has a large performance impact, your hierarchy is almost certainly poorly constructed.
Only after you have you have made all other decisions and optimizations to your views should you be making the small optimization that the view holder pattern provides.

Lost order. Took over 30 minutes to get it after asking about it. Pretty good food, but not worth the wait and poor experience.
