A very impressive feat. With so many locations to place a piece on the board as well as very limited rules on placement, it's been a hard task to build Go AI that can play at a masters level. To understand why this is so important I'd reccomend reading http://www.wired.com/2014/05/the-world-of-computer-go/ to put it in scope.

Good news, everyone. Tomorrow you'll be making a delivery to Ebola 9, the virus planet.

Oh, wait, wrong group... You guys are developers.... Well I still have good news for everyone. On January 27th (@ 6:30 PM) we will be hosting our 3rd Meteor Meetup, as well as kicking off our first  Google Developer Group meetup.

Our focus will be based on mapping, which will essentially be us building a Meteor app that queries through a database of restaurants and find the highest rated and closest restaurants to where we are. We while Meteor is our primary platform, Mongo and Google Maps will be doing the most work for us for querying restaurants, displaying them on a map, and getting directions to them.

This should be fun, and we look forward to seeing you all on the 27th!

Hey +Philip DeFranco, I know this video is a little bit different with you traveling around and recording in different places. But honestly, I kind of liked it. The different scenes for different stories added something cool to the show.

I hope you consider doing more episodes like this.

G+ Questions - Mobile  - 
 
So after recently merging my Google Drive photos and Google+ Photos together my AutoBackup hasn't been functioning quite right...

I usually have my photos set to upload at "Standard Size" (2048x2048) so as to not chip away at my Google Storage. However now that I have my Google Photos in Google Drive (and vice versa) my photos are being AutoBackup(ed) at their full size.

I will add to this though that once I disconnect, and then disable and re-enable AutoBackup uploads are finally back to their "Standard Size."

Thoughts are always appreciated, but I think this may be something on Google's servers/app that needs to be taken care of.

Do you have an android phone? 
if so
Something that seems to have worked for a few people is this.

Go to your device settings
go to Applications
Go to All
Find the Google+ App
uninstall all updates for the google+ app
clear app data (this doesn't delete any photos, it just resets your settings)

Go to the play store
go to my apps
update your apps from the play store

go to your device settings
scroll to account
tap into google
tap into your email address
ensure all boxes are checked, so that sync is on for that item
especially the Google+, Google+ Photos, and Google+ Uploads
(Google Photos can be left off as it syncs your Picasa images to your gallery app)

Ensure sync is on for the whole device
Go to your device Settings
Go to Data Usage(this has moved to Accounts in Android v5+)
Tap the menu button
Check Auto-sync data
(depending on your device you may have a quick switch in your notifications drop down panel)

it should work as per normal now.
go to google+ app 
log into app
ensure settings are to your requirements

go to the Photos app
go to the left side menu
go to On Device
if the Autobackup Cloud icon is highlighted blue tap it to switch it off for a particular folder that you don't want to be backed up. 

This is optional
go back to the Google+ app
From the settings go to the autobackup settings
select the option to backup all photos now 
do not dismiss the notification for it. 

Do all the steps described you don't have to do the optional one, but please ensure that you do the steps in that order

This is wonderful - #Voxel #CSS - makes 3D super easy, check out the demo and the source code examples, thinking up lots of ideas to use this! Being CSS its GPU accelerated, you can use all your normal image types with ease, and click on any element (side) with ease too. Minecraft in the browser? I wonder how many voxels one can render before it gets slow? Let me know if you find out with your machine spec. http://www.voxelcss.com/

Getting ready for a Study Jam!
 
Today's #AndroidDev #Protip on text appearance and theme attributes is by +Katherine Kuan, the newest member of Android Developer Relations (welcome, Katherine!)

When choosing font sizes for your app, using too many different sizes can be visually distracting and confuse the user as to what information is important. To be consistent with other apps on the platform, you can use the standard set of type sizes provided by the framework: small, medium, or large.

To use a standard text size (and color), instead of setting the TextView's android:textSize directly, set the android:textAppearance to a predefined theme attribute [1] such as android:textAppearanceLarge:

<TextView
    …
    android:textAppearance="?android:textAppearanceLarge" />

As of API 19 (KitKat):
?android:textAppearanceSmall is currently 14sp
?android:textAppearanceMedium is currently 18sp
?android:textAppearanceLarge is currently 22sp

These default sizes and concepts are also documented in the "Typographic scale" section of the Android Design guide [2].

Note that setting the text appearance will also affect the default values for text color attributes such as android:textColor and android:textColorHint. You can always override the default values by providing those attributes directly on the TextView element:

<TextView
    ...
    android:textAppearance="?android:textAppearanceLarge"
    android:textColor="@color/my_own_color"
    android:textColorLink="@color/my_own_link_color"/>

Also note that you don't necessarily have to use the system default appearances. You can create your own set of type sizes and colors that fits your desired visual design. For information on creating your own theme attributes, see the #Protip we posted on the topic back in October [3].

Lastly, if you want to check out the definition of these standard text appearances in the framework code, look for "textAppearanceLarge" in the Theme.Holo (or Theme.Holo.Light) definition in themes.xml [4]. The attribute values will be style resources (such as TextAppearance.Holo.Large), for which you can find definitions  in styles.xml [5]. In the example above, note that TextAppearance.Holo.Large inherits from TextAppearance.Large, which in turn inherits from the standard TextAppearance style.

Hey +T-Mobile! Mobile to landline rates to Azerbaijan with Stateside International seem a little wonky. Is that right or just a mistake on the site?

Introduction
As a Web Developer, I have a great deal of passion for technology and software development. My passion is a mix of either programming or familiarizing myself with new products and services. This general passion and interest has allowed me to develop an intricate knowledge of various technologies, including their purpose and how they work. However, while I enjoy their many benefits, I am also able to look at the products with a critical eye. Above and beyond anything though, I am interested in contributing my experience in the software development as well as being granted the opportunity to work with some of the best and the brightest.
