An Introduction to Icon Animation Techniques

Week #1: wrote 27 icon animations for Android
Week #2: learned how to animate SVGs using SMIL and CSS
Week #3: learned the basics of Adobe After Effects to create cooler and more advanced icon animation effects
Week #4,5,6: learned JavaScript and ported 19 icon animations from Android to SVG to use as inline blog post demos
Week #7: rewrote and polished a bunch of animations, planned out structure of blog post
Week #8: writing, editting, rewriting, deleting, rewriting again, editting, repeat...

Don't think I have ever worked this much on a single blog post before... but I wouldn't have it any other way. Let me know what you think, and don't forget to share! :D

"OK Google" - this will be interesting

I didn't purchase a Google Home device (or honestly want one), but was given one the GDE summit recently, so figure I might as well try it.

It was super simple to setup (basically it was like a Chromecast for the most part).

My daughter is really intrigued with it, and is asking information about presidents, and playing Mad Libs. Overall, it seems to work well for the limited use cases it supports.

It is early days for this device, there are 2 big issues for me:
- SONOS integration (unfortunately those 2 pictured devices don't talk to each other yet)
- Multiple account support

I found the review by +Phil Nickinson was pretty spot on (and probably a bit more optimistic that feel about the device right now): http://www.androidcentral.com/google-home?utm_content=buffer1ba98
