This tweet got me more excited than I should probably ever be.

Great work from the people at square!
 
LeakCanary looks amazing. Can't wait to try it!
Nobody likes OutOfMemoryError crashes. In Square Register, we draw the customer's signature on a bitmap cache. This bitmap is the size of the device's screen, and we had a significant number of out of memory (OOM) crashes when creating it. We tried a few approaches, none of which solved the ...

Dagger 2 at last!
 
Dagger 2 is out! Here is my demo repo showing how to use it with Espresso 2 and Mockito for testing.

Practicing my Sketch skills by making a Material design launch icon. This is a rework of the launch icon for Box which has a fairly mediocre icon that doesn't have any aspects of material design. This is my first attempt, any thoughts or ideas on how it could be improved?

apart from Material design, icon is not easily understandable.

I would say make it upside down.

Drag and Swipe with RecyclerView

Just published an article about adding drag & drop and swipe-to-dismiss to RecyclerView without using a third-party library. It's a basic introduction to ItemTouchHelper and has a corresponding example project on Github:

Dart on android using a new framework called sky. Aiming to render at 120fps. Early days yet but an interesting project.

Dagger 2 is here.
 
Today, on behalf of the the Dagger team at Google, I announced the the release of Dagger 2!  It's a year-long project that is in use by several critical apps in Google and I'm happy to be able to share it with the world.  Here's the announcement:

"The Dagger team at Google is pleased to announce the release of Dagger 2.  Dagger 2 is a complete rewrite of the successful dependency injection framework for Java and Android that provides a completely compile-time generated implementation of the entire object graph.  By generating code that is normal, non-reflective Java, Dagger 2 provides a solution that is simple, traceable, performant and designed to maximize developer velocity.

Users of Dagger 1 can find an overview of differences between the two versions in the migration guide [1]. New and existing users will find the most useful information in the API documentation [2].

As we iterate on this new approach to dependency injection, we’re excited to get feedback and evolve the project.  Please contribute to our GitHub project, discuss on our Google Group and ask questions on Stack Overflow."

Very useful!
 
Ayo, put together a rough draft of a Product Icon Design Kit for Sketch. There's still a lot more that I'd like to include but it's a start. I'd love feedback on design details and also organization of the file/workspace. Also, if you have any requests for things to include or other resources related to Product Icons, let me know.
