And the time is up!

It gives me immense pleasure to announce "Engineering blog" of +Lets Nurture, our very first initiative for the community and of course for our self.

[LetsNurture and Community]
There are two sides of LetsNurture, first one is obviously software services and products development, and another is collaboration with community and support them for the betterment of the community, whether it could be organizing cloth camp in winter, organizing toys camp to collect toys from people and distributing it to the children in slum area and many more such things.

We at LetsNurture have been also providing technical support to the technical community like +GDG Ahmedabad. When we talk about our technical contribution, we are always glad about we have been providing speakers, website development and design resources for their events like DevFest Ahmedabad.

We have also created an android application Bloodmonk, which helps users to not only find names of blood donors in the city on time but also find information on the nearest hospital in less time. Check out the video for more about this initiative!

[Engineering blog, what is this? One more initiative?]
You might know engineers at LetsNurture (you can call us "Nurturers") have been exploring new technologies and have gained expertise, have done innovation using some of the coolest technologies like beacon, NFC, ChromeCast, BLE sensors and have developed something cool out of their innovative ideas.

Now we want to take our contribution to the next level, with that we are introducing this blog where we would be sharing our learning and expertise with community by publishing technical blog posts. We would also be sharing our talks, slides/presentations and materials that we would be delivering and using in conferences/events.

Someone has rightly said “Teach is to learn twice”!

Look forward to see you among our top readers!

Happy New Year, wish you have a rocking year ahead! Today we are happy to share about one of the initiatives that our engineers are excited to take for the …

New year - New game - New initiatives

So I have decided to wear the hoodie of LetsNurture, a company nurturing the world by employing technologies. I have joined as a Technical Lead – Android.

About what I will be doing at LetsNurture, well that's the interesting thing but definitely I would be working upon set of challenges to find out solutions, and of course I would be working upon challenging projects dependent on upcoming and coolest technologies like wear, chrome cast, beacon, etc.

Keep wondering why I have joined LetsNurture and declined some cool offers from other good startups. I would have also appeared for Facebook London for the interview of Software Engineer Android position but it is not the right time for me to relocate!
Take away for those who are looking for exciting job:
In case If you want to explore and building something out of the box things then Join us, we are having openings for Android and iOS developers.

Take away for startups:
Those entrepreneurs who are looking for putting their ideas into the actions by having a solid solution then Lets Nurture is the perfect choice! Do let us know if you even want to get reviews and optimize your apps!

Things are changing at LetsNurture! We have already started working on some of the initiatives, we are almost ready to share about our very first initiative for the year 2016, please wait until official announcement for the same!

[Slides] Engineering Android apps for Performance and Quality

Yesterday I delivered a talk on android best practices/do's/don'ts in GDG DevFest Ahmedabad 2015 event.

https://speakerdeck.com/pareshmayani/engineering-android-apps-for-performance-and-quality

P.S. There are many best practices you can follow for improving your application's quality and performance, but these are the do's, don'ts and best practices I have noted/observed by reviewing applications of start-ups, stackoverflow Q/As, company projects, etc.

And finally our own Founder/Organizer of Google Developers Group Ahmedabad, Paresh Mayani is taking two sessions in DevFest Ahmedabad 2015.

Talk 1: Engineering Android apps for Performance and Quality
Talk 2: Mastering CoordinatorLayout

Talk 1 abstract:
There are thousand of apps being developed and published by thousands of android developers each day but result is frustrating when you do code review, architecture review and check performance. Couple of apps you would find are either developed haphazardly just to achieve the deadline or didn't followed standard practices or such other reasons.

There are best practices which can help android developers to engineer android applications the right way. I will cover some of the best practices like Squeezing gradle files.

He is a frequent speaker at conferences such as Android Developer Days (Droidcon Ankara), DevFest and NitroDroid, on topics ranging from android development best practices, Android BLE.

Achievement unlocked - One more feather in crown :-)

After writing blogs and documents on Android development things, my hungriness for writing a complete book on Android development was getting increased day by day, but couldn't make it possible due to the lack of time!

But Today It gives me immense pleasure to share an achievement about reviewing book "Android Programming for Beginners" published by PACKT publishing, an UK based publishing company. Yeah made an entry directly in the international book having wonderful cover :-) I reviewed total 13 chapters in this book and shared my experience/expertise for the contents of those chapters!

Yes I am not an author but a technical reviewer of this book, but I think it gives me immense pleasure as I am author of this book! Soon after completing the reviewing task, I have decided that one day I will write at least a book!

Here are the links for the book if you're interested:

[New post] Floating Action Button

I got an opportunity to document Floating Action Button on http://materialdoc.com being managed by +Dmytro Danylyk.

Thanks Dmytro for an opportunity!

#AndroidDev  #MaterialDesign
From Google material design documentation: Floating action buttons are used for a promoted action. They are distinguished by a circled icon floating above the UI and have motion behaviors that include morphing, launching, and a transferring anchor point. How to...

#androidDev, If there is something that I really hate is to add over and over again the xml:tools namespace on Android Studio when I create I new layout file.

Code and text inside new files created by the IDE is set by the configuration set at the code templates section on Android Studio: Settings > Editor > File and Code Templates

If you put that namespace in the layoutResourceFile_vertical code template  –default template used when a layout is created– You not have to put it manually anymore.

Never say Good bye, Say see you soon again!

While world is celebrating and enjoying last day of the year 2015, today I enjoyed my farewell at one of the best companies of Ahmedabad and India, yes I am talking about InfoStretch Corporations Pvt. Ltd.

InfoStretch has been a great company where engineers maintain high quality by following coding standards and patterns. Plus company has a quality assurance teams where they test products and assure the quality.

I enjoyed my tenure at InfoStretch and I am happy that I got a chance to work upon a super challenging project, where I was a part of android development using BLE. I have learnt a lot and explored so many new things which you might have observed in my presentation on "Engineering android apps for Performance and Delight" in DevFest Ahmedabad 2015.

But one gentlemen has rightly said "Change is the only Constant"!

Looking forward to my next roller coaster ride starting from tomorrow. Check the next update tomorrow what I am going to do!
