This is a rather insightful summary on the state of Android Auto and Car Play as well as a down to earth assessment on what we need next. What's not addressed is that the car integrations are very similar to all of the IoT talk going around. Everything he's saying about the car needing to work without the phone is true of all the coming IoT devices. This will be a very interesting next 3 years.
If you've bought a car in the last decade, you probably think of "infotainment" as a four-letter word. The touchscreens in the centers of our dashboards have been, to put it bluntly, bad. In some...

Last week at +Big Android BBQ +Ryan Seys and myself lead an in-person codelab that walked you through an example of how to write automated performance tests for an Android App. The approach lets you evaluate and iterate changes to your app before committing them to your code repo. That codelab lives on here and we're continuing to iterate so we'd love to hear your feedback via the link on the last step of the codelab or directly.

Thanks and Happy Friday (or Saturday for some)!!
In this codelab you will create a stable and reusable testing harness to run performance tests on a very simple existing app. The harness will automate the collection information such as systrace logs, location requests, batterystats, graphics profiling, and more. Test failures will also be ...

Pretty good preso on how code at Google is managed. It was quite surprising for me when I joined but it's pretty amazing being able to reference other people's code when you need to understand the internals.
 
This talk gives great insights into the codebase that we use at Google and it's massive scale.

This is extremely promising research. Thanks to all those researchers out there trying to make things better for us!
iONiUM sends news that Mayo Clinic cancer researchers have developed a technique to reprogram cancer cells in a lab, essentially "turning off" their excessive cell growth. That code was unraveled by the discovery that adhesion proteins — the glue that keeps cells together — interact with...

My mind was just blown taking the very first Matchmaker tour at Coppola's vineyards. We tasted wine and food like I normally develop software and I learned so much. All the normal information about wine pairing and food are just that, norms and you can create amazing pairings by breaking them. If you're in the area I suggest you give it a try by reserving via their website. Its very limited in the number of people allowed to take it per weekend.

This is excessive, but for a fraction of a second I tried to figure out a way to justify it. I mean, it brings your beer TO you for goodness sake.

If you have multiple macs in the house the server package allows large updates to be served locally instead of each machine downloading them from Apple. It had a couple other nice features as well to make running a home server effortless.
Apple's $20 server now OS version-independent so you don't have to buy it again.

This is true, but your apps still need to be svelte enough smoothly on a system with 512MB of ram for another year or two. Perhaps far longer with IoT..
Your next flagship phone from Samsung (or another OEM) might have 6GB of RAM inside. I know that you are still wrapping your brain around it having 4GB, but Samsung is ready to move beyond that mark through its first 12Gb LPDDR4 mobile DRAM based on its 20nm process.   It’s new RAM is said …
