Good summary of my talk with +Tor Norbye and +Jamal Eason 
by Mario Zechner | 30 May 2015 | Uncategorized | 0 comments. Every year we look forward to all the nice I/O talks on YouTube regarding Android. However, watching these recordings can be quite time consuming. Here's a textual summary of what's new in the Android Development Tools (talk video) ...

Google I/O is here! If you're interested in Android developer tools, I hope you'll tune in to our "What's New In Android Developer Tools" talk this afternoon (2pm Pacific time). It will be live streamed (and I'm hoping there will be a direct link on the below page when the time comes; if not, use the IO Sched App.)  +Xavier Ducrohet, +Jamal Eason and I will show what the team has been working on recently and discuss what's coming up next.

Before the main event, we've also arranged to have a warm-up act, +Chet Haase and +Dan Sandler who'll be covering "What's New In Android" in the same room and on the same live channel, right before us; you don't want to miss that one! (I'm worried they're going to outshine us.)

https://events.google.com/io2015/schedule?filters=Live%20streamed&sid=0c718f8b-b6d4-e411-b87f-00155d5066d7#day1/0c718f8b-b6d4-e411-b87f-00155d5066d7
#googleio2015   #androiddev  
In this session we will provide an in depth tour of the Android development tools and take a closer look at everything new - along with tips and tricks for getting the most out of them! (Note: Tune into this live stream on CHANNEL 1.)

This is an amazingly well-done "how it's made" video, all about the process by which aluminum beverage cans get built. These cans are so common that we rarely look at them, but they're a marvel of engineering: to save material (important, when you're making hundreds of billions a year!) they're made almost as thin as paper, and when they're empty, they easily crumple to save space while recycling. Yet when full, they can support 6 atmospheres of pressure inside and are sturdy enough to stand on -- and it only takes a single pull of a tab to change one into the other.

+engineerguy does a fantastic job of explaining the whole story, with everything from example parts to animations that show exactly how the subtle steps work.

h/t +Jordan Peacock for finding this!

Quick intro to the Android M Preview for Java developers by my colleague +Rich Hyndman.

If you rather fancy writing your apps in C#, you're in luck - +Xamarin have just released support for the Android M Preview: http://blog.xamarin.com/android-m-preview-now-available/

A preview for the preview, if you will. #weneedtogodeeper

My favourite cuppa is "Ostfriesentee". Here's how to prepare it:
1) Put loose tea leaves in the tea pot
2) Pour boiling hot water over the leaves, just about covering them
3) Put the tea pot on a tea warmer and wait for 2 minutes
4) Add more boiling water to the tea pot, put back on the tea warmer and wait for another 2 minutes
5) Put a piece of "Kluntje" sugar (white rock candy) in a tea cup
6) Pour just enough of the tea through a tea sieve over the sugar cube to cover it. Enjoy the crackling sound of the sugar cube.
7) Using a special cream spoon, add one of two spoons of cream to the tea. Done properly, this will result in a cloud of cream in the tea cup
8) Do not stir!

When drinking the tea, you will now first experience the bitter taste of the tea itself, then the softer taste of the tea that has blended with the cream , and finally the sweet taste of the sugar.

It certainly does take time to enjoy your tea this way, but once you've experienced the complexity of the taste, you'll always come back to it.

Here is funny video that illustrates how to produce the cream clouds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKBb2EyyXpk and here is the full ceremony: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQitqaJmEr8

Great store with lots of desks to explore all the products. Very friendly and helpful staff. The only downside: you cannot schedule Genius Bar appointments for multiple devices at once.
