If you're in Berlin...
EyeEm and Wooga are happy to invite you to an introduction about Google Firebase. Firebase is Google’s unified app platform for Android, iOS and mobile web development. As a Backend-as-a-service (BaaS) it helps developers to build apps faster, improve quality, acquire and engage new users and monetize apps. Tim Messerschmidt, Program Manager at Google Germany will introduce you to what’s possible with Firebase and most importantly address all...

Unfortunately it looks like Elbee is not going to fund its kickstarter.
Enjoy high-quality sound and the possibility to control your smartphone and apps using custom voice commands and head movements.

The concept and solutions they had found was quite interesting and made a lot of sense. They were not designed to wear all the time and could charge automatically in their case, which could have lasted the whole day, or a few days ... I think they had a pretty solid concept. I'm sad they didn't make it.

Some bugs we ran into during our (Polymer Summit) codelabs at #devfestbe :
https://github.com/PolymerElements/paper-item/issues/28
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/24608577/chrome-dev-editors-sample-polymer-app-displays-blank-window
Furthermore, there seems to be some mix-up with main.js and app.js in the firebase codelab: there's app.firebaseURL and this.firebaseURL. Same with updateItems.
Hello, I'm not sure if the problem is about paper-item or paper-input, but if I use a paper-input inside a paper-icon-item the input doesn't accept space character. It's a new problem, from the las...

Can't say; missing the overview. They share these spaces through physical web beacons though which is cute.

We still have 4 spots left at our next GDG meetup. Join us in Brussels.
We all get our Android apps to build (I presume, or you would not be reading this). But what are some advanced topics surrounding compilation and configuration? Agenda: • Distributing to a public or private Maven repository - Jeroen Mols • Gradle, in the lair of the beast - Benjamin Monjoie • The Jack and Jill build system - Eric Lafortune Demos: • Continuous Distribution of the GDG app on Travis - Friedger Müffke

The first I/O where you can conveniently park your car!
 
Exciting news: we’re only 18 weeks away from Google I/O! To celebrate the 10th anniversary of developer gatherings, Google will be hosting I/O in their backyard at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA from May 18th - 20th. There will be 3 full days together to dive deep into developer content, code labs, and more.

I once walked all the way from Mountain View center to Google HQ. In my European mindset I assumed zebra crossings across the big roads and pavements in the residential zones, but if I recall correctly, I came up short :-D.

Waaah Google. This is just what I needed: being able to convert my full-size photos to free-storage-size photos. They should be under the new limit sizes anyway, but like many others I was experiencing the issue that they were still being counted towards my premium storage. And my premium storage was about to expire.

Now I just hope, when released, it solves this bug and I will be able to reduce my premium storage a lot.
 
We have two features that will begin rolling out on Android today:

Helping users free up storage space on their Android device:
On the Settings screen, users will now see a “Free Up Space” button. Clicking on the button will prompt the user to bulk-delete copies of photos that have already been backed up from their device. To prevent device copies from being accidentally deleted, we’re asking users to double-confirm their intent during the ‘Free Up Space’ flow.

Users who are backing up their photos in High quality may now also receive an Assistant card prompting them to bulk delete device copies when they’re nearing the storage limit on their devices (currently only users who are backing up at Original quality receive these cards).

Deleting photos from SD-card enabled devices
We’re rolling out a fix that will allow users on certain SD-card enabled devices to delete photos stored on an SD card. This should prevent the issue of a photo continuing to show up in the Photos view despite being deleted, a frustrating experience for users.

We have one feature that will begin rolling out on the Web on Wednesday:

Downgrade previously uploaded photos from “Original quality” to “High quality”
When users choose to backup their photos and videos to Google Photos, we allow photos to be uploaded in two ways:
“Original quality” (large file, full resolution). These photos count against a user’s Google storage quota.
“High quality” (smaller file, compressed file). These photos don’t count against a user’s Google storage quota.

If a user joined Google Photos and selected the “Original quality’ setting for their photos, but changed their mind, they could have future media backed up in “High quality”. However, for media already backed up in “Original quality” before then, users were in an awkward state: they had no way to downgrade that media to “High quality”.

With this update, users will be able to downgrade previously backed up photos from “Original quality” to “High quality” by visiting photos.google.com/settings from their computer and clicking ‘Recover Storage’.

Win a FREE Elbee and be the first to use smart wireless headphones. Say goodbye to tangled up wires and use voice commands or head movements to control your phone and to manage apps intuitively.
