+Nicolas Roard recently wrote part 1 of a series of articles about the architecture of Android's old WebView. It's well worth your time if you've ever wondered how web pages are/can be rendered in modern web browsers.
 
Just published: Part I of an overview of the old android webview architecture, mostly describing the move from software rendering to the hardware accelerated pipeline.

Giants
Monument Valley, Utah

After the rain comes sunshine. I love taking photos during the few minutes or hours after a rain storm has passed. The diffuse light is so soft it gives photos an almost surreal look. This photo was taken in Monument Valley at such a time. You can see the rain moving away in the distance.

Healing brush implementation in Renderscript

If you are an #Android  developer you might be interested in this new Renderscript demo available in AOSP:

https://android.googlesource.com/platform/frameworks/rs/+/master/java/tests/HealingBrush/

It shows how to implement a healing brush (an image editing tool found in apps like Photoshop, Pixelmator, Affinity Photo, etc.) using Renderscript. The video below shows the demo application in action.

Gradient Valley
Monument Valley, Utah

Here is another shot from that amazing sunset over Monument Valley. The full-size 50 Mpix (well, slightly less since it's a 16:9 crop) is available on my Flickr account.

Fog Valley
Monument Valley, Utah

Monument Valley offered us a stunning display last week as a storm moved over the valley and its majestic mesas and buttes. It was incredible to see blue sky, fog, rain, sunset and thunder in the same panorama. This photo is one of the many shots I took that evening and shows a closeup of the public entrance bathed in fog and sunset light.

This photo is also one of my first photos taken with a brand new Canon 5DSR and its 50 megapixels sensor. You can see the full resolution version on Flickr (https://www.flickr.com/photos/romainguy/19489500310/).

Here is a great presentation that all Android developers should watch. As always with performance, it's what you know that counts. Don't always apply rules blindly but understand the cost of everything you do.
 
I have posted slides from my talk "Eliminating Code Overhead" which I gave yesterday at Square.

By themselves, these slides are sparse on any explanation or reasoning for what's on them. The event was recorded and a video of me blabbering over them will be made available later.

The CPU, RAM, and disk are finite resources that are often taken for granted as unbounded. Not only is this obviously untrue, but the use of these resources directly affects the most important resource on a mobile device: the battery. This talk will focus on techniques that both libraries and applications can implement to ensure their effect is in general without overhead.
