Just posted to Styling Android: Prism Fundamentals - Part 3

Although additional features are on indefinite hold, I decided to continue publishing this series of articles as they document existing functionality within Prism. In this article we look at how to hook Prism up to a change colours based upon the Palette support library..

I'm a Berliner so I heard about the problems with the new Berlin Airport but it takes Bloomberg to give me an understanding of the magnitude of fuckups the airport management and our politicians created here. This is a must read, esp. the part about the 800 low paid workers with a special task. Seriously, #WTF?

I never really trusted +OnePlus​ and now I see I was right. The OP2 is a joke and they know it. They just don't want anyone to know.

If haven't read the editorial yet mentioned in the post below you should do it now.
 
Not entirely unexpected, but still a bit surprising. +OnePlus just broke up with us over +David Ruddock's editorial.

No more review units, no invite giveaways that I promised you guys, and likely no further communication (though I hope they at least respond to technical questions).

I'm glad respecting editorial integrity and reception to criticism is high on their list of values. But remembering that part about respect at the end of http://andp.lc/1h9bXjO title, I shouldn't be surprised.

Auto Backup for Apps made really simple

With the Android M release all apps targeting the newest SDK version are getting automatic, full-data backups by default. It’s essential that developers make sure their apps behave correctly with this change.

Check out our blog post below for details on migrating from an existing BackupAgent, best practices for managing what data gets included in a backup and making automatic backup and restore a truly delightful moment for your users.

100 days of Google Dev, Episode 59/100

PNG files represent the bulk of android image content, especially if you’ve got a lot of UI elements in your application (rather than photo data). But PNG files also represent a huge problem in terms of file size; They are easy to bloat, and too often, we don’t give them enough attention to make them smaller.

In this video +Colt McAnlis, explains that taking a hard look at your PNG files can make faster to download, and easier to distribute.

Android Studio 1.3 is out [1] and I know what I'll be be trying out now. Hopefully this solves the problems around the test environment switcher (an IDE limitation) while not creating new ones.

Story
Tagline
Software developer, community manager and geek living in Berlin, Germany.
Introduction
Hi,
I'm Stefan. I'm a software developer so this means I sit in front of the computer the whole day and besides checking all my mail accounts and social media networks I produce software bits which don't work at the first try. Mostly they do after the second or third try.

Besides the work I'm into bringing people together - work wise. I know a lot of people with different talents. So just ask me if you're having a particular problem.

Furthermore I really like to build communities. I'm a co-organizer for GDG Berlin, Berlin Hack and Tell and the Instant Startup Show Berlin. Also I help plan other stuff occasionally. If you think you need assistance on planning developer related events you can contact me as well. I'd really like to help out.

Since the end of 2011 I'm the official German Ambassador to Germany for Geekli.st, an achievement-based social portfolio builder where all bad-ass code monkeys around the globe can be found.

In early 2012 I started contracting for Google to help grow and organize the Developer Programs in the German speaking countries (DE, AT, CH). Talk to me if you want to partner up with Google in this region - I'll try my best to help you.

Also in 2012 I co-founded an initiative called OpenTechSchool which organizes programming workshops and related topics to bring people into tech. We do it such a manner to lower the entry barrier people (often women) perceive in the tech scene. Small groups, calm and helpful coaches, all volunteers from the local community help to create an inviting learning atmosphere. Check it out!

Cheers from Berlin,
Stefan

PS: Wow, you really read all that? Kudos!

Food was OK (not better) but the noisy room and especially the horrible service made for a bad experience. Wouldn't recommend it if you find other options around.

Attentive and friendly staff, nice atmosphere, fair prices and not to forget great food. One of the best places around - and we tried quite a few.

It's a very nice cafe with a daily menu for lunch and very delicious breakfast offers. You can go there all day but it tends to be crowded on the weekends and summer evenings. The service is very nice and they offer a free Wifi for customers.
