#androiddev Today I've learned something about Androids ValueAnimator and therefor ObjectAnimator and TimeAnimator .

Let's say you have an Objectanimator from 0 to 360 and back to 0. 

Objectanimator.ofInt(this, "something", 0, 360, 0)

Now you make it repeate this Animator for all eternity because this is your indeterminate custom progress Crawable. So far everything is fine and works great.

Now lets say you want to spice up things in your animation and change a color every time your animation hits 0. Works great.

BUT guess what happens when you hit power saving mode or set the duration settings in the developer menu zu 0?

Your anmiation duration is set to 0 and you don't even know and your nice animation becomes a color flickering mess! 

Ok let's work around that and just get the scale factor and see if it's bigger then 0 and decide if we even want to start an animation if the user doesn't want to see one... Well.. shit..@hide doesn't let you.

In the end you have to get the value via Reflection and hope nobody changes the method name over time.

I wonder why +Chet Haase​ decided that getting this value was worth hideing?

Last week we published a small but important sample for Espresso Intents on GitHub. It shows you how to fake an ActivityResult to keep your test hermetic, stubbing an Intent and simulating that a picture is fetched from the camera without leaving the main app.

We prefer short, focused UI tests to long end-to-end or flow tests. Espresso Intents lets you stay in your Activity and focus on your code. 

Take a look:

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

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.
