I've released the first version of Aeon, which is an object-relational mapper for #Android . It provides an object-oriented interface to the relational structure of #SQLite .

Aeon generates code at compile-time for inserting, updating, deleting and querying for objects stored in a SQLite database. For performance reasons it only uses generated code and does not rely on reflection.

My employer is looking for talented Android developers. If you're interested (or know someone who might be interested) in working in an agile environment at a startup-like company backed by a big corporation let me know! :) The position is in Cologne.

Ist mir leider auch aufgefallen. Anstatt das Android 5.x Lollipop wie versprochen die Akkulaufzeit verbessert, ist sie deutlich schlechter geworden.

Couldn't have put it more eloquently.
If you presume a God that created the Universe exists, what do you get? A Monster.
Barbaric, sadistic and utterly contemptible.

Based on this post (https://plus.google.com/+JakeWharton/posts/6f5TcVPRZij) by +Jake Wharton and its interesting and useful comments, I've created an Android/Gradle build configuration with a "release" task which increments the application's versionCode stored in a properties file and commits the change.

This is for instance useful for CI servers building and deploying alpha/beta builds of an application where it's crucial that the versionCode changes/increases. However you might not want to use a (fragile) solution based on the UNIX timestamp or the build number provided by a CI server.

The code can be found at https://github.com/svenjacobs/android-gradle-release-example

Using Project Kotlin for Android

I've been watching and playing with Kotlin for about two years now. It's gotten to the point where I think it's really viable for Android app development. I decided to take a few nights and dig into a bunch of details about the language and why it's a good candidate.

This is a slightly modified copy of a document I presented internally at Square. We're not going to turn around and write everything in Kotlin. That wouldn't make sense. This was a sell on the language, features, and its implementation such that we can start experimenting.

Since I'm not interested in hearing people yell things that I already know about their favorite non-Java languages, comments are off and closed on this post. I've used Groovy and Scala a bunch, but thanks. I haven't used Xtend or Ceylon at all (hence their omission). If you're interested in discussing those, make your own post.

The video recording for Dependency Injection with Dagger 2 is now available to watch for $FREE.

Unlike my talk on Dagger 1 last year, this is not tailored towards Android. It covers dependency injection as a pattern, how to use Dagger 2, and a peek under the hood at how Dagger 2 fulfills the dependency injection contract.

As always, I try to move through at a moderate pace with high information density under the assumption that you could re-watch. And now you can!

I'm also looking forward to a future where all cars on the street are driving autonomously. Just image no more traffic jams because of course the cars communicate and choose alternative routes automatically.

Wir waren eine Gruppe von fünf Leuten. Nachdem der Kellner die Bestellung der Getränke und des Essens aufnahm und wir die Getränke auch zügig erhalten hatten, sahen wir den Kellner für den Rest des Abends kaum noch. Die Tische neben uns wurden nach und nach besetzt, jedoch von einer anderen Kellnerin bedient, die uns einfach ignorierte. Unsere Getränke waren mittlerweile leer und die Gäste, die nach uns kamen, bekamen alle schon ihr Essen. Wir mussten 45min auf unsere fünf Burger warten und nach weiteren fünf Minuten haben wir dann auch unsere zweiten Getränke bekommen!!! Zwei Sterne weil das Essen gut geschmeckt hat und das Ambiente ganz schick ist. Der Service hingegen ist unterirdisch!
