#androiddev
The new Runtime Permissions introduced in Android Marshmallow is a great addition to the platform. However, if your app is targeting SDK version 23 and you have Espresso Tests, it could create some complications. Likely, your current Espresso tests assume that all permissions have been granted ...

Educators want to teach programming to make a generation of coders, but even non-coders can benefit from learning computational thought.

Why I'm focusing on Android over prototyping tools right now
http://www.dadapixel.com/blog/2016/3/28/why-im-investing-time-in-learning-android-rather-than-prototyping-tools

I've mentioned here and there that I'm trying to learn Android, and while I've played with various prototyping tools, I'm putting my focus there right now, for a few reasons, explained in this brief ramble.

Optimizations to reduce the size of the bytecode and optimize its layout on disk helped achieve up to 30 percent faster startup times.

You really can't go wrong with +Wolfram Rittmeyer's tutorials; he's very thorough. This was also the first tutorial to pop up when I was looking up the Calendar Content Provider, which is awesome.

Introducing rxlint: an Android lint check for RxJava code

When working with RxJava on Android one common error is forgetting to handle onError(). When onError() isn't handled RxJava throws an OnErrorNotImplementedException at runtime, and if this happens on a background thread, there's really no way you can debug that situation. TL;DR: handle onError. The rxlint rule for Android lint is hopefully going to help you with this: it flags code that isn't handling onError.

I hope this check also helps you catching these pesky errors! Check out the blog post for more info.
