Most preparations for our summer vacation are done. Tomorrow we start up to Germany's North Sea.

Not the best time for a summer vacation in Germany since the summer seems to be somewhere else. But as an optimist I refuse to take note :-)

Lands of Ruin has arrived! After 3 years of development and multiple complete redesign iterations we are finally launching Lands of Ruin, the next generation tabletop MMO, to public early access!

Lands of Ruin is a skirmish-level post-apocalyptic tabletop miniature game played using a companion Android tablet app (iOS is coming soon!).The hybrid gameplay also introduces novel, previously unseen features to tabletop like AI controlled NPCs and truly asymmetric information between the players. Once learned, a game of Lands of Ruin takes about one hour.

It has been a long road but we’re proud with the results. Lands of Ruin introduces a completely new style of tabletop strategy gaming. The combination of tablet and tabletop game allows us to create a fast paced and realistic gaming experience. Instead of spending weeks to learn, Lands of Ruin does not require complete understanding of all rules before you can start playing the game. The tablet app will calculate all modifiers, distances etc for you. You can concentrate on the game, your strategy and inflicting pain to your enemy’s characters from the first game session. 

To get started you can find a lot of helpful reading here:
http://landsofruin.com/get-started/

You can also download the Lands of Ruin Command Console app for free here:

Just published part 4 - Playing with NavigationView in my exploring android design support library tutorial series.

In this part, I have explored about preparing NavigationView at design time. Also covered how you can add items into the NavigationView programmatically!

I decided to spend a few hours playing with the Stetho tool[1] released by Facebook.
It is an amazing debug bridge for Android applications and I was surprised by its power.

+Wolfram Rittmeyer It's so few linkes of code and if you are already using OkHttp (what you absolutely should) then you're nearly done. Do it and have fun! It takes like 5 minutes

London for a long time was kind of special to me. In my youth we have been on holidays in to the various British/Irish countries a lot and nearly always made a few-day stop in London. Later I also tried to go there as often as possible - though my last visit now has been roughly ten years ago.

I think what this article describes is not necessarily special to London. This is happening in a lot of places. Maybe though especially problematic in places like London or Berlin that are valued because of the diversity of lifestyles, cultures, sexual orientations and what not.

Wherever this happens I consider it to be a problem. Something that for outsiders as well as for all inhabitants (old and also the new ones) diminishes the actual value of the location. Maybe not in monetary value, but in living quality.

When I last was in England, though not in London (in 2009 - the year before our oldest son was born),  I wondered what was different to Germany that made towns still have this distinct character. And my friend and I came to the conclusion that it was the small shops that made up much of the town centres. Of course many large shops which we more or less have here as well were present. But much more tiny shops than we Germans have. We have those, but not in town centres.

Probably those towns look more German whenever I go to Britain again. I guess that's not necessarily something the British are too fond of :-)
 
Depressing read :-/
London is a city ruled by money. The things that make it special – the markets, pubs, high streets and communities – are becoming unrecognisable. The city is suffering a form of entropy whereby anything distinctive is converted into property value. Can the capital save itself?

I go to Britain to experience British culture. Europe is in stress with Greece and possible other countries to come, which mainly Germany pay. The next wave Europe is going to endure is the biggest immigration/social collapse in it's entire history. It won't be pretty!

New post on deferring Observable code until subscription inRxJava.
I've grown fond of RxJava's defer() as a tool for ensuring Observable code runs when subscribed (rather than when created). I've written about defer() before but I'd like to go into more detail here. Suppose you've got this data class:...

Make the right FAB

Probably I am too obsessed with FAB, but the huge inconsistency in FAB implementation doesn't really make me feel good. In this blogpost, I analysed the FAB implementation in a few apps (including Google apps), and also looked into the specifications for the right FAB in Material Design.

Are you making the right FAB?

Floating Action Button, or, in short, FAB, is one of the unique UI element in Material Design for primary/promoted action for a particular screen. Since it is a frequently accessed UI element in a ...

The snackbar takes its colours from the context attached to the passed view. If the context is themed, so is the snackbar.

For the recent Fragment release, I changed the in app purchasing library to OpenIAB.  Here's how I wrapped it with RxJava to make it a bit easier to use.

RxJava is all the rage in the Android world lately, and with good reason. While Functional Reactive Programming has a bit of a steep learning curve …
