We had a closer look at SQLCipher 3.5.0, which brings Android N compatibility and results in smaller APK sizes. There is one drawback however...
SQLCipher 3.5.0 with support for Android N was released yesterday. Previous versions of SQLCipher linked to non-public Android libraries, a practice Google warned about earlier. Android N is getting stricter about linking to platform libraries. To comply with Android N, the SQLCipher authors did ...

On Wednesday, June 22nd, we're organizing I/O Extended Extended, a meetup full of introductions to topics that were announced during I/O 2016.

We're looking for community members to take the stage! Want to share a few words about updates to Android Studio, new additions to the Support Library, a new beta preview for N, Firebase, Android Wear 2.0 or something else?

A presentation can be as informal as you like, and anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes long.

If you're an Android developer, and you want your screen to stay always on while you are debugging, but not while plugged in on your nightstand, start this issue.

Reading the details, looks like it's a replacement for Proguard.

I wrote a blog post over the weekend.

Making Espresso Tests Work With Runtime Permissions

http://dannyroa.com/2016/04/11/android-making-espresso-tests-work-with-runtime-permissions/

#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.

+Felix Homann Sure, it's a bit light. But the basic message of this post is the important part with which I agree.

Android Studio 2.2 ships with OpenJDK. In my case the font handling is pretty bad.

I'm not very fond of Oracle as well - but I must say, that I prefer the font rendering of their JVM much more.

What I don't get is why Android Studio 2.2 ships with a JRE in the first place?

Caveat: This is on Linux. Cannot say anything for any other OS.

+Andreas Schildbach Oracle's JDK renders fonts with 'full' hinting, while OpenJDK with 'slight' (or follows the system setting, which for my case is 'slight'). So, different hinting should result in different looks. My comment had to do with which kind of hinting one prefers, which is personal.

Finally!

The 3rd article of the series on #architecture for #android is out!

http://pguardiola.com/blog/clean-architecture-part-3/

Feedback is more than welcome!

#catanarchitecture #qualitymatters

First of all I would like to apologize for the delay in releasing the third and final article of the series. I’ve been a bit busy lately, sorry… In the meantime, Clean-Architecture related posts have been appearing (e.g. Hexawhat Architecture?), my friends from Karumi have released two versions of Rosie (their awesome Android framework to create applications following the principles of Clean Architecture), Otto, a library that I use in the sample...

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.
