Android's OpenGL font renderer explained

I just wrote an article to explain how we implemented Android's OpenGL text renderer. This font renderer can handle a large number of fonts and glyphs dynamically and so so efficiently on a wide array of devices and GPUs. It is by no means perfect but you might find some of our tricks helpful.

Tip: Syntax highlighting everywhere

Occasionally, I get questions from people about how I apply such neat syntax highlighting in my emails and my presentation decks.  There are online tools to do this, but frankly, it sounds like work, and I don't want extra work.  

My current favorite way is right in Android Studio — the IntelliJ plugin 'Copy' on Steroids.  (Plus, it has an amusing name.)  You can install it by going to Android Studio > Preferences > Plugins > Browse Repositories.  Now, your default Ctrl-C copies RTF text ready to paste into Gmail, Keynote, or whatever you use.  Keep doing what you're doing, just do it with more style!

(not really #androiddev, but close enough)

We've wrote up a summary for all those that couldn't make it to the last Android Meetup in London. Some Novoda clients kindly let us show off a few concepts for consideration of how we will transition to Material Design. #materialdesign #design #androiddev

In response to +Tavon Gatling 's post on the Watch callbacks base class! (https://plus.google.com/u/0/101581283591300788111/posts/je1SJtu5RCE) I took the code and turned it into a registrable class so that you don't need to extend another Activity. https://gist.github.com/blundell/bba18a128214d5fa1250

Remember ` activity.getApplication().registerActivityLifecycleCallbacks()` is your new best friend

Cool!
 
If you give about 50 people enough time, they might eventually take an endless selfie. #selfiecircle   #androiddevdays   #gdg
