PJ started building online services in 5th grade. As a freshman at University of Florida, he had already coded a web reporting system for IBM in Boca Raton. After graduating from the College of Fine Arts, he coded user-engagement algorithms, analytics dashboards, web crawlers and other tools using Java, Perl and PHP.

This is worth reading if you do HTML/CSS. Z-index is rarely necessary but often you inherit weird code: http://philipwalton.com/articles/what-no-one-told-you-about-z-index/

Android needs to solve this if they want my support - http://www.howtogeek.com/189500/hey-google-its-time-to-add-multi-window-multitasking-to-android/ Can't get real work done without proper window tiling.
In 2012, Google’s Dianne Hackborn threatened to revoke CyanogenMod’s access to the Android Market if they moved forward with adding “Cornerstone” multitasking to their custom ROM. Samsung has since created their own multi-window multitasking feature.
