I somehow missed this talk when it was uploaded in November, 2014: kind of nice to hear someone talk about an SDK that has more-or-less been integrated into every app that I have worked on for the last year (Crashlytics).

If you do any work on building/designing SDKs for Android then you should watch this.

Yep, OSX is completely safe from malware. It's also completely safe to use your credit card in a win98 box in a Russian internet cafe.

TIL that dot notation in style names actually does something
 
Just posted an article about styling Views on Android (without going crazy!)

#gde #article #android
Styles are hard to get right on Android. There's a lot of potential for frustration. The hierarchy easily devolves into spaghetti code. How often have you wanted to change a style but feared you might break something unintentionally by doing...

I’m riding in the American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure 100 mile century. I, like many others, are committed to doing all I can to prevent and cure diabetes.

This ride is a great way for me to do that.
Please help me (and my team: Here for De CURE... and the BEER) reach our goal of $2000 dollars.

Thanks!

On Upgrading Gradle or Android Studio

One of the reasons I have avoided updating Android Studio like the plague.  When I get a version working the way I want.. the last thing I want to do is update and have everything break.

To be fair, this is completely expected for using a beta product and it is my own fault for doing so.

... but it would be nice if the error dialog offered an option to fix things like what is shown in the screenshot.

PSA:  If you update to Android Studio 1.0 RC1 (and presumedly just updating to the latest support gradle plugin) "runProguard()" is no longer part of the DSL, and has been changed to "minifyEnabled".

I was on AS from the very first version and it was my conscious choice to deal with all those deprecations/changes/issues on the go. Finally I'm just tired of this and switched back to IDEA (and feel happy).

There's got to be a reason why God created copy and paste

Quick, decent price - breakfast burritos are a good size, but kind of bland. I'll go back another time to try other items.

Was attending an event in Mountain View and all of the neighboring hotels were booked. This one was a little far away but had decent reviews. Hotel staff were very friendly and the room looked clean. The walls are thin as paper, could hear everything from the rooms around me. Plan on wearing ear plugs at night.
