Guess what Android Platform Team: You don't get to publish badly documented crap and then complain that developers aren't doing things they way they "should" do it. If you want us to do things "the right way" you have to tell us what that way is. This is engineering not religion.

This talk would be really funny if it wasn't for the fact that Google/The android team are really really shit at producing or encouraging real best practices. When I saw the title of this talk I was hoping so hard that there would be some actual content to this but of course not. It's easier to be funny than useful.
 
We can't get enough of +Chet Haase's Best Practices for Software Development session at #BABBQ5 .

Ok. I'd love to have a little talk with the genius that decided that random photos that have been backed up from your mobile device should be prominently displayed on your page even when they default to private. Sure, no one else can see them FROM THE WEB but hey, newsflash: Sometimes you use google+ with others around you IN REAL LIFE. The f-ing photo highlights-box can't even be hidden. Shoot your UX people please.

Det här är en galen chansning, men det är en sak jag inte kan sluta ångra. 1994 (+-1år) satt jag på ett tåg som åkte från Skövde till Linköping. En otroligt vacker tjej klev på, helt klädd i vitt och med rakat huvud. Själv ha...

Because I didn't loathe Groupon enough already
"GNOME" has been a familiar name in software for the past 17 years, and a registered trademark since 2006. The GNOME project has been a staple desktop for GNU/Linux and BSD desktops. It was the default desktop for Sun Microsystems workstation class machines, continues to be the default desktop ...

Yeah that's very nice and all except that I can't create Intel AVDs using Google API's. I also cannot run intel haxm stuff on Mavericks. I've come to prefer running the extremely slow version of the emulator than trying to get haxm/snapshots working after a quite exhausting number of kernel panics. All in all it would be nice if google actually tried to make the testing set ups work and be well documented rather than trying to tell us we're stupid for not using their magic tricks. And yes, you're right. Most of the bugs isn't in hardware specific stuff. It's not even in android-dependent stuff. So why do I have to go to third party solutions like robolectric just to be able to run efficient unit-tests? Because android/google decided to force us to run tests on devices (virtual or real) which makes tests take minutes rather than seconds even on fast computers. Dear google reps, stop insulting us.
