Brilliant post about icon animation on Android
 
An Introduction to Icon Animation Techniques

Week #1: wrote 27 icon animations for Android
Week #2: learned how to animate SVGs using SMIL and CSS
Week #3: learned the basics of Adobe After Effects to create cooler and more advanced icon animation effects
Week #4,5,6: learned JavaScript and ported 19 icon animations from Android to SVG to use as inline blog post demos
Week #7: rewrote and polished a bunch of animations, planned out structure of blog post
Week #8: writing, editting, rewriting, deleting, rewriting again, editting, repeat...

Don't think I have ever worked this much on a single blog post before... but I wouldn't have it any other way. Let me know what you think, and don't forget to share! :D

Who knew Java annotations could be used to "fix" Java's visibility problems!

How long before we see a claim that America (and the world) can be fixed using Rx and a GitHub library for it called RxTrump?

Whoa - this is big news. It is 5 years too late but it is here finally!

I wonder whether NetBanking can be used for signing up for developer accounts too.

Am I the only one who finds the "flatMap" concept of functional programming the most difficult to understand? Every time I think I got it, a few days later I have to re-learn it again.

For me when I see flatMap used in some code I get it, but I am lost when I need to use it myself.

It is incredible that manufacturers did not do this voluntarily. Regional languages in India have always been ignored when it comes to penetration of IT.

Good step by Government. There has to be a compulsion for apps too :P
