One of the best articles for beginners (like me) to understand RxJava is this one: https://upday.github.io/blog/reactive_mindset_burgers/ At the moment, i’m having a problem with an app that works with Realm on too many threads.

I know where my place is

I like to think about myself that I’m an above average programmer. Actually, I like to think of myself I’m even more than that. Still, I’m cocky, but I’m not stupid. Have a project that I’ve been working on with five other developers (2 droids and 3 ios) and it’s turning into a monster huge […]


Been working on a huge ass project with around 6 different flavours. Each with it’s name, package, icons, assets, server, certificates etc Until recently, we only had to switch icons for two flavours and I would just move the assets around.

Why I double read your contract

Just got a nice contract with someone that seems a really cool guy and there’s something that bothers me. The fact that I’m kind of an ass. Has a contract one year ago in which I lost A LOT of money. That was a huge loss for me and I’m not willing to take a […]

So i have this weight problem…

At least, that’s how I call it. Let me go into details. I have 5 jars, and each jar has a unique flavor that I want to taste. The jars are labeled from A to E. What i’m doing at the moment: randomly picking a jar and displaying it. Only that randomly picking the jar […]
