Clean Architecture

I’m all about being the best I can be at what I do. I accept critique all the time from anybody. If the person is right, I learn, if he’s wrong, I explain why, we start debating and I still learn. So, recently I started to change my code style and started to read on […]




What has testing tought me

I think it’s been a little over a month since I started implementing tests. Recently, I delivered my first full testable app and although I’m just at the beginning, i can feel a huge difference in my coding style. Let me explain. I didn’t feel much of a difference at first, but I opened an […]




Devices I use – my babies

As an android developer, you need to have devices to test on. For the last two years I worked on heavy GPS location based apps and had to test on a multitude of devices. Real devices OnePlus Two: my day to day phone. I do most of my development on it. Nexus 5: got it last […]




Goodies – 1

Small stuff I started to use in the last few days: TinyDancer – for FPS drops. Stetho – for debuging with Chrome tools. I started to use it cause I needed to check network traffic of my app. Vyzor – cause I am lazy, i hate simulators and preffer to not bother and lift my […]




So… I got the job but I refused to go

Fuck! 6 months ago, a friend left for UK, he offered me his spot at a company. A mid-senior position and me only as a junior-mid developer. I went to the interview with other people and I got the job. Furthermore, I got the job together with another ex-colleague of mine that was mid-senior as […]




RxJava

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. After some really really good, painfull and slow code refactoring we got to a version in which the app works, but […]




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 […]




Flavours

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. But now, with 6 flavours and everything added, there was no way to do […]




TextView with links and different styles

Let’s switch to writing something more educational and leave aside my usual rambling. Today, had to create this screen. Thing is, that the content, may or may not have a link or more inside. And those links should be handled by an in app browser. As well, we have that pound sign (#) that has […]




Schedule

I’m very obsessed with the schedule I have. I have a dance studio to run, a day job, some freelancing and have to take care of my new business. No I don’t want to have less work, I want people to respect my schedule. My day: 7:00 – wake up 7:30 – respond to emails for […]
