The author's last post (tutorial 01) was on Android Software Stack and Terminology. This post will be for beginners with Android applications, and will teach fast mobile application development using Android Developer Tools (ADT) based on the Eclipse IDE.
Writing separate apps for each platform is time consuming, error-prone and plain boring. Sencha Touch’s Device Profiles give us a simple way to share between device types as much code as needed, while making it easy to customize behavior, appearance, and workflows for each device.
This month's Continuous Delivery industry update includes: Electric Cloud launches two new automation and build tools, IBM launched a simplified environment manager, Codeship gets a redesign, CFEngine Enterprise 3.6.0 is out, Chef issue tracking is updated, the CloudBees and Serena partnership, and more.
Performance is critical when you are building apps for mobile devices. In many ways, perceived performance is more important than actual performance. In this article, we’re going to focus on the user’s perception of performance.
In many of my applications I use a CRC/checksum to verify that the code/flash on the target is not modified. For this, not only the code/data in flash counts, but as well all the unused gaps in the memory map.
It's been an eventful few days for Android: the move from Dalvik to ART is finally upon us, and the Supreme Court's recent ruling is pretty interesting as well - you know, given the whole Oracle on Android using Java thing. So, then, what better time for an Android history lesson?
There are various NoSQL solutions for mobile platforms such as the iOS and Android. Here, we will look at Couchbase Lite (CBL – the successor of TouchDB), a lightweight, full-featured, embedded JSON database.
It's been pretty clear for a while now that Google was going to move Android from Dalvik to a new runtime called AOT runtime called ART - we talked about it in November, then December, then again in March - but it looks like it's finally happening: Dalvik has been removed from the AOSP master branch.
To start with. I want to call out that attempting to define “IOT” is like attempting to define “the cloud”. Over time, “cloud” has settled on a definition that revolved around a collection of attributes: scalable, self-service, pay for what you use, and internet accessible.
After the announcement of the Amazon Fire Phone, the author was left scratching his head as to why Amazon would push out such a lackluster entry in the smartphone game. But upon further thought, he decided it might be a savvy move for one reason: the Mayday service and its appeal to older generations.
Most businesses depend on third parties to reliably deliver products or services to their customers. E-commerce sites rely on delivery services. Broadcasters rely on cable and satellite providers. And web platforms rely on cloud infrastructure to keep their systems accessible.
People tend not to be too enthusiastic about Android's default emulator, and while there have been some improvements and solutions, they're not perfect. What Android developers need, according to Jake Wharton, is a simulator.
