Last week, I was giving feedback to someone about improving the commit messages they write. I was very taken aback by their response – “it does not matter what the commit messages are”. Now this is confusing for me, mainly because I know from years of experience that having relevant commit messages is important.
Welp. Here we are. Another year is about to end.
Learning something new is always fun and exciting. That is, until seemingly cryptic error messages start creeping up.
As would probably be obvious by now, I have been investing a lot of time in learning and using data binding.
I have always been told I’m stubborn. And I am. So jumping off this post, I continued doing instant apps stuff and I learnt more things this week.
When Android Studio 3.0 was announced at I/O, I was very keen to try it out. Mostly because of all the cool stuff in it, but also because of more support for instant apps.
I was updating a bit of code the other day that involved dynamically inflating views into a
DataBindingUtil.inflate(LayoutInflater.from(context), R.layout.row_related_property, container, false).
The couple of months before I/O had been pretty hectic. Super excited to be able to finally talk about it!
During the beginning of my Android career, one of the things I had to do was to save some data to somewhere. I found out that for my purposes, I had to use an SQLite database. Reading through the docs, I was afraid. Petrified, even.
Over the weekend, I gave a talk at Droidcon Vietnam about data binding and Plaid. One person told me that public speaking seems to come naturally for me and today I would like to illustrate how that came to be.
