Tutorial & Opinion
- "With the latest I/O conference, Google has finally publicly announced its plans for its new runtime on Android. The Android RunTime, ART, is the successor and replacement for Dalvik, the virtual machine on which Android Java code is executed on."
- "There is nothing like being among the first to get your hands on a language, and being among the first to explore it. Even if you immediately find ways to break all the things."

- "Developers are the top of the funnel for Android’s continued success. Without quality development tools there are no quality apps, without quality apps there are no quality users, and without quality users the developers will flee. Half of the developer flow in this funnel comes from the tools and the other half from APIs. This post is about the former."
From Around DZone
- "Last week, Google Play Services 5.0 was released. There's been some talk recently that its swift growth may be beneficial when it comes to cleaning up fragmentation, but there could be some drawbacks. According to Jake Wharton, in fact, there may be more drawback than benefit."
- "In this article you are going to learn how to perform remote grouping in a Sencha Touch Store using a .Net backend. The tutorial covers using a Sencha Touch Store's grouper config, using the Store Class's remoteGroup config, using the Store Class's setGrouper method, and more."
- "RoboVM 0.0.14 has been released! We heard about this tool not too long ago - cross-platform mobile development platform, taking Java to iOS - and it's pretty interesting, so if you're looking for a way to put your Android skills to use on other platforms, you might want to check it out."
- "Google I/O shook things up a bit last week - ART is finally for sure, and now we've seen some cool new developer tools - but one significant aspect of ART that didn't get covered is garbage collection. According to the updated ART documentation, a compacting garbage collector is coming to AOSP."
- "Jeff Bezos is on stage right now in Seattle presenting Amazon's new smartphone offering, Fire Phone, and according to a variety of live-Tweet streams, it's pretty exciting. But the big news is the Fire Phone's major feature, Firefly, which can scan and recognize just about everything."
- "Google's programming language, Dart, has been around for a while now, but it hasn't quite taken off the way others have. According to some, though, it should be front and center as the core language of Android."
