What every Java engineer should know about microservices: Reactive Microservices Architecture.  Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

Sometimes, Android development is terrible. This recent blog post by Tony Cosentini discusses some of the more common and recognizable pain points in Android development, and how to get around them. Consentini concedes that Android development has been improving lately, pointing to developments like Android Studio and its Gradle build system, but there are still problems. In particular, he focuses on the following:

  • Activities that are treated like view controllers
  • The fragility of intents
  • Problematic unit testing

And for each, he provides a solution. For example, he points to Square as a useful source for a number of Android-simplifying solutions. Take a look at the full post for more ideas on how to solve some of the basic frustrations in Android development.
