Hands-On Android O Beta: My Initial Thoughts

After the announcement from the latest Android O at the Google I/O, an annual event for developers. Google released a Beta program that can give you the opportunity to try the pre-release version of Android and share your feedback.

Android Prototyping for Designers - Shapes and Click Event

Prototyping has become a very important part of the UI/UX design process. With mobile applications taking over the web it is imperative for designers to find ways to test their designs on the devices.

It worked quite well and still does, however it's not a very reliable approach if you really want to understand the constraints and complexities that a developer may face when translating your designs into the final product.

California Highway 1 - Wallpaper

The wallpaper of this week is a photo I took while driving up north on Pacific Highway 1, one of the most beautiful drives in my humble opinion.

For me, there's nothing like the cold breeze of the ocean and the sound of the water hitting the rocks on deserted beaches, no houses just you and nature.
