Those of you who have worked with or heard of the Raspberry Pi know how awesome the tiny device is. The power of a full blown computer was literally in the palm of your hand, allowing you to experiment with cool projects and get your ideas and experiments to shape.
Android is not iOS. Of course, but the point I want to make here is that there is no single latest version or ‘flavour’ of Android. Being an Open Source project, anyone can create their own version of Android. This has so many advantages, but also some disadvantages as well. Let’s see.
I was looking for a nice keyboard to complement the Logitech M325 Wireless Mouse.
However, the Computer stores seemed to have only Wireless Keyboard + Mouse combo, which would make my M325 redundant.
Welcome to my first post on the brand new mtwoblog
.wordpress.com. I am excited to be writing this and thank you so much for reading my blog posts.
Couple of days ago I wrote a post about how I got started with an Arduino UNO and wrote my first Sketch (a Sketch is an App written using Arduino IDE and and uploaded to the board via Serial). Click here to read it.
The Starter Kit had an LED attached to a a very small PCB with four pins. Picking it up I realized it was an RGB LED with three resistors printed on it. Neat!
I knew what I wanted to do with it.
A friend of mine gifted me an Arduino UNO starter kit a while ago. I didn’t have the time and motivation back then to dabble in it.
Fast forwarding to this day, I watched Massimo Banzi’s TED Talk in the morning, one of the guys who helped invent the Arduino. It was inspiring.
So, what is it anyway? Arduino is a credit-card sized micro-controlled board that can be be used for a whole lot of purposes, so much that one could dedicate his life on researching the everyday potential of it.
I ended my last post saying how awesome the Material Design is, which was revealed along with Android Lollipop a year ago. After writing a few apps on Android Studio I wondered how amazing it would be if we can have this beautiful typography, subtle transitions and animations in more places than just droids…
Needless to say, Android has become the leader of the mobile platform market. Starting with smartphones and tablets and moving onto TV, wearables and vehicles, Android never seems to stop.
My message here is that there is never a better time to hop into Android Development, in case you are programmer or hoping to be one.
I am not here to undermine other mobile OSes. iOS, WP and BB are great too, but I have always been an android fan and the market too points in its favor.
