Day three at JavaOne

Posted by fabriziogiudici on September 22, 2010 at 2:55 PM PDT

Well, this morning I delivered my talk and, as usual, now I'm more relaxed. Things tried really to go wrong as my power plug adapter (that I've been using until this morning in the hotel) refused to work (hey, it's just a mechanical thing! No computer inside!) and the battery of my laptop wasn't charged enough to live until the end of the talk.

Updates from JavaOne

Posted by fabriziogiudici on September 21, 2010 at 1:52 PM PDT

One day after the splash, I must say that the "distributed venue" approach for JavaOne is showing a number of pitfalls; the most important one being the time you waste moving back and forth. Consider that walking from the Hilton or the Parc 55 to Moscone (e.g.

Splashing into the new JavaOne

Posted by fabriziogiudici on September 20, 2010 at 10:45 AM PDT

Today is the big day (well, actually the introductory keynotes have been held yesterday evening) and I was eager to splash into the atmosphere of the new JavaOne.

A soft shake for blueBill Mobile

Posted by fabriziogiudici on September 13, 2010 at 3:08 PM PDT

Ok, sure, now everybody is focused on the upcoming JavaOne... but after the week in San Francisco, the usual carousel of conferences will go on. blueBill Mobile for Android is getting close to be feature-complete with the addition of fact sheets, including images.

My talk at J1 and recapping the state of Tidalwave projects

Posted by fabriziogiudici on September 13, 2010 at 1:04 AM PDT

Well, "Tidalwave projects" might sound pretentious, given that the corporate is just me... but it sounds better than "Fabrizio's projects" ;-) I suppose 4/5 people could ask me about their state at J1 and to save time I'm recapping the information here.

Some more food for brain about the Oracle vs Google war

Posted by fabriziogiudici on August 30, 2010 at 7:19 AM PDT

While most people keep on screaming, you might find it reasonable to keep on watching out and understanding what's happening; and wait before deciding to support one of the two parties. These two articles are interesting in my opinion:

The openness of the Android Market

Posted by fabriziogiudici on August 22, 2010 at 12:12 PM PDT

Well, yesterday my app passed 1,000 downloads and I'm happy. But I'm less happy in seeing that the percentage of active installs is going down since ten days: after having been steady at 45/46% for a couple of months, it dropped to 38%.

On why the Oracle-Google war might have a happy end

Posted by fabriziogiudici on August 15, 2010 at 3:45 AM PDT

In my previous post I said that the new Oracle vs Google war might have bad as well as good effects on the community. As usual, most people are screaming about the possible bad effects. I'd like to share an hypothetical scenario where the effects are good.

Oracle vs Google: stay cool

Posted by fabriziogiudici on August 13, 2010 at 9:33 AM PDT

So, today's big scoop is Oracle suing Google for a number of alleged patent infringements with Android. Doomsday announcements are spreading all over the world, as you might expect. So, are we going to die with loud screams?

I got my first Android crash report

Posted by fabriziogiudici on August 12, 2010 at 6:13 AM PDT

The crash report feature collects unexpected exceptions from an Android apps and delivers it to the Development Console where the app author can analyze it. It is only available on Android 2.2, which is not yet widespread, so until today I've never seen a crash report. This morning I received one.
