A(rghhh!)ndroid

OK. I’ve finally purchased a recent desktop set-up and could take a serious look at the Android development platform. With a surprise, I discovered that Google made a interesting shift toward IntelliJ. Is this kind of a fish slapping dance? It doesn’t really matter who is who here, but Eclipse Foundation does not feel particularly well I’m afraid.

 

Anyway, this is not about an IDE war.

Let put it straight – what a horribly bloated environment is this! With simplicity on the user side, comes complexity on the developer desk. Isn’t it? Java and tons of XMLs. I never liked that couple.

But still, this is an interesting platform, to make money of course. And could be worth to invest few hundreds hours in it.

Is there an Android demo scene? A rhetorical question :)

    • Frankly, I do not know much about the Android demoscene. I just ran a quick search and of course found something.

      Amiga scene is pretty vibrant. Almost every demoscene event brings something new for ECS, AGA and PPC variants.
