<Read Only>

  • TRIBE: Awareness of Self. My cohort is a great group of people and I'm enjoying the introspection. Consistency/Learner/Harmony/Context/Analytical if you've done the session and are interested.
  • IDEs: I have a good Fennec build with Gradle, which can be imported into IntelliJ/Android Studio and builds just fine. Integrating the instrumentation tests is harder; we're running into hard functionality limitations in the Android Gradle plugin. I have a work-around but I'm not certain what the solution looks like.



Martyn Haigh
