Update 08/07/2012 : After 24 hours, the project has already reached 2600+. 1/4 of the task is already done ! Now we just need to continue to talk about it so we reached rapidly the 10 000 mark ! :D
For the past years, I have been a developer as well as a huge fan of Android. I also have always played with LEGO (when I was young and even still now)
What if we could combine these 2 worlds ?!
That’s what Marc Young must have been thinking when he started his project !
This project looks awesome with even rotating arms, heads and antennas. And frankly I want one for myself ! :D
There is only one problem… This project is part of the CUUSOO system which is a way for people to present project to LEGO for future creation. And before an idea can be valid, it needs to receive 10 000 votes.
Here is a video showing all the modifications made to the source code of Android from the start to Ice Cream Sandwich :
The graph represents the source tree (which uses git). Non-leaf nodes are directories and leaf nodes are files where their color represents the type of file. Files appear as they are modified and disappear if they are not touched for 2.5 seconds.
In other words, each “blast” from a user is a commit. These commits come from both Googlers and contributors. The data was taken from stitching together the logs of all the many AOSP (Android Open Source Projects) projects using a software called gource
First news : I think you have just seen it, but this post is in English. And from now most posts will be in this language. The reason will come in the next news ! As you will maybe see, English is not my native language so I hope I will make as few mistakes as possible !
Second news : beginning January 2012, I will be working in San Francisco at Funzio. I just signed my contract with them last week so it’s really fresh news ! It will be a giant change for me, moving from France to the USA, as well as having to work in English. But I think it will be a really nice experience !
The final news is my trip to London for the DroidCon UK. Last year I couldn’t get there due to an complicated schedule but this time I’m attending it !
Like last year, Thrusday will be the barcamp where all the persons attending the event will be able to either make or view conferences. I wanted to make a presentation about DataDroid but I have not found the time to prepare it so maybe another time !
There will be also a democamp Thrusday evening where it will be possible to make applications demos. Through the PAUG, I think I will demo either WishList or DataDroid depending of the type of presentations !
Friday will be the “conference” day ! And currently I clearly don’t know which conference I will attend and which one I will skip. There is too many choices ! (36 conferences …) ^^
So it will be two busy but interesting days ! I’m really looking forward to it ! I will make a post about it next week ;)
