Check out my "Material Now" session on May 28 at Google I/O!

I/O 2015 - Google’s annual developer conference -  is later this week, on May 28–29, in San Francisco. On Thursday the 28th at 4PM PDT, I’ll be hosting the Material Now session (https://goo.gl/3Dq9ox), where we’ll be looking at the state of material design in all its forms.

We’ll start off by looking at some of the phenomenal design work happening across the many apps you can find in the Google Play store today. We might have something special planned for the amazing designers and developers behind these apps, so make sure to tune in...

We’ll also look towards the future, and talk about the tools and other resources we’re building to make adopting material design even easier.

If you’ll be at Moscone, join us in-person on Level 2. Otherwise, tune intothe livestream a... more »

I'm incredibly proud of Google for this stance. Through my close work with them in the recent past, I have some insights into how complicated (and in many cases, emotionally exhausting) it is to figure out how to best draw the lines in such areas. To call it difficult would be a vast understatement, but the folks at Google who work on this are incredibly dedicated to doing the right thing.

Here's a small extra improvement for Android M that I really appreciate!

New in the M developer preview: windowLightStatusBar. Flipping this on in your theme tells the system to use a dark foreground, useful for lighter colored status bars. Note the M preview seems to have a bug where notification icons remain white, while system status icons correctly change to semitransparent black. #materialdesign___Here's a small extra improvement for Android M that I really appreciate!

Today at #io15 the #materialdesign team gave a couple talks about lessons learned from the first year of #materialdesign. For those of you who missed the session, you can still get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of #materialdesign. Learn more about the philosophy behind the system as well as first-hand accounts from a few of the designers on the team.

Android Design Support Library: bringing material design to life
The Design library brings a number of important material design components to all Android 2.1 or higher devices (http://goo.gl/KZBhH2). You’ll find a navigation drawer view, a floating label TextInputLayout, a floating action button, snackbar, tabs, and a motion and scroll framework to tie them together.

You’ll be able to build your navigation drawer’s items using a menu resource file and connect a TabLayout with a ViewPager with just a single call to setupWithViewPager().

AppBarLayout lets you set scroll flags to control how views such as your Toolbar scroll on and off the screen or extend it farther with CollapsingToolbarLayout to resize title text size, pin views as the app bar collapses, and add parallax effects - again just a few lines of XML.

With components that match the material design spec out of the box and the tools you need to provide rich behavior between views via the new CoordinatorLayout, the Design library gives you the building blocks needed to build a modern, great looking Android app without building everything from scratch.

Congrats to all Material Design pioneers!

Announcing the Material Design Awards and Showcase

Today, we’re celebrating the amazing work Google Play developers have been doing with #materialdesign and announcing the Material Design Showcase and Material Design Awards.

With the new Material Design Showcase, we’re highlighting 18 great uses of material design with users through a collection on Google Play:

See the 18 showcase apps at g.co/materialshowcase

Of those 18 apps, we’re recognizing 6 with a special award, which we handed out at Google I/O earlier today. Our new sizzle reel below sums up the spectacular work from the individuals and teams behind these apps.

A Google approach to Photos

At my daughter's preschool graduation not too long ago, my wife and I naturally wanted to capture the moment. So together we took a little over 550 photos and videos! And then promptly ran out of time to do anything with the photos we took. I think we can all sympathize with this; expecting all those photos and videos to make reliving the moments that matter easier, only to find out that the sheer volume has made it harder. 

And that’s why I’m thrilled to introduce the new Google Photos. A home for all your photos and videos, organized and brought to life, so that you can share and save what matters.

Check out my blog post about how we’ve made it easier to relive a lifetime’s worth of photos and videos through the new Google Photos. http://goo.gl/TbBuZX

See you soon!

Get ready for even more material design

Google I/O 2015 kicks off tomorrow, and we’ve got an exciting lineup of design-focused content to experience both in-person and online. This year, we’re focusing on the ways we’re making it easier than ever to design and develop in material—with added assets and resources, backwards compatibility, and continuous updates to our design guidelines. We’re also celebrating some of the inspiring ways designers and developers have started to bring material design to life in their own products. Tune in at 4PM PDT on Thursday, May 28, to hear Matias Duarte’s “Material Now” session (goo.gl/gVZiIi), to get a complete overview, and keep a look out for more updates.

"My country, right or wrong: if right, to be kept right; if wrong, to be set right."

HT +Yonatan Zunger 

"It is the innocence which constitutes the crime:" thus ends James Baldwin's powerful indictment of the American public. The charge he lays at our feet is of a collective refusal to be aware of what we are doing, and what we have done. And can we disagree with this? I've heard excuses before of "we didn't know what was happening," "it's just what had always been done," "we were only doing our duty;" I'm sure you have, too. Have you ever, once, known them to be true? 

In 1962, a Gallup poll showed that 85% of whites said that "black children had just as good a chance as white children to get a good education in their communities." In 1969, another Gallup poll showed 44% of whites saying that "blacks had a better chance than they did to get a good paying job." Look at those dates for a moment, and think about the world then. In retrospect, those statements look like complete madness. Were they any less nonsensical at the time? No: they were completely obvious back then, too. But there was a strong urge not to look.

This article is an excellent, and serious, discussion of the things we have been unwilling to look at.

Coming on the heels of Memorial Day, I find this particularly important. America has achieved many great things, but it has a deeply ingrained habit of ignoring the many terrible things it has also achieved. The country (like all countries) is very good at establishing an "official narrative" of what happened and why, a narrative we all learned in school, one which suggests that mistakes were made but everything is fine now.

The reason we can't ever let ourselves accept this is that when we ignore past actions, we blame the wrong people. When we ignore present actions, we cannot fix them.

Many people like to wave around the phrase "my country, right or wrong!" as a meaningless patriotic slogan. Remember the full quote: "My country, right or wrong: if right, to be kept right; if wrong, to be set right." It's not an admonishment to ignore any flaws; it's a reminder of our shared responsibility to our country, to understand what is right and wrong with it, so that we can preserve the former and repair the latter.

This article is an excellent introduction to some of the things which are and have been, undeniably, wrong. We don't need to make excuses for it; we just need to recognize it, understand it, and fix it.

"The opposite of science isn’t girl." - Sara Chipps

"Princess" is a choice, which is orthogonal and independent, of "scientist", "maker" or even "fighter".

Furthermore those roles are independent of "Girl" or "Boy"... I know I have a perpetual battle trying to channel more of my inner princess and less of my inner prima-donna!

Amen!

"You have to keep doing that work because there are still all sorts of imbalances that need correcting. Right now, there's some toddler with a brain capable of curing cancer, and we're never going to know because he was born in inner-city Detroit, and he's going to go to a bullshit school and grow up with no positive role models. And the moment he commits a misdemeanor as a teenager, society is going to declare him a lost cause and flush him away. The process intended to discover his talent, cultivate it, and get him into a lab curing your cancer is still in shambles. Please note that it's just as tragic if, instead of curing cancer, his best-case scenario is to grow up to be a good friend and father while doing oil changes at Jiffy Lube.

Helping to rectify that situation is one of the many, many things you're tasked with due to having been born in a fairly high place in the world. It's not "fair," but that's a meaningless word when referencing things you have no control over. You didn't ask to be born half-way up a mountain, but you were, and I need you to look down and realize that mountain is really a pile of bones."___Amen!

HT +Dan Morrill​

It is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.

Kiril shows off three different approaches, that are nonetheless all completely Material.

While Material lays out the ground rules / guidelines / suggestions on layering and overall structure of the "chrome" around your content, there's ample space to explore and shape your own take on the same problem space.

In this short GIF you can see the current approaches from three different apps - Mizuu, Philm and Play Store. From the status bar to the toolbar to the hero image to the main content of the page - follow the layering, the parallax, the cross-fades, the translucency and the rest of what happens during the scrolling.___Kiril shows off three different approaches, that are nonetheless all completely Material.

"If you become aware of any individual degrading another, then show moral courage and take a stand against it." - Lieutenant General David Morrison

#IWillNotStandBy  

Every day, we read about another woman who has thrown in the towel. A woman who's left her team, or her company, or her industry, fed up with the constant exhaustion of having to continually deal with sexism in the technology industry. And there are doubtlessly many many more who leave silently, without a high-profile exit. How many women (or trans* people, or minority ethnicities, or...) leaving the industry—or worse, never entering it—over this shit are we prepared to tolerate? Even if they don't leave, how many lives are willing to make miserable? How many careers are we willing to stunt through fear, anger, and distress?

I want to make one thing perfectly clear, especially to my fellow white straight cis-males: I'm not OK with this. Not by a very long way. As a manager, I want to make it quite clear that any team under my management will have zero tolerance for sexism, racism and transphobia, in whatever form they come. If I see it, I will call it out. If you want to do it, move elsewhere (ideally out of my company, or even better out of CS altogether). This applies as well for teams, groups, or conferences I participate in, but don't manage: if I see it, I will say it. If it continues, I am done with you and I will do everything in my power to never have to work with you again, at my current or any future company.

I beg all of you to watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QaqpoeVgr8U, a video made in the face of (yet another) sexual misbehaviour scandal in the Australian army. It is by far one of the most powerful anti-sexism messages ever spoken. I literally have a calendar reminder set to watch this every few months, because it is so powerful and resonates with me so strongly. It's a refreshing reminder of what a powerful anti-sexism message can look like.

Watch it, and if you take nothing else away from David Morrison's speech, take away this: "The standard you walk past is the standard you accept". It doesn't matter if you're not doing it (making the jokes, performing the microaggressions, belittling the contributions); it matters that you allow it to happen. By allowing it to happen, without stepping in, you are giving it your implicit approval, and letting it take root and grow. The standard you walk past is the standard you accept.

For the managers reading this, remember his followup: "That goes for all of us, but especially those who, by their rank, have a leadership role". As managers, some of us have a unique ability and responsibility. Do not let this fester in your team. If it festers in your team, it spreads, and the whole of your team, your company, and your industry all become lesser places for it.

Don't be silent. We, as individuals and as an industry, need to root this rot out and destroy it. It will take all of us, and I promise to do what I can.

How cute of them to think we "just learned" ... maybe we just didn't feel like sharing? ;-)
