Mobile Development Week #500 (July 31 – August 6)

In the new anniversary edition, we create default avatars and explore TipKit, write a completely native GUI application without Android and pass Android interviews, learn the rules for creating beautiful interfaces, defeat server tips, explore the mobile experience and much more!

In our Telegram channel Mobile Insightseven more materials for mobile developers, and in IT Insights — about interesting code and technologies. Connect!

We would like to once again invite you to Developer Nation survey. Tell us what you like or dislike about popular tools and platforms. The survey covers 13 areas: mobile, desktop, cloud and web applications, industrial Internet of things, games, machine learning, artificial intelligence, etc. The survey is available in 10 languages, including Russian. You can start and save to continue. You can win prizes. The main thing is to contribute to the development of the developer community.
