I have recently experienced

Installation error: INSTALL_FAILED_INSUFFICIENT_STORAGE in my Android application when I am trying to Run and install my app on the emulator.

What I did was: add -partition-size 1024 when launching the emulator.

Beginner's Error in Android

Specified child already has a parent
Specified child already has a parent

Currently I don’t get why I am experiencing this error in Android. Hopefully when I study Android’s intricacies further then I will be able to understand the reason behind this error….

I found a similar case (actually there are a lot of cases where developers encounter this same if not related error in android development) of The specified Child already has a parent Error in developing Android applications. Here's another case of Specified child already has a parent.

Basically, you should call removeView from the parent View first before adding another Child View. Either that or consider designing your code in a different way.

Started reading The Busy Coder’s Guide to Android Development-3.1.

The Busy Coder’s Guide to Android Development
started reading The Busy Coder’s Guide to Android Development-3.1. (But my top priority will still be being able to make a product)

(Update on this blog, after almost a month. I think). Right now I have put down the e-book temporarily because I was so busy during the last weeks but I am meaning to get back on reading The Busy Coder’s Guide to Android Development-3.1.

You can follow Mark Murphy of the book mentioned from

Right now I can say that the book is a good read from what I have read and browsed so far in the book. It features useful basic API of the Android UI components' functionalities.

Started on my journey on SEAM

Just 2 days ago I started reading SEAM in Action by Dan Allen. So far the journey is quite good. Reminds me of the times when I started reading about Ruby on Rails. I am impressed with Ruby on Rails, that's a fact. someday I might switch to becoming a Ruby on Rails programmer (at least when developing web applications that I think are of a small scale. meaning not enterprise level.). But right now I am so much invested in my pool of Java knowledge and experience. Aside from the fact that I still consider having Java as a tool for my creative output still a fun endeavor.

So now I am on my 3rd day of my initial journey to SEAM (version 2.0) and I can't hardly wait for the journey ahead. ciao!
