Keep you updated about new Android stuff

It exists a lot of different sources to get great tips and what's new in the android ecosystem.
This protip will try to list them and explain to you how I manage to keep myself updated with the latest content.
I want this protip to be collaborative so please if you know other resources, comment at the end and I'll add them.

Design

Redesign of old apps the HOLO way

Code

Official channels

A resume of what happened in the android world this week, often you'll already know about everything but sometimes you can find an interesting library and/or article you've missed

Social network

Twitter

  • @commonsguy : protips
  • @cyrilmottier : Android Google Developer Expert 2012, post a lot of little protips
  • @JakeWharton : author of ActionBarSherlock and ViewPagerIndicator, post update about its projects and Square's one.

Google+

(thanks @lehtimaeki!)

Android team:

My personal technique

Most of the devs who wrote on the blogs I've listed above are on Twitter and post frequently using #androiddev. If you check the androiddev hashtag once or twice a day, you should get all the new and fresh stuff (usually two or three interesting links a day).

I'd definitely recommend following Android stuff on Google+ if you really want to be part of the discussion. There's a really active community and the discussion is very useful.

Thanks for the mention :)

@lehtimaeki Good point! I'm not really into G+ right now but I often see good debate about android dev, do you have some G+ profile to share ?

@florianmski Sure. There's of course all the Android dev advocates who are very active there:
Nick: https://plus.google.com/u/0/118292708268361843293/posts
Roman: https://plus.google.com/u/0/113735310430199015092/posts
etc.

Then there are hundreds of Android devs who actively participate to discussions with tons of experience. They are too numerous to be listed here but here are few:
