Throwback Android Developer Google Group

Out of the blue, I remember that I was in a Google Group community of Filipino Android developers back in 2011-ish. After some quick Googling, I found the group. This was in 2011? Wow.

I am surprised the link is still alive, knowing Google’s history of shutting down things.

Yeah, the post feels kinda lonely. There weren’t that many Android developers in my area back then. At this point in time I am not even entirely sure if I could make a living out of this profession. The majority was going into PHP web development.

But my sister always told me to “swim against the current”. So, that’s what I did. 12 years later I am still developing Android. And, iOS development.
