[Salary] Android Developers in Los Angeles County

Developing Android Apps - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 23:07

I've developed Android applications professionally for 2 years and am looking to switch jobs. I'm a "good" developer, and can do well on technical interviews, and am wondering how much I should ask a company for salary-wise.

I'm currently making 77k USD + 10% salary year end bonus.

Can anyone give me insight into what I should be asking for in the Los Angeles / Santa Monica job market given my experience?

Team player + fun, fun, FUNNNN + company trips wooo + fantastic journey OMG + it's not work, it's play! = shit pay as an Android dev?

Developing Android Apps - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 22:11

I was initially tempted to apply at Mindvalley, but then reading through the website sent off multiple alarms in my head.

The interior looks too much like a kindergarten than an actual office. There is a video of employees posing with toy guns, and excessive smiling and hugging everywhere, and everywhere I am pitched about how fun, fun, funnnnnn it is to work there rather than how well I am going to be paid for my work.

Sure enough, reviews at Glassdoor reveal that salaries are low and burnout rates are high at Mindvalley.

Is this just Mindvalley, or should I also be aware of other companies that adopt the 'fun fun funnnnn' approach?

I want to be taken seriously in my profession and I am money driven, so I am wondering if freelancing is actually the way to go in that case.

Seek/dial control in android

Developing Android Apps - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 20:55

I am new to Android dev, though I have good experience with developing UI applications for desktop. I want to use a seek control in my application that is similar to the FM radio app frequency change control. The one where the needle is fixed at the center and the user swipes the dial beneath, left or right. I could not find any reference online, maybe I didn't search for the right keywords. Is there a free control available or I need to write one? If I need to write one, where do I start? Thanks in advance. Cheers, Bejoy

Can't HTTP GET local host name?

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 19:28

I'm trying to set up some sonoff switches with tasmota, and I'm using the http commands. The problem is I can't get the HTTP GET to work with the switch's local host name, but it works fine with the ip address. Ie. Using

HTTP GET works fine, but

HTTP GET switchname/(command) does not work with Tasker. It does work on my pc browser, so I know I'm using the right name. Can Tasker not resolve local hosts by name?

[Update] - SMS and Call Permissions: One Step Closer

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 18:21

I've got some good news!

After Google got in touch with me about the SMS and call permissions in Tasker, they've now added Task Automation apps as an exception in their exception list!

I would be shocked if Tasker was denied the permissions now! 😁

In any case, I'll post the final confirmation after I (hopefully) get the approval from Google!

Thanks again for all your help throughout the whole process everyone! You're all super awesome!

Also special thanks to Mishaal Rahman for letting me know that the exception list was updated! 😀

Make Image from USB Device Using dd

Command Line - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 17:16

I bought a PS2 to PS3 memory card reader. That's PS as in PlayStation. It fits the PS2 memory card and plugs in to USB on the other end.

I didn't actually want to plug it into the PS3, instead I wanted to make an image of the PS2 memory card for backing up using dd on OS X. But I can't find where the device is using df or mount or disk utility. I know I won't be able to read the contents via Finder but that's okay.

I've also tried diskutil list but I only get the partitions on my interal Mac HD. Doesn't seem to list any USB devices?

How do I make an image of the memory card?
