    Chrome 77 – What’s New in DevTools

    [MUSIC PLAYING] KAYCE BASQUES: Chrome 77 approaches. Here’s what’s new in DevTools. First up, you can now copy an element’s CSS styles. I like the styles on this link element and want to copy them. First, I right click and select Inspect to highlight the link in the DOM tree. Actually, I want to make the font italic first. Now I’ll right click the element and select Copy, Copy Styles. And when I paste to the Clipboard, I can see the element styles, including my font style, italic declaration. When you’re reading an article and the content jumps around, that’s called layout shifting. It usually happens because ads and images…

    Android Jetpack: Introducing WorkManager

    [JET ROARING] LYLA FUJIWARA: Your app won’t always be in the foreground. But you still need to do important background work like downloading updates and syncing with your server. Now, there are many existing APIs for this, each with their own particular use cases. Unfortunately, when these APIs are used incorrectly, we see this happen. To save power for users, Android has introduced many battery-saving features in recent releases. These features manage and balance the power usage of apps. As a developer, you need to work with these battery-saving features to ensure your background tasks run across API levels. This adds code complexity. But if you don’t do this properly,…

    Scaling web app on Google Compute Engine (Get Cooking in Cloud)

    SPEAKER 1: to Get Cooking in Cloud, where we shared the best recipes to apply in your cloud kitchen, I’m Priyanka Vergadia. And in this episode, we will talk about scaling a web application on Google Compute Engine. As we learned in our Compute Engine example, when web apps are deployed on GCE instances, deployment and scaling is done automatically and seamlessly by using instants templates. When your website becomes popular, and the users integral from 1 to 1 million, you need to add instances. And when the requests go back down, you need to remove those instances to keep the costs low. But how does adding and removing instances…

    Community Visualizations: Messages and data updates from Data Studio

    [MUSIC PLAYING] YULAN LIN: Hi. My name is Yulan Lin, and I’m a developer advocate for Data Studio. In this video, we’re going to talk about when Data Studio sends updated messages to your community visualization. First, let’s remind ourselves what community visualizations are. To load a community visualization, you click on this icon and you can either add a featured visualization or add one by ID. Here, I’m adding a bar chart that I filled. A couple things to note here. I’ve chosen which community visualization I want. Data Studio requests and loads the code, and then it preloads the data from my data source with a dimension and…

    Using field masks with update requests to Google APIs (The G Suite Dev Show)

    WESLEY CHUN: Greetings, developers, and welcome to “The G Suite Dev Show.” In this episode, we conclude our two-part series on field masks. I’m your host Wesley Chun. In the last video, we discussed reading data from an API and how you can use field masks to control the amount of data that gets returned– you know, partial response? Well, today we’ll focus on rights, or more likely updates– you know, via post, put, or patch? Well, you already know that field masks aren’t things you wear but instead work like a filter. More specifically for updates, think of them as a bit mask, where data represented by bits that…
