Android and Eclipse No More!

Google has been warning us for awhile that support for Eclipse would eventually go away for Android development. That warning became imminent yesterday, as they announced that we have until the end of this year to stop using Eclipse and start using Android Studio.

Granted, you can still develop apps for Android using Eclipse and the Android plugin, but support will be absent by year's end.

I must admit that I'm still more comfortable with Eclipse than I am with Android Studio. However, this is exciting to see energy and progress on the Android development front. This change is good. Now myself, like many others, need to put away the comfort and familiarity of Eclipse and embrace Android Studio!
