Everybody loves t-shirts! More than one listener in the past has asked us when Fragmented is going to have a t-shirt – one they can wear at conferences and such.
We thought about it, but never could hone in on a wicked design. The bar is set SUPER high for good t-shirts these days! The design has to be iconic, yet you should be able to comfortably wear it to work and it shouldn’t turn you into a public billboard. Most importantly though – the design should be distinctly Android…
That calls for an extra special t-shirt and we’re stoked to tell you this… we have something extra special for you … check it out …
Announcing the Limited Edition Fragmented T-Shirt:
If the design is familiar, it should be. We worked with Taylor Ling who’s released a bunch of amazing DroidTees in the past. Taylor Ling is a phenomenal designer, who also happens to be a GDE for design and clearly understands Android design intimately.
We asked Taylor if he would do a limited edition special Fragmented t-shirt and he gladly obliged (thanks a ton, Taylor). We are super stoked to be releasing these t-shirts. They’re available in a whole bunch of colors and sizes for a limited time. We would be honored if you got one for yourself!
Purchase the t-shirt here.
A tonne of folks have been asking for a show on Kotlin. We got the best person in the business to take us through what could possibly be our new hope.
