Good code  

I am actively retired and playing mostly in Android, Java, and eventually TensorFlow, I hope.

Privacy Policy
I am keeping private any information that I may have about the users of my apps. In general, my apps do not send data to anyone, and some apps may ask the user to send an email to me when an anomaly is detected (in order for me to get data on the cause of the anomaly and hopefully improve the app); such an email can only be sent when the user approves it. Some apps do request the permission to *RECORD AUDIO*, as Android calls it, but this is for accessing audio data from the microphone or from other audio devices connected to the mobile, this is required for these apps as they are expected to use this audio data and process it for the user. In some cases, the audio data can be whistles from dolphins or vocalisations from birds and other animals. Google requires that the publisher of an app using microphone data (and other sensitive permissions) has a privacy policy such as this text.

Writing Code for a Few Decades
After a few years of programming, I came to realize that the essence of good code writing was keeping it as simple as possible, while satisfying the requirements.

Pride and Joy
Our current pride and joy is )s) Dolphin Communicator, an Android application for communicating with free dolphins using underwater whistles in real-time.
