I'm a recent graduate from Carnegie Mellon University with a strong interest in application frameworks, GUI toolkits, the Go Programming Language, and open-source software.

I am currently a Google engineer working on Android Studio.

Most of my time on StackOverflow is spent answering questions under the , , and tags.

comment API docs titled “v2.0”; should be “v2.1”
Yeah... I mean that's what I figured. That's why I tagged my question under "bug". Hopefully someone will see this and update the docs, because it's not readily obvious from the documentation that v2.1 has been released.

comment Java wrapper for the Stack Exchange API 2.0?
@jjnguy I can help out if you need me... you're one of the people who actually wrote StackWrap4J, correct?

comment Java wrapper for the Stack Exchange API 2.0?
@jjnguy Not 100% sure (and last time I checked they hadn't even ball-parked it). API 2.0 has out of beta for about 6 months now so I'd guess sooner rather than later (?). From what I can tell 3.0 is going to be mostly an extension of 2.0 (i.e. the addition of write-only API calls). That said, there are some parts of the documentation that say things like "this could be changed at any time" etc. and I'm not always certain which parts should be trusted.

comment Java wrapper for the Stack Exchange API 2.0?
@jjnguy In all honesty, I didn't really end up modifying/extending all that much (I was mostly concerned with badges, inbox items, notifications, etc.). I do feel like I have a pretty good understanding of how StackWrap4J works though (I looked through probably 80% of the source code), so I'd be able to contribute I think. I would hate for v3.0 to come out though and potentially ruin any work we put into v2.0... what would be the best way to write the library given that it will eventually need to be brought up to 3.0 standards?

comment Is the “link” URL enough to uniquely identify an “inbox_item”?
OK, that clears up a lot of confusion... my next question was going to be are inbox items ever change once they're created. Thanks!

comment Add message ID to inbox items
What happens when a question is migrated to a new site? Won't the link change in this case?

comment When will the “site” field be absent from an “inbox_item”?
One last question... when the "site" is down, shouldn't the result be an error of some sort? Why is it that the site field is absent instead?

comment When will the “site” field be absent from an “inbox_item”?
OK, that makes sense. Thanks for clarifying!

comment What does “Unchanged in unsafe filters” mean?
Thanks for the explanation... I figured it was something like that. If this is true, don't you think "unchanged in unsafe filters" should be re-worded somehow? I couldn't figure out what "unchanged" referred to... maybe "safe in unsafe filters?" Or maybe even something more detailed...?

comment Stack Remote - Free Android app dedicated towards Stack Exchange sites!
@KaranM would love to see the source code too... I'm not too familiar with oauth, so it could help save me a lot of trouble :P
