Sorry for the offtopic, but is there a place on the web where I can ask for the best practices for Android development?

@Jakub Search on Google and limit the date to a few months back, up to 2-3 years ago for simple things, and without time limit for niche stuff or APIs that are not so recent

Thank you @louiscad my concerns are usually about the architecture and scalability. Google mostly links to
StackOverflow
and they don’t like questions about best practices. I was thinking that maybe there is a place were all pr0s hangout and give me tips. but I guess there is no paradise like that 🦄

Regarding Android development, you need to judge on a case by case basis usually, this is not pure math.

Fair enough @louiscad seems like reading open source code as a case study, making mistakes and fixing them when app is growing is the most efficient way to go at the end.

Theres a lot of conf videos (droidcon) that discuss problems/solutions people working on larger apps have experienced/solved that may or may not be applicable to what you're doing. I generally focus on iterating user business/user problems first, solid, tdd and constantly iterate refactor
