It has been awhile but I think android uses Java (or an open version of Java) for their applications.

My previous place had unlimited vacation and there were a lot of people that didn't use much.  I usually had to remind people to take vacation.  It wasn't because the workload was necessarily insane (there was pressure but no one was working OT often).  People were just hard workers and didn't really care to take it.  Then of course you get the one guy that abuses it (and eventually got fired over it because he couldn't reign himself in).

Yes, taking vacation is actually possible.  You are allowed to bank two years worth (so 20 days until you get the bonus vacation days at 10 years) before you stop accruing more days.  If you start getting close to your cap HR will send you and your manager a notice and basically tell you to schedule some vacation.  I haven't heard of anyone actually hitting the cap after they restructured how vacation was given ~8 years ago.

Right now we are the middle of a heavy lift and what we've asked is that people plan their large (multiple days) vacations asap so we have a much notice as possible.

A couple of years ago we did do a vacation blackout for about a month when we did a major system cutover.  Plenty of notice was given and it was limited to those teams that just had to be here to support it.

can you actually use your vacation days?  I find that even with my meager 15-17 PTO days I've had per year over the last 10 years, I end up carrying over or losing (depending on company policy) at least 5 to 10 of them and the days I DO take are generally just ad-hoc days (like a single Friday, or the Tuesday after a Monday holiday).  I've heard stories, especially in the tech industry, of companys with unlimited Vacation time but the workload prevents you from ever using it.  I kinda feel like I'm already in that boat.

I wonder if my girlfriend would move to northern cali?  of course, I'd probably not be able to take my kids. Hmmm
