AnDev Con 360 – Library Developer Confidential

For the last several years of my career me and my team have been tasked with creating and maintaining libraries that handle complex bluetooth communication and Android UI. In this talk we will go over setting up library projects for success, bootstrapping an architecture that will allow you to grow with minimal collisions and boilerplate, how to build/deploy multiple libraries while trying to debug without losing your sanity and more. At the end of this talk it is my hope you will feel confident enough to start and maintain your own library project. This talk is part gradle, part java/kotlin and absolutely free of Git Submodules.

BABBQ – Being an Advocate for Android

“We can just port this from iOS to Android” If you are an Android engineer then chances are you have heard this phrase many times in the past few years. It may even be because of this phrase that you are here today. I am no exception to this quandary, numerous times in my career I have found myself responding to this question or others like it. The first time I heard this I became irritated because certainly any designer working in the mobile industry already knew everything about Android. I quickly realized that this wasn’t one person neglecting the beloved Android platform. The problem is a lack of day to day experience with the platform. From that day forward I decided I will not contribute to the growing divide between the Android organization and the rest of my company. That was the day I became an advocate for Android.
