The oldest Android developer meetup in town 🤘
This week, we will have two Android talks:
Matthias Geisler @bitpogo - Rust on Android? Or how to ship a bug to multiple platforms.
Rust is one of the raising stars in the pantheon of programming languages and grows even into Android lately. But how can we profit on Android from Rust and beyond? This talk marks the beginning (not the End!) of a journey into Rust for Mobile.
Stojan Anastasov - Error Handling Beyond the Standard Library
When building applications it's easy to focus on the happy path and forget about error scenarios. However, in the real world failures happen, and dealing with them is as important as the happy pah.
Kotlin and the standard library offer some approaches for dealing with errors like nullable types and sealed classes. But for many robust applications that might not be enough! I will present the tools and techniques offered by the Arrow library that builds on top and complements what Kotlin offers and helps you achieve composable error handling logic with a minimal amount of boilerplate code.
After attending this talk, you will have yet another tool in your toolbelt that will help you build robust applications.
And thank you so much for Telekom @deutschetelekom for hosting!
