Talk #1: What to Expect When You're Expecting... Jetpack Compose by Mark Murphy
Google is pouring a lot of resources into Jetpack Compose, a next-generation way of creating Android UIs. This declarative, Kotlin-first option is likely to be a focus for Google in the coming years, on par with Kotlin itself. While Compose is still in early development, we know enough now to have a sense for what Compose-centric apps will look like. In this presentation, Mark will talk about how to start preparing your app now for adopting Compose when it ships a stable release and in the years that follow.
