About this event


0. Intro & Welcome

1. Custom design systems in Compose - Nick Rout

While Material Design is Google's recommended design system and Jetpack Compose ships an implementation of Material, you aren't forced to use it. Compose Material is built entirely on public APIs, so it’s possible to create your own design system in the same manner. This talk will cover different approaches — extending MaterialTheme, replacing one or more Material systems, and implementing a fully-custom design system.

2. Make your Compose UI foldable - Thomas Künneth

Foldable devices are a relatively young device category. They made quite a buzz from the start. In the beginning, because they were not very robust. 🤣 Now, because they ARE robust enough for daily usage. And they make large screens pocketable.
This talk shows you how to make beautiful user interfaces that work well on smartphones, tablets, and foldables using Jetpack Compose and Jetpack WindowManager.

3. Discussion 

Our own Jetpack Compose experts Ahmed Tikiwa and Maia Gotepass are going to join the speakers on stage. Bring your hardest questions or just hang around to chat. 

4. Good-byes
