About this event

Android architecture components are part of Android Jetpack. They are a collection of libraries that help you design robust, testable, and maintainable apps. Start with classes for managing your UI component lifecycle and handling data persistence.

* Manage your app's lifecycle with ease. New lifecycle-aware components help you manage your activity and fragment lifecycles. Survive configuration changes, avoid memory leaks and easily load data into your UI.
* Use LiveData to build data objects that notify views when the underlying database changes.
* ViewModel Stores UI-related data that isn't destroyed on app rotations.
* Room is an a SQLite object mapping library. Use it to Avoid boilerplate code and easily convert SQLite table data to Java objects. Room provides compile time checks of SQLite statements and can return RxJava, Flowable and LiveData observables.

Bob Timm from Bottle Rocket will be presenting, with Q&A throughout.

Doors Open at 6:30 PM, presentation starts at 7 PM. The doors from the parking garage automatically lock at 7 PM, so you may be delayed waiting for security to open the doors if you arrive after 7 PM.

Food will be provided at 6:30, but due to unreliable RSVP counts, we only get enough for about 20 people. Come early to make sure you get some!
