About this event

Android Studio is smart and helpful in many ways. One of the most helpful things is related to how Android projects build.

When an Android application is created in Android Studio, the project comes with a set of automatically generated Gradle Project build files. We'll look into the details of these files to gain a better understanding of how they work including build types and product flavors. 

Also, we'll take a look at the Gradle Projects, Gradle Console and Build Variant view in Android Studio.


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!
