About this event

Spannables are THE key to perfectly scaled, dynamic, performant content. Stop using Html.toText() to do complex layouts that end up rendering fuzzy and slow in comparison. Create layered buttons without the overdraw or recalculation, support multiple font types and background images in a single line. Learn how to create complex Canvas drawings programmatically and multiple languages without destroying a layout.  Its perhaps one of the least covered APIs (even by Google) that is used by the Top Pros.

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!
