About this event

🟒 Who's the speaker?
Jeroen Mols is a Google Developer Expert (GDE) in Android, the former lead Android developer at Philips Hue, and an internationally recognized speaker. With a passion for complex systems and highly technical apps, Jeroen has helped realize four connected products and over 15 Android applications.

Experienced in leading large teams, he can step beyond his developer role and provide technical leadership to others. He continuously challenges the status quo and mentors people surrounding him to grow. Shipping apps to millions of users, Jeroen has a thorough understanding of both the Android framework and how maintainable software should be crafted.

🟒 What's this session about?
Ever wish you could just use a lambda as an onClickListener? Or change the View visibility by modifying a simple "isVisible" boolean? Or how about using a doOnLayout{} method to run a block of code after view layout?

These are just a few examples of how Android KTX extensions help solve common problems. They improve the existing Jetpack and Android platform APIs so you can consume them from Kotlin in a concise and idiomatic way.
This talk will discuss what KTX extensions are and explore the most useful extensions that you can use in your daily workflow.

🟒 Do I need to have certain technical backgrounds?
This talk is for everyone; however, it's suitable for beginners & intermediates. As well as familiarity with the commonly used Android APIs.
