Jetpack Compose is Android's modern tookit for building native UI. If you are unfamiliar with Jetpack Compose, don't worry. We will go over what Compose is and how it works. In this session we are going to take a brief comparison between an XML layout and Compose with a simple application. We will talk about Compose and what is new since Google I/O. We will then look at a little more detailed application to see how Jetpack Compose can help your application look good on Tablets and Foldables.

Free pizza and drinks will be available. Please RSVP if you plan to attend so we can get an accurate head count.

This is a hybrid event! We would love to see everyone in person, but if you feel more comfortable attending virtually or just can't make it in, join live one of two ways:
