Your Gentle Introduction to Jetpack Compose

With Jetpack Compose now being stable, it is the right time to decide whether we want to start using it on our apps. How does this compare with the XML approach? Is it interoperable? Are there any gotchas or limitations to be aware of? This session will answer those questions and give you a first introduction to Jetpack Compose, the new Declarative UI framework from Google.

The speaker presenting the session is Enrique López Mañas. He is a software engineer, mostly focused on Android and backend development with Java/Kotlin. As a contractor, he has filled his hours with an eclectic variety of technologies: TensorFlow, iOS, Swift, NodeJS, RoR, and Python. Before Living by the Code, he published the books Android High Performance, 100 Android Questions and Answers, and 100 iOS Questions and Answers. He has been a member of the Google Developer Expert crew since 2014. Besides his programming duties, he also runs a few side projects. He is the editor and maintainer of Kotlin Weekly, a mailing list that delivers news about the Kotlin universe every Sunday.
