About this event

Talk: Single-Activity Architecture using Android Nav Components
Speaker: Sam Halperin

The Navigation component helps link together screens of a Single Activity Application. Used with LiveData, all the features of a modern router, including conditional navigation, and a navigation stack are provided. Through its visual navigation graph, the Nav component helps to serve as an organizing abstraction, and informs the architecture of this type of app.

Sam is a certified Google Android Developer, and currently works as an Android contractor/consultant. He was one of the original authors of Azavea’s OpenTreeMap, and has a slew of indie apps published under the Blauhaus Software brand. He is currently working on ‘greentask’ for the Discus Institute, a sustainability startup and nonprofit, which should be launching in a couple of months.
