Title: Work Smarter, Not Harder; Make yourself indispensable!

Abstract: We all know that laid back developer that turns things around with ridiculous efficiency, do you want to be that person? I'll cover the methods and tools I employ throughout the day to get things done quickly and effortlessly. You'll leave this talk with a quiver of strategies, and a knowledge of the arrows you lack, to do your job better, faster, more accurately, and with less effort over the long run.


Speaker: Mark Dappollone

Title: Animating Vectors: Programmatic Motion In Android 

Abstract: Working with traditional images in Android presents a number of problems, namely, storage and scalability, and animating those images presents an additional set of challenges.  We'll look at animating Vector images to both reduce apk size, and improve the aesthetic and performance of your Android application.
