For a long time now, the product teams have been utilizing the number of tools to help them understand how users interact with their features and apply their observations to improve user's experience.

In this talk, Medo will explain how engineering teams can take upon a similar approach to improve their code quality by defining and tracking engineering metrics, observing and analyzing the data and ultimately taking action upon their learnings to improve the product.


Ivan Dimoski a.k.a Medo is a software engineer with 6 years of Android development experience. He moved to Sweden from Macedonia 3 years ago and joined Truecaller to help build an amazing experience for hundreds of millions of users worldwide.

19:10 - 19:50 Modularization - How Hard Can It Be? by Elin Nilsson

Modularizing Android codebases is all the hype these days. It can be as simple as moving a few files, and maybe creating a new build config or two along the way, or it can be much more gruelling. At Spotify, it has meant clearing out years and years of tech debt, re-writing APIs, rethinking the architecture and structure of the application and features that go into it, wrestling with build tools, and then some. This talk will walk you through the Spotify modularization journey: why we got started, how we went about it, what we have learned through the process, and also why you should be thinking about modularizing your code if you haven't already started.

Bio: Elin is an Android developer in the mobile architecture team at Spotify in Stockholm, working on frameworks, libraries and infrastructure for speeding up development. Enjoys API and system design, popcorn, and climbing.
