About this event

Welcome to the second edition of Android Worldwide!

Please RSVP on the free Android Worldwide Eventbrite link! Link provided below:

Android Worldwide is an international collective of developer communities who like to put on a recurring special event for Android Devs, and related engineering specialties.

This time around, we really want to be as accommodating to everyone around the world. As such, instead of one event, there are three. Each one caters to different time zones, and you are free to attend whichever one you like - no restrictions.

Each event is lead by a different team of community organizers, and each of them carefully picked speakers from their own regions. Paired with fantastic content (🤞), we want to emphasize the importance of having a tighter social fabric.

For that we've selected a special video conferencing software made by, and set aside plenty of time for friendly conversation between you and your fellow community members from around the globe.

You are welcome to register here, on Meetup, where we're emphasizing the event that's most convenient for our community. But, to get access to the call, and to be aware of the other two events as well, please register on Eventbrite - don't worry, it's free.

For this meetup, we are honored to have Andrew Bailey from Big Nerd Ranch presenting a topic surrounding Falsehoods Android Developers Believe About Lifecycles.

Schedule (EDT):
6:00PM: Socializing
6:30PM: Falsehoods Android Developers Believe About Lifecycles by Andrew Bailey
7:30PM: More socializing

Presentation details:

Lifecycles are what drive your Android apps, but developers often overlook edge cases that lead to lost user inputs and mysterious crashes. This talk will focus on assumptions that you might be making in your Activities and Fragments, where those assumptions fall apart, and what you should do to avoid deviously subtle lifecycle-related issues in your apps. These are details that trip up both junior and experienced developers, so regardless of your experience, this talk will bring a new perspective to how you think about lifecycles.
