About this event

Get ready for a summer full of Android! Enjoy talks by Googlers & Community experts about a variety of topics!

In this second session we'll have Manuel Vivo from Google join us to talk about the new Hilt library. Then, once we know all about Hilt, it's time to make sure we treat all of our users right, and to do so Wiebe Elsinga will teach us how to make apps accessible for everyone!

Hilt: Dependency Injection for the mere mortals - Manuel Vivo

Dependency injection (DI) is a technique widely used in programming and well suited to Android development, where dependencies are provided to a class instead of creating them itself. The new Hilt library defines a standard way to do DI in your application by providing containers for every Android class in your project and managing their lifecycles automatically for you. Join the talk to learn more about how to use Hilt in your Android apps!

Manuel is an Android Developer Relations Engineer at Google. With previous experience at Capital One, he currently focuses on App Architecture, Kotlin & Coroutines, Dependency Injection and Jetpack Compose.


A11y support - Wiebe Elsinga

When creating a great Android app did you make sure all of your users can use it? Wiebe Elsinga will show you how users of different accessibility services interact with your app, and how you can make your app a11y friendly.

Besides being a GDE (Google Developer Expert) for Android and GDE Product Strategy, Wiebe Elsinga is a Lead Developer at Egeniq in The Netherlands. He has a passion for UX and design. He regularly speaks at Mobile Developer conferences, or is giving workshops.
