Modern Android Development - Ben Weiss

This presentation will give some historical context for where Android, and Android development practices, came from, and where it is at now, with an overview of the major tenets of Modern Android development in terms of language, tools, APIs, and distribution.

Ben works on Android Developer Relations at Google. His focus is on making applications compatible for the new app model. Much of his time is spent navigating app modularization and dynamic features. Next to that he coordinates the Android GDE program.


CoronaMelder & Workmanager Issues - Hugo Visser

In this talk we’ll dive into the topic of scheduling background work. We’ll talk about the main ingredients: AlarmManager, JobScheduler and WorkManager, how battery optimisations are good for users but no fun for developers, and we’ll discuss what tools are available to debug and troubleshoot scheduled work.
