Getting on the same page with Paging 3 - Florina Muntenescu

The Paging library enables you to load large sets of data gradually and gracefully, reducing network usage and system resources. You told us that the Paging 2.0 API was not enough - that you wanted easier error handling, more flexibility to implement list transformations like map or filter, and support for list separators, headers, and footers. So we launched Paging 3.0 (now in alpha), a complete rewrite of the library using Kotlin coroutines (but still supporting Java users) and offering the features you asked for.

In this talk we'll go over the main Paging 3 components, see how they fit in an existing app architecture, how to implement them and integrate the most common data paging features.

Florina is working as an Android Developer Advocate at Google, helping developers build beautiful, clean and testable apps. She has been working with Android for 8 years, previous work covering news at upday, payment solutions at payleven and navigation services at Garmin.

Getting the most out of Android KTX - Jeroen Mols

Ever wish you could just use a lambda as an onClickListener? Or change the View visibility by modifying a simple "isVisible" boolean? Or how about using a doOnLayout{} method to run a block of code after view layout?

These are just a few examples of how Android KTX extensions help solve common problems. They improve the existing Jetpack and Android platform APIs so you can consume them from Kotlin in a concise and idiomatic way.

This talk will discuss what KTX extensions are and explore the most useful extensions that you can use in your daily workflow.
