We'll be hosting three exciting talks.

1: Hello Workflow:

An introduction to Square’s new Workflow library ( for Android (Kotlin) and iOS (Swift), which allows composable state machines to drive UI navigation and content, where the state machines are cleanly separated from UI code. Four months ago, we rewrote it! Find out what’s changed, what’s new, and how to write a Hello World app.

2. Leak Canary

LeakCanary 2 Alpha 2 is out, come learn about hot new features, crazy improvements and gnarly implementation details!

LeakCanary 1 helped detect memory leaks but had several issues: constant freeze of the UI, OOM crashes while analyzing, results hard to analyze, a confusing API, and an ugly logo.

No more! Come learn about multiple leak detection, leak grouping, smarter analysis results, detecting leaks in UI tests... and much more!

Oh and LeakCanary 2 is 100% Kotlin, updated to Android X, and it even has a cute new logo!

3: TBD!
