Join us at droidcon in 2022

Joy Liu

Hello Android developers!

We’re excited to announce that conference events are offering in-person attendance this year, which means we’ll be able to meet face-to-face in addition to interacting via social media and Twitch!

droidcon San Francisco

The first event on our droidcon calendar is San Francisco on June 2nd and 3rd. Join us at droidcon to learn more about building dual-screen and foldable apps for Android. I will be presenting a talk on Jetpack Compose:

Foldable, Meet Compose

Have you started to think about building or enhancing your application on foldable, dual-screen, and large-screen devices? Are you considering bringing Jetpack Compose into your project? What if you can do them together at the same time?

We believe that Jetpack Compose, as a modern declarative UI framework, can help you write and maintain your UI easier and faster, especially building the responsive UI on foldables, dual-screen and large screen devices. We would like to show you how we support these new form factors inside Microsoft and how easily you can achieve that with different libraries. Furthermore, we will also explore how to test the applications on foldables with Compose.

The talk will cover:

  • Jetpack Compose with Jetpack Window Manager for dual-screen and foldable devices
  • Jetpack Compose TwoPaneLayout control
  • Jetpack Compose testing

You can read some background about these features from past blog posts:

The Microsoft Yammer team is also presenting some of their experiences building for Android:

Architecting Your Android Library

Want to build a library and distribute it, wait you may want to consider a few design principles for better delivery. This session covers designing, building an example library, and publishing it to the customers.

Drop by and say hi!
