Reactive Programming for iOS with Interstellar 2
Have a look at how to make Swift and Objective-C interoperability seamless. Basics of including Swift code in your new or existing Objective-C based projects and helping yourself when you want to deliver some parts of Swift-based application using Objective-C code.
Modularizing your apps: Framework Oriented Programming
Have you ever tried to reuse code from your mobile apps and you haven’t been able to? Did you start using frameworks only when Apple suggested it for Watch Extensions? With more platforms coming out, there's a clear need of bundling logic that can be reused and shared in multiple platforms. Frameworks will help us with that and will benefit our application code bases in many ways. Learn how to do it, with or without dependency manager involved, recommendations and some caveats you must keep in mind. Start building your own Foundation frameworks, reusable, well designed, and with single responsibilities.

The 2016 Android Developer Toolbox
Whether your native Android app is a pet project or has millions of users, you probably need the right tools, during the development, to help you modify persisted data in real time, simulate an slow/unstable HTTP(s) connection, detect bugs as fast as possible, or create mock servers to anticipate the development of a feature. We'll make a demonstration of all the tools we use, in 2016, to write maintainable code and improve our productivity.
Break the monolith with (B)VIPER Modules. Or how do I start modularising my code for a better (engineering) life.
In the software engineering business there is no one fits all solution but when design patterns arise in the community it is important to understand the reasons why they were originated and how to tweak them for our purposes. This talk will explore the VIPER design with top-down approach, deriving the design decisions from quality attributes of a software system including modularity, reusability, testability, single responsibility and more. You will learn the reasons why the design was initially conceived (Clean Architecture by Uncle Bob) then formalised for mobile (by Mutual Mobile) and how to revise it to fit your purposes. Eventually a modified version of the design, friendly called (B)VIPER, will be discussed as improvement for better reuse of modules among different teams.
Bonjour Android, it's ZeroConf
ZeroConf is a protocol that helps us advertising a service or discovering the available services in our networks. This is how Chromecast works, but why don’t we go deeper? We will dive into the definition of ZeroConf and why the protocol is needed, how it works and what libraries will help us implementing it on Android.
Functional on Android: lambdas, Rx and streams in your app
On Android, more and more developers are attracted to the functional programming-style concept of declarative data manipulation using lambdas. Java 8 has a new steams API, but it's limited to Android N. Backports exist, but it's RxJava that's all the rage, with its elegant threading solution. How do we use lambdas, streams and Rx effectively on Android? Orientation changes and background tasks? I propose to stop worrying about the lifecycle and cache your way into a blissful user experience.
Appium: Automation for Apps
Basic introduction to automating mobile apps with Appium.
Interacting with your app through command line
Android command line is a very powerful tool. During this talk, we'll briefly review what Android shell commands can be useful for development, testing, and automation. We'll concentrate on how your application can interact with the command line considering 2 approaches. The first one is based on Android framework tools and the second is the core of Facebook Stetho tool.
greenDAO 3 and beyond
greenDAO is the fastest ORM for Android. greenDAO 3 brings annotations and prepares the way for further enhancements like RX support. The author of greenDAO gives deep insights about how to best use ORM to make app development productive and fun.
How JRebel for Android Does Performance Testing
As developers we often employ unit- and integration testing to catch bugs early during development. But how to detect regressions in performance? Sometimes a small slowdown can go unnoticed for weeks or months until the app becomes unbearably slow and a profiler gets attached. In this talk, we'll take an in-the-trenches look at how we set up a performance testing suite for JRebel for Android. We'll talk about challenges we faced when running the tests on our CI servers. We'll also cover how we pinpoint regressions to a single commit with the help of Elasticsearch and Kibana.
Elegant?? Unit Testing
In this session we will learn the basics of Unit Testing and its importance. We will define what a Unit Test is, what type of Unit Tests there are and then talk about Test Doubles. Finally, we will focus on how to write new tests and improve existing ones by reviewing some Android Github projects. Can you sleep soundly without writing tests? Really???
Custom Annotation processors for your production code
The annotation processing tool (APT) was released into the JDK 5, but we did not paid enough attention to it in order to exploit its potential. Today, annotation processors are part of many well known libraries that we use everyday in our professional code. On this talk we will learn how to code our custom annotation processor and to start looking at it as a very useful tool to reduce overhead in our production code. Because many recurrent problems could get solved using annotation processors!
Espresso, beyond the basics
More than the typical onView example Espresso offers a complete framework to interact with your UI. Once you start developing your tests you find common issues, in this talk learn tips and tricks on how to deal with the framework and avoid problems like synchronization, permissions, environment test scenarios and much more.
Android High Performance
Performant applications are one of the key drivers of success in the mobile world. Users may abandon an app if it runs slowly. Learning how to build applications that balance speed and performance with functionality and UX can be a challenge; however, it's now more important than ever to get that balance right. This session will show you how to wring the most from any hardware your app is installed on, so you can increase your reach and engagement. An introduction to state–of-the-art Android techniques and the importance of performance in an Android application will be introduced, and later we will slowly walk through the Android SDK tools regularly used to debug and profile Android applications, learn about some advanced topics such as building layouts, multithreading, networking, security and battery life ( one of the biggest bottleneck in applications).
RxJava for the rest of us
The Reactive Extensions for the JVM, better known as RxJava, have become a popular tool in Android development over the past years. Many new and existing libraries added support for Rx and “reactive” solutions to existing problems popped up over time. RxJava is both known for it’s power and it’s steep learning curve, so if you aren’t using RxJava already, what are you missing out on? Should you even be using RxJava? In this talk we’ll go over what RxJava is and how you can use it to solve problems in your Android apps, one step at a time. We will discuss how you can prevent shooting yourself in the foot by looking at common mistakes you may make when using RxJava and discussing tips and tricks for keeping your reactive app manageable.
Getting down to business with Firebase
Firebase goes beyond being just an alternative to building a serverless application. It is a complete solution to control and monitor several aspects of both your product and business. We will discuss how easy is to integrate Firebase with your current application and how it can be used to improve your experience towards your users from a technical standpoint.
Revisiting types in Kotlin
With a domain driven approach, this talk will go through several coding examples and how they can be improved by leveraging the powerful type system in Kotlin with function objects, sealed classes, tuples, and the core collections. We'll review the way your application communicates across layers, and how you can improve your APIs with explicit types.
Security at your Fingertips - A dive into M&N's new Fingerprint and Keystore APIs.
Android Marshmallow (and most recently Android Nougat) have introduced a lot of fresh features and the new permission system is by far not the only new security enhancement. Most of you already use their finger to unlock the smartphone and may have heard about this new fingerprint API - but have you ever played with it? And once we’re there: Do you know about the newly introduced improvements in the Keystore API? No? Then this talk is definitely for you! Still hesitating? Just remember that security and a good user experience is something we cannot know enough about. With just a few simple steps you can learn how to increase the security of your app, making authentication easier and your users happier - all at once. And to be honest: in the end that’s all we want, right?
