Android Performance for Dummies (and Experts)

Bhavita Lalwani & Darshan Pania

Full Stack Developer & Android Team Lead


How many times have you measured your app start-up times to reduce the bounce rates? Do you check out the size and contents of third party libraries before including them in your project? Have your users complained that your app is eating away their RAM or draining their battery or is very slow? Does your build take a lot of time or does your layout take a considerable time to render, and you do not know why is that happening? This is everything that this session is all about.

With my co-speaker's experience of building a SDK powering more than 8000 applications and reaching out to millions of devices worldwide and my experience of building world’s first regional and India’s second-largest Mobile OS and developed for the Government of India reaching out 100 million users, we will be talking about profiling your app, using Benchmark by Jetpack, measuring your UI & App bootup intervals, memory monitoring, handling memory leaks, battery optimizations and other improvement techniques which will help you understand the nuances of Android App Performance. We will also be breaking the myths related to Android App performance.

This session is catered to each and everyone out there, from beginners to experts who want to understand how to measure the performance and improve their app using the best practices and Android developer toolkits.
