Embracing Productivity Engineering in Android

Roger Taracha

Senior Software Engineer


Productivity Engineering is fast becoming an integral part of the development & release process in the Software Engineering world today. The benefits of implementing Productivity Engineering significantly outweigh the cost and frustration of inactivity in this space.

In this session, we will discuss the importance of productivity engineering and why Android developers & teams should embrace productivity engineering as part of their development lifecycle.

We will cover topics on how to make a compelling case for productivity engineering to your team and manager using data, we will also cover tips to improve your build, work with build scans to quickly find build problems & collaborate with team members to resolve them, and build caching to significantly speed-up builds.

I will take you through a real-life example of using Gradle Enterprise to diagnose builds, improve build experience, and make a business case for a focus on Productivity Engineering.

You will leave this talk with a better understanding and appreciation for Productivity Engineering. You will also learn the current tips & tools on how to improve your android builds and the value proposition of Gradle Enterprise to make data-driven decisions to continuously improve your build process and developer productivity.

I am a creator whose mission is to help companies solve complex problems in the simplest way possible. I care about finding visions & causes that I am passionate about and using technology to help these companies solve their challenges.

I do this by writing clean, robust code and using agile techniques to deliver tested and high-quality solutions. I have over 6 years of native mobile application development experience & about 4 years of web application development.
