In the morning, you sip your coffee, ready for an exciting day ahead. You rely on Android Studio support, and new code arrives in a flash from the tips of your fingers. Everything is great until you try that new library with custom way of doing things. At the end of the day, you can recall only endless copy-pasting, broken IDE navigation, and absent method completion. What a misery!

We'll cover how we faced broken support for the Litho framework in Android Studio, did user research, and made Litho a first-class citizen by implementing Android Studio plugin for it.

By the end of the talk, you'll know how to boost productivity within Android Studio by yourself.

In the past, Kata fought for performance and size wins of the Android mobile SDK used by millions of users. Since she joined Facebook in 2018, she's working on the Android UI framework (Litho) and driving better Developer Experience with reliable tooling.
