Navigation and the Single Activity: Learnings from a Skeptic
Lead Software Engineer
Fragments have often been controversial, and to some, the stuff of nightmares, with the inconsistency of lifecycle events, complex UI interaction, and unexpected behaviours making many Android developers suspicious of their usage.
But with the development and recent stable publication of the navigation library, it may be the right time to give them a chance. Giving Fragments a second chance is not something I’d ever thought I’d be saying, but it’s a fantastic opportunity to find a solution to sharing data across a single screen.
Explore with me as I walk you through my experience implementing the navigation library and safeargs, and how I used them to implement type-safe argument bindings, and how you can utilise the once-troubled framework type to your advantage.
Clever Delegate for Deferrable Background Tasks
Divya Jain, Mobile Developer
Guaranteed , battery friendly solution to problem of ensuring the critical background tasks are executed despite the restrictions and in a constraint environment , even after the app exits? WorkManager is your new smart delegate Library that solves this complex background processing. The talk will help us understand :
Basic overview including underlying concepts, how to specify tasks and restraints
Suitable tasks use cases - When and when NOT to use WorkManager
Chained Sequences & unique named sequences
I will be demonstrating a real world problem, and how Workmanager is an improvement over existing solutions to solve this.
