Be a good citizen - Care about Android lifecycle and window size

Level: Intermediate

by Guillaume Bourassa, Mirego

Properly handling app lifecycle and window size is a challenge as old as Android itself. However, even today, many developers still don't care enough about it, either because they don't really understand the issue or because they think that they don't really need to. With Google pushing ChromeOS more and more, Android apps that work properly in a multi-window environment is more important than ever. And this requires proper lifecycle and window size understanding. This talk will explain the different challenges of lifecycle handling, how to properly craft layouts that fits in any window size and, above all, why Android developers should care about all that. And why "my app is phone-only and locked in portrait" is not a valid reason to ignore these aspects.

Flutter 1.0, go or no-go

Level: Intermediate

by Samuel Dionne, Transit

Now that flutter have been in version 1.0 for a couple of months. Is it ready for prime-time? We'll look at some good use cases for it and some less ideal situation. Hopefully this talk will get you excited and you might consider flutter for your next project that fits with the previous points.
