Dan Quagliana, Zebra Technologies

Android has a poor reputation in the market around security. This is especially damaging in the Enterprise space where security is of prime importance. In this talk I will review data in several reports to highlight the reality of security in Android, changes Google has made to their tools and processes to enhance security, and best practices to demonstrate to Enterprise customers that Android apps the audience builds are secure. I will review how features introduced in Android 6.0, Google Mobile Services and third party extensions collaborate to provide to the market state of art solutions. This talk will answer questions like: 1. Android threats, real or FUD? 2. Security updates, why are they critical for the Enterprise market 3. Security and Long Life Cycle of Android devices, what are the market best practices Attendees will leave knowing how to speak to the security and strength of the Android platform.

droidcon SF 2017 – Despaghettifying the hairball

Ella Polo, Square & Pierre-Yves Ricau, Square

Once upon a time, your app project started as one tidy & tiny module. Today, the codebase is “mature”. The app stopped fitting in one dex a long time ago, yet most of the code still lives in one giant hairball of a module. This talk will go over the principles and tools we use to modularize tangled Android spaguetti code, enabling things like Instant Apps, extracting SDKs, and making new apps from one large shared codebase.

droidcon SF 2017 – Efficient Lazy Loading for RecyclerView with Room

Yiğit Boyar & Chris Craik, Google

RecyclerView can be used to display a long list of items efficiently but sometimes; even the list itself is too big to load into memory. Unfortunately, it is not easy to load data lazily but still provide a great user experience. We will first discuss the shortcomings of the current lazy loading solutions, go deep in the SQLiteCursor class and clarify why we need better lazy loading APIs. Then; we are going to talk about the new Paging component, show how it tackles these problems and finally mention the integration with Room and the future plans.

droidcon SF 2017 – Blazing Fast Android Development: Hot-Swapping Modules with Buck

Josiah Gaskin, Facebook

As of today, the compilation and installation of Android apps during a debug cycle are both incremental, thanks to buck and exopackage. Unfortunately, apps still need to perform a complete cold start in order to load the changed code. In this talk we’ll introduce a new feature coming to Buck, Facebook’s open source build system, that enables loading and linking of replacement code within debug builds without requiring a cold restart and greatly improves iteration speed when developing Android apps.
