Announced and released at Google I/O 2013, Volley is a powerful library that makes common, complex networking tasks vastly simpler. Even better, it is highly customizable and extendable, allowing for plenty of flexibility to work with your app's requirements. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of great documentation on how to use Volley, especially when you get past the most basic use cases. At Mobiata, Volley played a central role in the re-architecture of FlightTrack in 2013. Scott Weber, lead developer on the project, will show you how to get started with Volley and how to leverage its power to go beyond just loading images from the network.
