• Android Tech Talks #23
    Hey there, Let's meet again. Two presentations so far, but C4P is still open - let us know if you would like to speak. We will start getting Smali knowledge about Kotlin Coroutines and how do they work under the hood. Bio: Aleksander Piotrowski Father of two beautiful chihuahuas, Android dev in free time. Title: How do coroutines REALLY work underneath. Description: In my presentation we will look under the hood of coroutines to see how they are implemented. We will see what magic is being used by coroutines (if any). After that our local Android GDE will demystify Android memory management! Bio: Mateusz Herych Android Tech Lead at IG, GDE for Android, father of twins and an avid fan of rail transportation Title: Android memory management - how, when and why does Android decide to kill your app. Description: Android is often ruthless towards our apps. As soon as the user puts them in the background, we suddenly join the list of apps to kill. While we all know about this, making sure our code supports post-process death resurrection isn't a trivial task. Attend this talk to learn: - Best practices for handling process death - Myth of Don't Keep Activities - What Android handles for you for free - ... and what it doesn't. - How to rebuild the state of your application-scoped/staticly-kept app components - and how to properly test it As always, pizza & beer/drinks are included. See you there!

  • Android Tech Talks #21
    The next Android Tech Talks meetup is here! Two presentations this time: We will start getting some knowledge about Git best practises. Bio: Filip Misztal Android Developer since 2013, working in Schibsted Tech Polska. In love with delivering value to People, testing freak, Kotlin enthusiast, Git fan, that is taking his first steps as a speaker. Sailor & tourist after stepping away from a desk. Title: Create significant history - every day Description: During my presentation, I want to share some good practices regarding git usage in a long-lasting project. I will go through some real-life scenarios to show You that with a small effort you and your colleagues can get much more from your project `git log`. After that we will have a chance to get familiar with AndroidKeystore to keep our secrets! Bio: Tomek Masłoń Software engineer with 10 years of experience. Althought, at work happens to write code for bigger machines, his passion has always been pocket size devices. With strong embedded background currently enjoying implementing more user level interface for Android. He touched some aspects of data security on smartcards and mobile devices. Title: Keeping your secrets - What AndroidKeystore can or can’t do for you? Description: In recent years millions of people have been affected by hackers who had leaked their personal data into the Web. It's not always a good idea to carefree upload our data into a cloud and trust security that it provides. We as developers should take a use of features that are supplied by the system that we work on. I will start with presenting the evolution of data security on Android. We will discuss hardware backed security in old times and what is used currently. I'd also like to familiarize you with Trusted Execution Environment(TEE) and how the system supports it. Finally we will take a look at more practical use of what AndroidKeystore API has to offer and what is the alternative. See you soon Geeks!
