Jetpack Compose: What Does it Mean for U and I? - Yousuf Haque & Zach Smith

Jetpack compose is the first meaningful departure from the original android UI toolkit. Declarative UI rendering is not something we've ever had from the Android framework. Come take a stroll through the history of UI development on Android and the journey towards Jetpack compose. We'll take a look at first party Android UI options, third party Android UI options, and relevant UI frameworks from other platforms such as React and SwiftUI.
