In November, Android developer, architect, and mentor Ryan Simon gives a talk I've been waiting years for: modern Android development. Android is one of the biggest achievements in Java's history, so come learn what mobile development looks like today!


6:30 Networking
7:00 Announcements, talk, and JetBrains raffle
8:30 Dinner, drinks, and more discussion

Dinner takes place just down the street at El Torito Grill:

Mobile phones are constantly evolving, and Android is the operating system at the forefront of that innovation. As developers, we must stay vigilant in an ever-changing industry.

Join us as we discuss what development for native Android apps is all about in 2019. We’ll cover exciting hardware advances like dual displays and foldables, plus all the latest in developer tools.

By the end of the night, you should be up-to-date on best practices for modern Android development, and have a grasp of what the future holds for the platform.

Ryan Simon is a Senior Android Engineer and Architect at Weedmaps. Ryan’s always pushing for the latest in Android tooling and pragmatic programming practices for his teams.

He also runs OC Kotlin Krew, an Irvine-based Meetup group focused on practical and fun programming with Kotlin.
