Building a framework with Clean Architecture

Abstract -Over the last year there has been a lot of buzz about Clean Architecture in the Android community, but what's Clean Architecture? How does it work? And should I be using it? Recently at Badoo, we decided to rewrite our messenger component and in parallel to release and open source chat framework (Chateau) for adding or improving chat in any Android app. Over the years this core piece of functionality in our app has become large and unwieldy. We wanted to take a fresh approach to try and prevent this from happening again. We choose to use Clean Architecture to achieve our goal.

This talk intends to share my journey from theory to implementation in an application with over 100 million downloads. By the end, you should not only understand what Clean Architecture is, but how to implement it, and whether you should.

Speaker: Rich King 

Senior Android developer with more than 7 years’ experience creating awesome Android apps. Based in London where he works for Badoo.

Presentation Patterns Using Rx

Abstract:  When creating an Android app there are a lot of design patterns for the presentation layer that you can use like: MVVM, MVP, MVC. These can be implemented in several different ways using Rx. In the talk we will explore Reactive MVP and MVVM using Rx and their pros and cons.
