Monzo

Building a Modern Mobile Banking App

Just over 18 months ago we set out to build the ‘best bank on the planet’ from scratch. Today with 45,000 users and counting, our goals remain the same; to make managing your money as simple as ordering a pizza or a taxi. Join us for an introduction to the newly released Android beta, an insight into the challenges faced and a glance at the possibilities for the future, from the engineering team who made it happen.

Speakers: 

Emma Guy @emmaguy

Emma is an opinionated Android developer at Monzo, endlessly enthusiastic about making the app much better than its iOS counterpart. Prior to working at Monzo, she was at ustwo, working on a wide variety of different apps.

Ivan Carballo @ivacf

Ivan is an enthusiastic Android developer who has been building Android apps for over five years. Frustrated with traditional banking apps, he has recently joined the Monzo Android team to help create a modern banking experience that people love.

Songkick

Be together, not the same

The Android community is growing by leaps and bounds these days, connecting thousands of developers with values like openness, respect, and diversity. But what can we do to make sure these values are maintained? How can we contribute to building a strong culture?
​Sometimes developers are too shy to share their code or their findings. They see some opinionated big names in the community arguing on tech choices or best practices and they might be too scared to step in with their work.
This talk provides a short walk through the past few years to highlight how the developer community has evolved. Then we will see what the definition of a community is, what keeps people connected, and how this applies in the Android community. Finally we will see how you can contribute to make the culture more fair and supportive, and make everyone feel more part of the community.

Speakers: 

Anastasia Lopez @AnastasiaLopezD

Anastasia Lopez is a very passionate Software Engineer, working @Songkick as an Android developer. She like cupcakes, chocolate, and all types of sweets, which is probably what led her to the Android world.

Romain Piel @_rpiel 

Romain is a passionate Android developer who has been building apps since Android Froyo. He is currently working for Songkick as a happy Android developer. In the past he worked for Microsoft as well as building useless /fun apps with GIFs and animations.
