7:50-8:30pm 50 “Real World” NOT “Hello World” native mobile development! - Siamak Ashrafi
Martin Omander works for Google in Mountain View, California. His job in the Developer Relations team is to support awesome developer communities, like the Google Developer Groups. On his spare time he manages to sneak in some programming, usually writing HTML5 apps running on top of Firebase. Before Google, Martin worked at string of startups in Silicon Valley as a software engineer.
“Real World” NOT “Hello World” native mobile development!: The current way native mobile development is taught is at best incomplete and at worst completely misinformative. This session will be presenting a more wholistic way of learning or expanding a developer's understanding of building for native mobile Android. It is “real world” not “hello world”. We begin by showing the absolute beginner the highest quality resources needed to learn (free). Then the session discusses what most mobile developers wish they knew before they started. The best libraries, tools, tips, tricks and common mistakes to avoid before writing the first line of code. Then we conclude by reviewing how major companies develop mobile apps internally by exploring their open source projects and current publications regarding the latest advancements in native Android mobile development.
The distinguishing point of this session is it covers how industry builds apps which is different than how most teach it.
Siamak Ashrafi CTO @ ZoeWave building physiologically intelligent clothing (technology patents) and a researcher @ TDI working on medical biomarkers (publications / presentations).
