Episode 109: Jazz Hands

Michael, Tor (not pictured), Romain (not pictured), and
Chet (not even present). Some podcasts are conversations.
Some are more like interrogations in a café.
In this episode, Tor and Chet Romain talked with Michael Wright from the Android Framework team. Michael works on input, display, power manager, and haptics, which are, by amazing coincidence, exactly what they talked about.

Episode 106: WorkManager & Navigation

Tor, Romain, Sumir, Ian, and Chet pose for a candid picture
far from the recording studio, when they finally realized 
they'd forgotten to take a picture in the studio earlier.
You'd think they'd have this process nailed by now, 
wouldn't you? I mean, 106 episodes; it's not like
it's new and all. Honestly, what level of professionalism
are we paying for here with this free service?
Romain and Chet talk with Sumir Kataria and Ian Lake about the latest developments in the new WorkManager and Navigation architecture components. WorkManager is now in beta and Navigation should be in beta Real Soon Now.

Alpha? Beta? Are these all Greek to you? We try to de-mystify this naming convention and talk about how we see development and release of architecture components in general.

Episode 105: Telephony

Tor, Romain, Robert, and Chet.
Note the winter coat; the temperatures in California had
plummeted that week all the way down into the lower 60s (F).
Brrrr!
Tor, Romain, and Chet talk with Robert Greenwalt from the Android Telephony team about how the phone actually works. And text. And data. And SIM cards. And carrier networks.

It turns out that communication is kind of a important feature for phones
