Episode 145: Grab that Dagger by the Hilt

Eric, Dany, and Romain. Chet not represented to hide the
confused look he had on his face during the entire recording.
We're injecting dependencies! In this episode, Chet and Romain are joined by Daniel Santiago from Jetpack, and Eric Chang from Dagger to talk about Hilt. Hilt builds on Dagger for form Android's new recommended way to perform dependency injection. And it's also a great opportunity for Chet and Romain to display their lack of knowledge in that space.

Episode 139: AndroidX. Jetpack. AndroidX. Jetpack. Whatever.

Romain, Chet, Alan, Nick, and a little tiny Tor
in the upper-right corner
In this episode, Romain, Chet and Tor talked with Nick Anthony and Alan Viverette from the AndroidX team about... AndroidX. And Jetpack. And androidx. (Spoiler alert: androidx is the set of libraries. Jetpack is that... plus opinionated guidance. AndroidX is the name of the team that ships this stuff).

We also talked about the release cadence (currently every two weeks, up from every-several-months a couple of years ago), the standards for release naming/versioning, API standards, and everything else in the world of AndroidX infrastructure and release.
