Episode 135: Audio Podcast

Tor, Don, Chet, and Phil, on a video conference on Tor's
machine. VCs are critical to mitigating (but not actually
solving) latency issues with remote podcasts.
In this first ever full-remote episode, Tor and Chet discuss audio programming with Don Turner from the Android DevRel team, and Phil Burk from the Android Audio Framework team. They chat about Oboe, low-latency audio, audio performance in general, etc. And because Don and Phil know everything about audio, more time was spent before the recording discussing how to properly record the episode than was spent actually recording the episode.

Episode 133: Power Play

Kweku, Makoto, Amith, Chet, Romain, and Tor
In this episode, Chet talked with Amith Yamasani, Makoto Onuki, and Kweku Adams from the framework team about power management. We waxed poetic about the heuristics the system uses to kill tasks, doze mode and how the system tries to save battery, TrimMemory requests, JobScheduler (the underlying platform facility used by WorkManager), AppStandby buckets, and more.

Favorite word: OOMAdjust (Out of Memory Adjustment, but I far prefer the abbreviation)

Mike, Romain, Yigit, and Chet
In this episode, Chet and Romain talk with Yigit Boyar, from the Jetpack team, and Mike Nakhimovich from Dropbox. Mike and Yigit have been working on an Open Source library called Store.
