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)
