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

Tor and Romain working hard in the studio while

Episode 103: Tor, Romain, and Chet Talk about Stuff

Tor, Romain, and Chet, caught in a totally
candid and unexpected photo while working
hard in the recording studio.
Tor and Romain and Chet completely failed to get a guest for this show. But fortunately, there was a bunch of stuff happening that they talked about instead. KotlinConf, GDG DevFest Ukraine, Droidcon UK, garbage collection,  tech talks, comedy talks, Android Studio releases, new Pixel phones, photography, selfies, and more. We should have a guest-fail more often!
