Episode 154: It's a Wrap!

This episode is dedicated to the memory of our dear friend and colleague, Carl Quinn.

Our last episode of the year arrives just in time for the holiday season. In this episode, Tor, Chet, and Romain go over everything that happened in 2020, both good and bad. We look back at how conferences have been impacted by the pandemic, why Android Studio changed its versioning scheme, the new tools and libraries that were released, etc.

We would like to thank all of our listeners for their continued support. We'll be back in early 2021 with more episodes and new guests!

Episode 153: Ok, Ok, Ok

Romain, Tor, and Chet talked with Jesse Wilson from Square. Jesse has worked on several popular open-source libraries, including OkHttp, Okio, and [Ok]Moshi. We talk about those libraries, and others, and about Android, library, framework and Kotlin development. And about that nasty habit some engineers have of turning a feature request or minor annoyance into a project of creating a new open-source library instead.

Favorite quote, from Jesse:
"I started with 2k. Someone told me 8k was faster."

Episode 151: Paging3

Chet, Dustin, Chris, and Romain.
(Tor not pictured. Because he wasn't there)
Romain and Chet talked with Dustin Lam and Chris Craik from the Toolkit team about Paging3.

Paging3 (currently in alpha) is a complete rewrite of (wait for it...) Paging2, using Kotlin, coroutines, and Flow for optimal implementation and APIs. (But note that there are also APIs for developers using the Java programming language and/or RxJava, so take your pick). We talk about Paging, the asynchronous work that made coroutines an obvious choice for the implementation, recent and future features, and API design in general.
