Episode 54: AAPT

In this episode, Chet and Tor talk with Adam Lesinski from the Android framework team. Adam works on aapt (Android Asset Packaging Tool), which compiles the resources used by the framework and for apps. Listen in to learn more about how it works, as well as some of the optional features that aapt provides that you could take advantage of. He also might talk about some of the future development going on for more robust and performant tools. Maybe.
