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.
