Improve your Android architecture by using coroutines

Andreas Færøvig Olsen

Short talk - in English

Kotlin is considered a simple language to learn for Java developers. However, the first time you look at coroutine code, you might get a puzzled look on your face and wonder what this is all about.

Coroutines enable you to write sequential code instead of callbacks for async tasks. In this talk we will explore the possibilities of coroutines and how we can use them together with Android Architecture Components and the MVVM pattern. Introducing coroutines can be done gradually and bring value to an existing app in a short amount of time.

Some knowledge of Android development is recommended.
