Keynote Presentation: SwiftUI/Combine & Jetpack Compose/Flow in the age of foldable.
Mobile development is going through major shifts as iOS transitions from Objective-C/UIKit -to-> Swift(UI)/Combine & Android shifts from Java/XML -to-> Kotlin Jetpack(Compose)/Flow. This is fueled by the coming era of foldables & we need new tools to help handle these devices. The idea of imperatively defining our UI & handling data flow becomes cumbersome if not impossible.
In this session, we will cover the transition from imperative to declarative programming on both iOS & Android. Both (SwiftUI & Jetpack Compose [unbundled toolkit]) are designed to simplify development & are a complete departure from the current model. We will go over the core design principles & data flow concepts. We will also demo the amazing tooling support provided by XCode & Android Studio. We end the session by showing how the data flow lends itself to the advanced Model View Intent (MVI) architecture. This is a very important talk for anyone looking to build iOS / Android apps in the near future.
Speaker Bio: Ash (Siamak Ashrafi) is an enthusiastic mobile developer, author, teacher, & speaker helping promote the ecosystem (patents, JavaOne Rock Star & 3x Amazon Code Ninja), currently providing developer feedback for Android Jetpack Compose (under NDA) & Technical Author of upcoming SwiftUI book. He is also a Data scientist @ TDI Biotech using machine learning (TensorFlow) to analyze biological data. CTO @ ZoeWave building physiologically intelligent clothing called ZoeWear.
