Talk: UI components, layouts made simple.

As developers, we often try to minimise redundant work and code. A few months back, we decided to apply the same principles to our UI.

In this talk, we will go through how we reduced boilerplate to the minimum by building our UI components library. From the inception with our UX team, creating a design system, to working on our Android implementation. We will see how you can apply the same principles to your project, the challenges we faced while doing it and the benefits of this approach.

Speaker: Maxime Mazzone

Maxime has been working on Android since the early days of Android and his now working at Babylon Health on their upcoming Android UX. He also likes playing with Flutter and ML projects in his free time.

Talk: Why React Native teams need Android developers?

React Native is an awesome cross-platform solution with which you can just write once (in Javascript) and run anywhere, or… is it?
In this talk I’m gonna show you some real-life examples of why React Native projects still need from Android experts if they want to create really amazing apps and I’ll share with you some of the things I’ve learnt working as an Android developer in the React Native infrastructure team at Skyscanner.

Speaker: Leandro Mazzuquini

Leandro Mazzuquini is an Android engineer who has been developing Android apps since the dark days of Android 1.5. He has moved to London all the way from Argentina to work at Skyscanner where he’s taking care of the Android side of things of React Native infrastructure.
