Droidcon Berlin — Berlin, Germany

  • Successfully Publishing a Tested, Upgradeable and Documented Open Source Library 🎞 📄
    You’ve written some code, and you’d like to release it as Open Source. Congratulations!
    Publishing an Open Source library goes beyond just releasing your code on Github. New users with different use cases means preparing for the unpredictable. How do you ensure your code is safe and efficient? Is your code easy to read? Do you have a plan for upgrades in the future?
    This talk will look at best practices and showcase a checklist to follow when writing and publishing an Open Source Library, from the documentation to ensuring your library works as intended and doesn’t break applications using it.

  • Developing your CI Tools 🎞 📄
    Nowadays, setting up a basic unit and syntax testing pipeline for your mobile app has never been easier! That’s a great starting point, but what comes next? We can leverage the CI pipeline to do so much more! Things like automatic code generation and advanced static analysis—all with an aim to ensuring the reliability and performance of your applications.
  • Property Based Testing in practice (Workshop)
    On paper, everyone agrees that tests are important. And yet, more often than not, tests are neglected. In the rare case where we take the time to write them, more often than not it’s considered a cumbersome task, and given less attention than the "real code". This leads to a lot of code smell being written in tests, one of which is using hardcoded values.

  • Benchmarking your application 📄
    In 1974, Donald Knuth said that “premature optimization is the root of all evil (or at least most of it) in programming”. But optimizing without benchmarks would be like following your instinct trying to get to your destination with a map but without a compass; you hope that you’re going in the right direction, but could be wasting a lot of time and energy…
    Whether it is during development or at runtime, many tools exist to let you measure the performance of your applications. These measures can then be used to prioritize which parts to optimize first, as well as measure the performances gained (or lost) after a refactoring.

  • Benchmarking your application🎞 📄
    Back in 1974, Donald Knuth said that “premature optimization is the root of all evil (or at least most of it) in programming”. But optimization without benchmarks can be even worse than that. It’s like following a map without using a compass, and just trusting your instinct that you’re going in the right direction. Whether it is during development or at runtime, many tools exist to let you measure the performance of your applications. These measures can then be used to prioritize which parts to optimize first, as well as measure the performances gained (or lost) after a refactoring.

  • Rock the Gradle, Rule the world🎞 📄
    More often than none, an Android project's build.gradle files grow larger and more complex with time. This talk will look at the underappreciated buildSrc folder, which allows you to create plugins directly from your project, but also can help you make your build.gradle files cleaner and more readable.

  • Offline First Development (with Jérémy Bartolomeu Bonze) 🎞 📄
    As developers, more often than not, you have access to fast and reliable internet connection, all day long. But the users you target won't. Limited data plans, unreliable network coverage, commuting : those are real obstacle that your users will see daily. This means that network will only be available at some times, and not necessarily when the user wants to interact with your application.

  • Being an Ethical Developer🎞 📄
    With great power comes great responsibilities. In today’s world, developers definitely have a lot of power in their hands, shaping the apps we use every day on our phones and computers. More than ever developers need to know about the consequences of what they build, and help shape the way apps will be built tomorrow.

  • What's The Fuzz With Unit Tests (Lightning talk) 📄
    All my tests used to involve users named Alice and Bob. Aged 42. Working at FooBar Inc. The problem when using hard-coded values in your tests, means that you only test one single path of your code. Ever. During this talk, you will discover a fuzzy testing library to make your test use a wider range of data.

  • It's time to up your test game📄
    On the paper, everyone agrees that tests are important. And yet, more often than none, tests are still considered the poor cousin in the development industry. In the rare case when we actually take time to write them, we more often than not consider it a cumbersome task, and give it less thoughts than the "real code".
    But tests are often as important, if not more, as the code that will be shipped on the Play Store. After briefly explaining the basics of testing, this talk will go through various common mistakes and bad practices found in real-life unit tests, and will give techniques and tips to make those tests cleaner and better.
