Changes in the Android world happen so rapidly. There isn’t one right way to do something and documentation doesn’t always keep up. And sometimes you may feel that you can’t keep up. So how do you as a developer - keep up with an ever-changing field, make sure your workplace and community catch up, make sure you are using the right tools to make beautiful apps a reality, and work with people from design, product and/or marketing who may not have worked on the Android ecosystem before? Let’s talk about how you can be an Android developer who brings teams and communities together.
