105: Jake Wharton on the Android Kotlin Guides

In this episode, we talk to Jake Wharton of Google on a recent Kotlin coding style guide that they released: the Android Kotlin Guides. In this episode, we pick his brains and ask him how he structured the guide, how he partitioned it to fit some of the idiosyncrasies of Kotlin, what some of the challenges were, when coming up with the guide and much more.

Jake’s one of the best out there and it’s always such a pleasure to have him on the show.

In this episode of Fragmented, Donn makes the pilgrimage to Microsoft Connect 2017. Connect is Microsoft’s annual developer conference where they announce a bunch of new products and services.

Donn got to interview a bunch of folks, and in this episode, we talk to two of them: Miguel De Icaza (leading open source proponent who also helped create Gnome, Mono, Xamarin etc.) and Simina Pasat (Program manager for Microsoft’s very new CI like service AppLink). Both of them were terrific guests and had quite a few gems to share, for us Android devs!

103: MVI pattern with Hannes Mosby Dorfmann

In this episode of Fragmented, we talk to Hannes Dorfmann about using the Model View Intent (MVI) pattern for Android. The MVI pattern was sparked through cycle.js (for javascript). Hannes took this pattern and tried to adapt it to Android. This pattern has gained a lot of traction and interest in the Android community.

In this episode, he breaks down the pattern for us. He tells us how to implement it, how it helps with testing, the benefits of the pattern and some of the pitfalls. Recording this episode was riveting for us and we dive into some juicy technical details. Listen on!

102: All Things Kotlin and notes from KotinConf

In this episode of Fragmented, Donn and I decompress. I had the pleasure of attending KotlinConf 2017 – Jetbrain’s very first conference dealing completely just on Kotlin. I have a quick chat after Day 1 with Donn, giving him the juicy updates.

We talk about how the conference was organized, some of the technical talks I attended (our thoughts on these…) and some of the folks I had the opportunity to meet.

Overall it was an amazing time at KotlinConf and if you want to vicariously enjoy it, listen on to the show.
