088: Offensive programming with Piwai from Square

In this episode of Fragmented we talk to our friend Piwai from Square.

Piwai’s a pro at testing and breaking apps (he built LeakCanary – so not terribly unexpected). He teaches us some strategies on debugging app crashes and briefs us on this concept he calls “offensive programming” which has helped him a lot with his Android development.

It’s good stuff and we hope you enjoy the show.

In this episode, we talk to Dan Kim about Kotlin. Dan is an Android developer at the company Basecamp and has some great Kotlin posts on the company’s famous blog Signal Vs Noise. He was pretty early, on the Kotlin train and has been working with the new language for quite sometime now.

Instead of trying to go into every single detail about Kotlin, the nuances of the language, it’s syntax etc. we take a more general approach and talk about starting out on Kotlin, how does on go about migrating an Android codebase to Kotlin, what are things we should watch out for when using the language. This and a whole lot more!
