220: Turbo Native for Android and Hotwire with Jay Ohms

Download

In this episode, Donn talks to Jay Ohms about Turbo Native for Android, Hotwire, and how to build apps faster with Hotwire, Turbo, Stimulus, and Strata. Jay is an Android developer at Basecamp.com and Hey.com and has been building Hey with Android Turbo since it has been released (he’s one of the developers of it).

You’ll learn what Hotwire is, how to use it with Android Turbo (and Stimulus and Strata) and how you can create apps faster and more maintainable by marrying the concepts of the web with native code. It’s a fascinating technology, and one that Donn will be using very shortly for a SaaS product he’s working on.

You’ll run into various different coding conventions throughout your career. Sometimes it’s as an employee, sometimes it’s as a freelancer or consultant or just a small side project.
