046: okJesse – A deep discussion on okHttp, okio and Retrofit

Everyone loves Retrofit & okHttp. But how did they come about? Why ok? What was the need for such libraries? We went knocking on the doors of Square trying to find the answers to these question. We were lucky cause we found probably the nicest most brilliant Android/Java developer of our times – our good friend Jesse Wilson and without surprise, he crushes it!

He gives us the scoop on the origin stories of these amazing libraries and also gives us insight into okio and why it’s such a game changer today.
