Embracing AI for Android App Development: The Next Revolution

Abstract:

Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing the world, and the field of Android app development is no exception. AI can be used to improve the performance, user experience, and security of Android apps. In this keynote talk, I will discuss how AI is revolutionizing Android app development and how devs can start using it in their apps.

I will cover the following topics:

- Making the workforce ready for AI
- Improving Developer productivity using AI
- The benefits of using AI for Android app development
- The future of AI in Android app development
- I will also showcase the usage of Studio Bot inside Android Studio. Studio Bot is a new AI-powered tool that can help you with a variety of tasks in Android development, such as writing code, finding bugs, and testing your app.

Audience:

This talk is intended for Android developers who are interested in learning about the generative AI technologies and how they can be used to improve their apps. No prior experience with AI is required.

Takeaways:

By the end of this talk, attendees will be able to:

- Understand the benefits of using AI for Android app development
- Learn how to use Studio Bot to improve their Android development workflow

Monitor App performance using Jetpack Benchmark

Android apps are becoming increasingly complex, and it can be difficult to ensure that they perform well. Jetpack Benchmark is a Jetpack library that helps you measure the performance of your Android app code. It is part of Android SDK and can be used to benchmark your code.

In this talk, I will discuss how to use Jetpack Benchmark to measure the performance of an Android app. I will cover both macro and micro benchmark testcases, and I will show how to interpret the results of the benchmarks. I will also discuss some of the best practices for improving the performance of your Android app.

Audience:

This talk is intended for Android developers who are interested in improving the performance of their apps. No prior experience with Jetpack Benchmark is required.

Agenda:

-Introduction to Jetpack Benchmark
-Macrobenchmark testcases
-Microbenchmark testcases
-Interpreting benchmark results
-Best practices for improving performance

Takeaways:

By the end of this talk, attendees will be able to:

-Understand how to use Jetpack Benchmark to measure the performance of their Android app
-Create macro and micro benchmark testcases
-Interpret the results of their benchmarks
-Apply best practices for improving the performance of their Android app

Identify Android App Startup time issues

Reducing App startup time is crucial for improving user experience and retaining your user base in the long run.
It is important for an Android developer to understand what are the common issues for slower app startup time and how to discover those using the built int tools provided by Android Studio.

This talk will cover:
1. CPU flame charts.
2. CPU profiler and Memory profiler in Android Studio.
3. How to read a CPU flame chart for an Android app and discover issues with app startup time.
4. All the slides content will be explained using Kotlin code in Android Studio.

Attendees will learn:
1. What is the mental model for measuring performance of an Android app.
2. How to profile an Android app.
3. How to identify and reduce app startup time in order to improve the user experience.

Profiling Android Apps

The Android Profiler tools provide real-time data to help you to understand how your app uses CPU, memory, network, and battery resources.

I will be explaining the usage of all the profiler tools available in Android Studio and how could we monitor the performance of Android apps.

Few details of the talk will include:

Profile CPU activity and traces with CPU Profiler
Profile the Java heap and memory allocations with Memory Profiler
Profile network traffic with Network Profiler
Profile energy usage with Energy Profiler
