Writing Agile APKs
Learn how libraries like ActionBarSherlock, ViewPagerIndicator, NineOldAndroids and other creatively named libraries alleviate the burden of dealing with platform differences yourself. Google’s support library creates a phenomenal starting point for providing post-Honeycomb style content management. What is missing, however, is a bit of visual sugar to allow for leveraging things like animation and the action bar paradigm without having to juggle native class availability across various API levels.
With minimal effort, we can instead call on third-party libraries to step up and handle these implementations, which will allow you, the developer, more time to focus on making the content of your app the best it can be! This session will include a live coding example, demos, use cases, and a showcase of existing implementations of the libraries covered.
