🗣Talk one: Fantastic Fragments and How to Test Them: The Rise of the Constructor.

Let’s dive into the latest changes and additions in the AndroidX libraries regarding Android Fragments, tools for testing them in an isolated way and other useful things like Navigation. All glued by our beloved Kotlin, of course!

Speaker: Alex Facciorusso

Currently working as Senior Android Developer at Karmarama (Accenture Interactive), Alex started programming very soon. From Basic (the Commodore 64 one) to Kotlin, he always loves to learn about new languages, libraries, platforms, paradigms etc. He never misses a chance to spread the Kotlin word.



🗣Talk two: Mobile App Security at Starling Bank

As an Android developer how do you protect your app from modification and keep business secrets safe? In this talk, I’ll be sharing some experience on mobile app security; ranging from stored data encryption to certificate pinning, integrity checks, root detection, debugger detection… as well as some of the commercially available solutions or how to build in-house ones.

Speaker: Vasiliy Siminov

Had a passion for software development for the past 17 years, 13 years of which have shaped my career. 7 years of Android experience and 3 years building Starling Bank’s award-winning Android app. Experienced within a range of different languages and technologies.
