[Softbinator] Building a career in Android Development

As an Android developer I learned that when I develop an app it is not about me, it is about the users who will interact with the app I build. The quality of the code and also the involvement to deliver high-quality features are reflected in the experience of our users.


As a team leader, I understood better than launching an app is a team effort and our way to collaborate, our shared vision will have an important impact on the success of a product.


In this talk, I’m going to cover some of the lessons I learned along the way and I will present a road-map that in my opinion should be crossed by each Android developer. We will talk about Kotlin, how to write Clean Code in Kotlin, guidelines in building the app architecture, and how to create an achievable learning plan.
