Android UIs at Scale: UI Architecture in the Compose world

Android UIs are experiencing a paradigm shift with the advent of Jetpack Compose, and it’s necessary for us to prepare for it.

As we navigate these weird times for UI development in Android, we need to have a strategy in place to adopt Compose, but how can we embrace Compose, currently in beta, while maintaining our current UI in a good state? How does an architecture that plays nice with Views and Composables look like?

In this session I will describe the mechanisms that we use at Twitter to create UI components. I will explain how we manage their reusability and encapsulation, how our stateful UI components look like, how they work with Android Views and Composables and how the migration path between them.
