Android code tends to grow big and fat. It’s time for a diet!
With Eclipse’s Xtend you can cut down the amount of code significantly and get a more readable and maintainable codebase as a result. Xtend is a statically typed programming language that complements Java. It is translated to readable Java source code, so you have 100% control over what’s going on and can even use all of your beloved Java tools.
In this session you’ll learn how Xtend’s powerful features increase developer productivity in Android projects. We will go through typical Android idioms and challenges and explain how these can be solved elegantly with Xtend. This session will include a lot of live coding.
