In this talk, we will take a deep dive into the history of Android UI and witness how it has evolved over the years. We will start from Activity UI Java codes, move to XML, explore Data Binding, and, finally, reach the top with Jetpack Compose.

We will then share our insights and experience with Compose, focusing on its impact on Android UI development and its potential evolution. We will analyse what could be improved and explore alternative technologies that may replace it in the future.

Finally, we'll end by discussing what's next for Android UI development beyond Jetpack Compose. We'll look at emerging trends and technologies that are likely to shape the future of Android UI development, and what developers can do to stay ahead of the curve.

By the end of this talk, you'll have a comprehensive understanding of the history of Android UI development, transition to Jetpack Compose, and the exciting potential of future developments in this field.
