Discovering Material 3 for Android
13:40 > 40 min
Material 3 was announced on October 28, 2021, and how come we developers don't seem to be in a rush to transition to Material 3?
Is the adoption slow because our designers don't see much value in it or because we developers are already putting our efforts into a transition to Jetpack Compose?
In this talk, we will see how Material Design has evolved over the year and we will provide in deep dive into Material 3. We will then delve into the new components and patterns introduced in Material 3, such as the new `SearchBar`, `DatePicker`, and `BottomSheet`. We will also discuss how Material 3 supports the latest Android platform features, including a foldable device theming system. We will explore how Material 3 can be used to enhance user experience.

One common task in Android app development is working with Date object, and Kotlin provides several options for managing it.
In this talk, we will explore the different ways to represent and manipulate dates in Kotlin, including using the built-in java.util.Date class, the third-party Joda-Time library, and the java.time package introduced in Java 8.
We will also discuss best practices for formatting and displaying dates to the user, and handling time zones and daylight saving time. By the end of this talk, attendees will have a strong understanding of how to effectively manage dates in their Kotlin Android apps.
