Android, Communities and You

Android, Communities and You

Each person has a unique set of skills, stories, experiences and knowledge. We only have a set amount of time to learn and do the things we love. Even though learning individually is an option, why not learn together to speed up the process?
In this talk Alex will go through his personal journey through Android, how this journey affected his learnings, and suggest ways on how you can improve your way of learnings through solo and community activities.
