Droidcon Lisbon: RxJava & Coroutines: A Practical Analysis

Kotlin has taken the Android world by storm, and is quickly becoming the most popular language of choice. With Coroutines now stable, does it make sense to replace your RxJava implementations for Coroutines?

Despite the hype, it may not make sense to jump on the bandwagon just yet. RxJava has already proven its stability and usefulness, and a comparison between the two frameworks shows that they are simply better suited for different purposes.

In this talk you’ll learn:
- how to utilise the strengths of each framework
- how to correctly choose the best solution for the requirements of your project
- whether it may be beneficial to migrate or run them concurrently
- and how you can start doing so for your project
