Frameworks for Coding Confidence

by Luke St.Clair

Published March 20, 2016 in Programming

As a mobile codebase grows and evolves, it becomes increasingly difficult to make large changes with confidence and speed. Unintended side effects, strange lifecycles, memory leaks, error-cases, and poor code cohesion work together to quickly make a mess of many applications as they grow. This talk will cover some of the techniques Uber has used to allow for changes in a tightly integrated application with confidence, including tools like Dagger 2, static analysis, and annotation processing. We’ll show you how these techniques and tools reinforce each other by demonstrating some concrete anti-patterns that have scaled poorly in the past, as well as how you can combine these new techniques to prevent entire classes of issues in the future.
