Making Dogfood Builds Testable and Fun

Making Dogfood Builds Testable and Fun

Android apps are fun to dogfood but sometimes complex to configure for testers. To be developed fast, apps need internal builds that don't rely on server teams. To test effectively, internal testers need options to force edge cases and navigate quickly.

To receive feedback, developers need to provide discoverable options to send reports. Tools like Dagger and Gradle build variants have made these wishes a reality for many, and Eric will also dig into how everyone can retrofit existing projects to be quickly configurable.

Learn creative ways to get runtime bindings and debug options up and running in Android apps, old and new.
