Android Internal Library Dependency Management with Kelly Shuster

As your app code gets larger and more complex, it makes sense to break your project out into smaller reusable components. But what’s the best way to do this? How can you clearly version your internal libraries? What kind of setup and maintenance can you expect? How much could it slow down development time? In this talk we’ll dive into the various ways you can manage internal library dependencies. We’ll chat about the current state of Android dependency management, Gradle library modules, Git submodules, and creating a private maven repository in Artifactory. The speaker will share real-world examples, and the pros and cons of each approach.

About the Droids 

Each 3rd Wednesday of the month, we meet at IBM in the DTC or at POSSIBLE Mobile downtown. From 5:30-6pm we will socialize and enjoy food and drinks. At 6pm we will typically have a speaker giving a presentation about an interesting and informative Android development topic. If you are a new or experienced Android developer, or just someone that is curious about Android development, we hope you will join us and become a regular participant!
