I recently gave a talk and live code-along session that presented an introduction to Jetpack Compose. The talk was aimed at introducing developers of all levels to Jetpack Compose, so that we could learn how to build a starter Android app using this new UI technology. We started with an empty Android app, and ended with a fully-functioning Hacker News client that fetched top stories and let users save their favorite articles.
If you're interested in Jetpack Compose, and want to get started with a high-level intro and a straightforward example app, then check out my repo on GitHub -
hn-compose. It includes the slides from my talk, as well as a multi-part code example that walks through the process of building out our Hacker News client.
