Android Lint is an extremely useful tool that scans your app for hundreds of potential bugs and common issues. But Lint can do much more for advanced users. In this talk I'll show how we use custom lint checks at Lyft to promote best practices and encourage consistent design across our apps, and will also show you how to write them from scratch.
