Going With the Flow -- Using Coroutines 1.3.x

Rick Busarow

Senior Android Developer

Rick is a Senior Android Developer at Milwaukee Tool. He loves discussing application architecture, anything Kotlin, and testing.


Let’s talk reactive coroutines. The coroutines 1.3.0 release graduated Flow to stable, and introduced breaking changes to the Channel api. When do we use Channels, and when do we use Flows? How do we maintain structured concurrency in our code, and how do we test it? Do we need to re-write our apps into MVFlow? In this talk, we’ll evaluate the options for reactive programming with coroutines. We’ll go over Android-specific problems and how to fit their solutions into any existing architecture.
