Building Mobile Apps At Scale

Kurt Nelson

Senior Software Engineer & Android Xoogler

As a mobile team grows in headcount, they must tackle new types of challenges. I will be sharing what problems companies like Google and Uber encounter and how they solve them, from modularization to frameworks to different built tooling. I will also discuss why many of these companies are often slow to adopt new tooling such as Jetpack Compose, Coroutines, and Kotlin.

Kurt has been working with Android at the framework and application-level since 2010 and bought a Motorola Xoom. At Google, he worked on Glass, Google Buds, and the internal application framework used by apps such as Tez & Google Go. He has taught Android to Software Engineers at many top tech companies as a Big Nerd Ranch instructor.
He currently lives in SF and works as a freelance engineer.
