Displaying and editing text is an essential part of every application. In this talk you'll learn best practices for typography and text in Jetpack Compose as well as some things to avoid to ensure editable text ends up in order (not "ni oderr"). Covering both how to use it as well as implementation details, after this talk you'll be a Compose text-pert.
