Building a Continuous testing environment for Android Performance

Performance improvements in your application shouldn’t be put off until the last minute! But sadly, performance profiling & tooling is still pretty manual and archaic. In this talk, Colt McAnlis will walk through how to build a automated perf-testing environment for your code. Then, you can run tests daily, weekly, or when your co-worker checks in their code (you know the one.. they like to use ENUMs everywhere….)

Colt McAnlis is a Developer Advocate at Google focusing on Performance & Compression; Before that, he was a graphics programmer in the games industry working at BlizzardMicrosoft (Ensemble), and Petroglyph. He’s been an Adjunct Professor at SMU Guildhall, a UDACITY instructor (twice), and a Book Author. When he’s not working with developers, Colt spends his time preparing for an invasion of giant ants from outer space.

Deep Link Dispatch on Android

Deep links are great opportunities to engage users by linking them to deeper content within an application. While Android provides mechanisms to handle deep links, it’s not perfect and leaves opportunity to improve how deep links are managed. We’ll present our tool, Deep Link Dispatch, and demonstrate how Airbnb handles deep links in a structured and convenient way.

Christian Deonier is a member of the Airbnb Android team focused on foundation for features and architecture of the application. He is also the co-creator of DeepLinkDispatch, an Android library for deep links. Before joining Airbnb, he focused on making mobile applications on both iOS and Android, and also worked at Oracle. In his free time, he races cars and, true to Airbnb, travels frequently.

Localization on iOS

Airbnb is an international company that aims to bring a local experience to all of our users. Presenting information in a way that is appropriate for the user’s locale is crucial.
