While high-end Android devices have come a long way in the past few years, apps still run in constrained environments compared to desktop or server brethren. And Android is used for many low-end devices in emerging markets as well. In this half-day workshop, we will examine
how you can:
- Reduce your app's memory use, to fit within Android's heap limit without hitting the dreaded OutOfMemoryError
- How to determine where the "jank" is in your UI, due to too much CPU usage on the wrong threads, and how to fix it
- Where to try to trim back your consumption of power, bandwidth, and other limited device resources
Attendees should have basic Android app development experience. Attendees will walk away with a set of action items of things to test, plus understanding of how to conduct the testing.
