    DivKit is a wonderful development

    These days, every major application has something that changes from the server configuration. Reports about Server Driven UI have been appearing for several years now. Olga's team went about the same way as everyone else - they wrote their own designer component. But 4 years ago it became insufficient, and so we wrote "our own HTML". Olga will talk about the development and details of DivKit, an open source framework from Yandex.

    Aurora OS through the eyes of an Android and iOS developer

That is why the speaker decided to look at alternative mobile OSs from Russia and start with the most promising one: Aurora OS. The talk will cover the technology on which applications are written, approaches in the OS, best practices, architecture building, navigation, UI/UX, DI, etc.

    Why KMM is not а crossplatform?

    Alexander has been making applications using KMM technology in production for a year and a half. In the talk, he will discuss the concept of KMM and its fundamental differences from other cross-platform solutions.

    The talk will be aimed at developers who are not familiar with KMM or have not studied the structure of this technology. First, the speaker will touch on known disadvantages of crossplatform, and then show how Kotlin Multiplatform solves them. Then there will be specifics: what can be made common between the platforms and what not, and how much can be gained from using KMM in the end.

    What peculiarities we encountered when creating an alternative app store in Russia

    The speaker will tell how they created and launched the beta version of the Russian mobile app store for Android in 1.5 months together with the largest IT companies. He will share the process of creating the store in the absence of a local operating system and other technical and cognitive difficulties and limitations. He will list the technologies that are used to develop the store and implement the web store, developer console, payment, push notifications, and other features.

    The talk is primarily aimed at developers, but will be useful to anyone interested in the topic of import substitution.

    How to avoid chaos: navigation as a separate logical level

    Android has frameworks and libraries for building navigation, but they don't make it independent enough and less related to the presentation layer. This is a problem, because as the project grows, some of the responsibility for navigation spreads across different modules, and it all becomes more difficult to manage.

    The LANG project (one of Skyeng's mobile English learning products) took the existing structure to support multimodularity and refined it. This structure allows the flexible use of modules and completely decouples the dependence of modules on each other. This approach to navigation does not depend on the growth of the number of nesting levels, which also keeps development labor costs closer to a direct correlation of development time with the scale of business requirements.

    To be or not to be a senior

    In modern development there is such a subjective concept as senior. One thing can be said about him for sure - he is expensive on the market. But who is he really? What can he do?

    One often gets the impression that this is a character with superpowers, whose level is almost impossible to reach. Most likely, this is not the case. And despite all the subjectivity of such a notion, specialists of this level surely have a certain set of characteristics that help determine exactly what this engineer is.

    In this discussion let's try to find this very "set" and figure out how to become a senior, what exactly he does, what mistakes he makes, what skills he has and how to develop as such a specialist. And all this on the example of software engineers in Android applications.

    How to hack an interview

    We would like to see job interviews as a perfect objective assessment of skills, but in reality things are somewhat different. Like on a date, there you also have to make a good impression of yourself. Sometimes an experienced professional can be embarrassed, while a newcomer will prove himself right away.

    How to show your best side? Which sections in interviews are truly necessary and useful, and which are not? How do you tell the difference between a middling and a junky? Is it worth doing an interview if you already know the candidate in the job and your opinion of him or her is already formed? Let's get to the bottom of all this and more.

    How I learned to stop worrying and love SwiftUI

    How we were able to make friends between SwiftUI and UIKit design system and collections, thereby giving developers the opportunity to choose what to use to implement the UI without any restrictions (well, almost). It will be interesting for those who want to try SwiftUI in production, but are afraid to do it.

    Perspectives on platforms: who will occupy the main niche, what will everyone work on?

    Which mobile OS is the future? And how will we develop - natively or cross-platform? Flutter or KMM? Or maybe even PWA?

    The debate about the future of platforms goes on forever. And it is clear that this is partly a guessing game, so you should not treat them as a strict confident predictions. But that does not mean that such discussions are useless. Listening to the arguments of different sides, you can learn a lot of interesting nuances, and look at the situation from different angles. And then, it's just fun! So at this BoF session, let's rub the platforms' bones.

    At the BoF, in contrast to talks and roundtables, there is no division into participants and presenters: here everyone interacts with each other as equals. The main thing is not to off-topic and discuss the topic.
