about the talk

Jetpack Compose is a new and booming thing! You’re probably looking for samples, documentation, and open-source projects to learn the best practices and see just how good it is. Well, look no more! :]

In this talk, we’ll look at how the Stream team built the Jetpack Compose Chat SDK, which offers a ton of customisation and reusability when building Chat apps. We’ll also take a look at our component design system and what decisions we’ve made to improve the ease of use of our SDK.

If you’re looking to see how Compose is used in production and what things you should watch out for, this is the talk for you!
