The introduction of Material Design was one of the more exciting things to happen to Android in recent years. The specifications describe a beautiful UI, but it can be challenging for developers to implement, particularly if they must support backwards compatibility. It is now easy to support the “Material” with the release of the ‘Android Design Support Library’ (and the previously released ‘AppCompat Library’). Developers now have the tools that make it simple to create Material-compliant apps that will work and look great on almost all devices (even ones running Eclair or Froyo). In this presentation Mike Wolfson highlights some important components of these libraries and demonstrates how to use them effectively. It is just the beginning for Material design – come learn about the important tools that make it easy to be part of the revolution!
