Laying Out Compose

Nick Butcher

Android Developer Relations Engineer


Jetpack Compose offers new layouts and modifiers for building UIs and a new highly performant layout model. In this talk, we’ll walk you through the layouts and modifiers provided out of the box, showing what is available and how to use them. We’ll then examine the compose layout model and demonstrate how you can easily build your own custom layouts. Finally we’ll show how to write performant layouts that minimize recompositions and can easily react to gestures or animations.
