Android's Architecture Components Version 0.1 Released

Subscribers now have access to the inaugural release of Android’s Architecture Components, known as Version 0.1, in PDF, EPUB, and MOBI/Kindle formats. Just log into your Warescription page and download away, or set up an account and subscribe!

As I mentioned two weeks ago, when I released Version 0.1 of GraphQL and Android, I plan to break topics out into their own book when they are “bigger than a breadbox”.

Google released the Architecture Components to much fanfare at Google I|O 2017. This book will explore these components in depth, identifying their pros and cons, along with how to apply them to your Android projects. Particular emphasis will be placed on Room, given its comparative complexity.

This first beta version of the book covers the basics of using the Architecture Components. This book will evolve fairly rapidly over the next few months, to cover topics like integration with RxJava and data binding, polymorphic Room relations, and packaging databases with your app. Stay tuned to this blog, the @CommonsWare Twitter feed, etc. for announcements about updates.

Again, if you have any questions or concerns, drop me a line.
