Session abstract: 

Developing for Android has drastically changed over the last few years.
We now have a gigantic toolbox we can benefit from to improve our productivity and build better applications.

During this presentation I will introduce some of the tools we use daily at happn, a multi-million users French dating application.

I will talk about many tools that help us to:

  • Simulate a laggy/instable HTTP(s) connection
  • Interact with our application to analyze logs, views, and modify any data (inc. memory / shared preferences / database) in real time
  • Change our application's backend server without recompiling
  • Better understand our technical debt
  • Create a REST mock server in a few seconds to anticipate the development of a feature when the backend is not developed yet
  • Measure the performance (cpu/memory) of our application
  • Decompile our application to better understand and analyze its security
  • Alter a server response and check whether the application behaves properly
  • and many more tips...

Basic android knowledge required.
