Google Unravels The Source Code For I/O 2018 App

Google I/O is an annual developer conference that is held in California every year. The conference was first held in 2008. In the Google I/O, the I and O stands for input and output. The tech giant’s annual developer conference slogan goes as "Innovation in the Open." The whole event revolves around tech and developing apps for web and mobile. Apart from that, it includes Chrome, Android, APIs, App engine and much more.

I can surely say, attending Google I/O is the dream of every developer due to the existence of unending opportunities. Expectedly, this year’s I/O conference was exceptional. Some of the highlights of the event included new Google Assistant voices, the announcement of Android P, Google Duplex, smart display with Google Assistant, enhancement in Google Maps and much more.

The Google is long following the practice of releasing the source code of the annual year’s event app in the following months. So, working on the same lines, Google released the source code I/O 2018 App. It will help the developers to take a better look at the Google's best practices for app development.

The developers can lay their hands on the app source code from GitHub, the web-based hosting service.

As per the official page of GitHub, “The 2018 version of the app constitutes a comprehensive rewrite. The architecture is built around Android Architecture Components. We followed the recommendations laid out in the Guide to App Architecture when deciding on the architecture for the app. We kept logic away from Activities and Fragments and moved it to ViewModels. We observed data using LiveData and used the Data Binding Library to bind UI components in layouts to the app's data sources.”

App Architecture

The released source code is the complete rewrite of the app and used the Kotlin language for the same. The app code is based on Architecture Components, rather than ContentProvider + SyncAdapter architecture.
