Book Description

Jetpack Compose is Android’s new framework for building fast, beautiful, and reliable native user interfaces. It simplifies and significantly accelerates UI development on Android using the declarative approach. This book will help developers to get hands-on with Jetpack Compose and adopt a modern way of building Android applications.

You’ll also cover concepts such as testing, animation, and interoperability with the existing Android UI toolkit.

By the end of the book, you’ll be able to write your own Android apps using Jetpack Compose.
