03/12/2016 - 11:55 to 12:20

Session abstract: 

Dealing with dates and times is hard enough already and the old Java APIs for this have never made life any easier. Fortunately, there are better solutions out there. Joda time has shone a light in the JVM world for many years and more recently Java 8 has introduced shiny new APIs that fix all of these problems. Unfortunately, in the Android world, we’re still dwelling in the dark Java 6 days. Or … are we?
In this presentation I will show you how you can make the new Date/Time APIs work in Android and how to get started with them.
