Working with RxJava's Observables can be challenging: they have to abide by the Android lifecycle, be aware of garbage collection, and keep threading in mind. In this talk, Paco will take a deep dive on the memory management pitfalls when working with reactive apps.

You will learn what leaks are, how they are created when working with observable streams, and provide advice on how to avoid them. Building your own UI binding abstraction can help you understand how you app's state changes, and greatly simplify your tests. Lastly, how to architect your app to optimize for fast development loops.
