For years, you’ve been looking at one type of consumer of your work: the end user - the one for whom you are developing our apps. The Android community has been growing and, most of all, it’s been collaborating! Code, blog posts and talks - for all these types of content that you are producing, the consumer is you. All of you! From code reviewers, team-mates, other developers that use our work, to the future “you” that needs to maintain the code.
For the first type of consumers you have specialized roles that advocate for them – like product owners and UI/UX designers – but for the second type, you don’t. As developers, it ends up being your responsibility to look at the content you are producing from the perspective of the target audience.
Florina will share with you a look at the “content - consumer” relationship in the same way you look at the “app - end-user” relationship. You will explore what kind of questions you need to answer to improve the quality of your work, satisfy your content consumers and, in turn, improve the end-user experience.

Florina is working as an Android Developer Advocate at Google, helping developers architect clean, testable apps using the Architecture Components libraries.
