A Path is a representation of a series of lines, straight or curved, that can be drawn, used for clipping, or to draw text along the line.
A common usage of paths is SVG, which supports operations like clipping and compositing. Path manipulation APIs are available on every platform like the Web, iOS and of course, Android. Many developers don’t realize that they can take advantage of these APIs to create great visual effects.
In the talk, Rakshak will explore some effects created using Paths, deconstruct their behaviour and reproduce them using the Path Operations API. He’ll also look at backporting some Path operations to as low as API 1.
