After watching this Droidcon London video, you’ll understand Android Drawables and be able to use them to create clean code and a polished, smooth app!

Over the past few years, the quality of apps in the Google Play Store has increased substantially. Developers are taking Android UI seriously and producing beautiful apps made of tons of graphics resources (Bitmaps, 9-patches, shapes, etc.) every day. To help you avoid the pain of handling all these different resources, the Drawable abstraction was born.

In this video, Cyril Mottier deep dives into the android.graphics.drawable package and how you can use it to render scalable and responsive UIs. The Drawable notion is essential to the creation of UIs, but developers often only scratch the surface. Click play to understand Drawables and be able to use them to create clean code and a polished, smooth app!
