We never seem to have enough power. Users wail and gnash their teeth over how frequently they have to charge their devices, or tear out their hair when their device runs out of battery at inopportune moments.
And we're to blame for some of that.
In this presentation, we will look at Project Volta, Google's initiative to help reduce the power consumption of Android and its apps. We will look at the new battery event history that we have access to in the "L" Developer Preview and will see what coding antipatterns look like in that history. We will also discuss the "L" JobScheduler, a way for you to do recurring work in ways that are more friendly to the user's battery.
Note that this talk is BYOFC (Bring Your Own Flux Capacitor).
