Talk: Developing Maintainable Apps

Great Android apps only include what's needed to achieve the goals of the product, not enhance the resume of the developer. What’s more, the more maintainable an application is, the more likely it will have increased user satisfaction and decreased time to market.

So how can you do it?  Keep these four factors in mind:

  1. Choose your 3rd Party Components Wisely
  2. Keep your Code Simple
  3. Use Static Code Analysis Tools
  4. Write Unit Tests
