After Jetpack Compose was finally released, creators of new Android apps were now equipped with a tool that will help them easily write Android apps using the new declarative approach. The journey is not easy for developers who already have large apps that use the imperative, XML-based approach and want to convert it to Jetpack Compose. The migration journey has its ups and downs, initially daunting but eventually satisfying.

This talk will highlight that journey, Ahmed’s learnings and advice for developers looking to migrate their existing Android apps to Jetpack Compose.
