By using RxJava (and some other tools) the team in Amsterdam have begun to standardise the way that these components communicate to each other and internally to themselves. Alongside this the team have pushed how they use RxJava to all the corners of their code from view interfaces to services and repository objects.
The talk showcases the evolution from an Android heavy codebase littered with nested fragments, polluted MVP, nested callbacks, event bus, self made “frameworks” and more to something that is mainly pure (Rx)Java based, smaller, testable and consistent.
