What if an app could be performant by being simple? What if an app could work “at scale” for a billion users using only standard Android paradigms? Facebook supports some of the biggest, most complex apps in the world. But supporting *everyone* also means support for developing countries, low-memory phones, and spotty network. So in Messenger Lite, the team tried something different. To make cold start and APK size priorities, they went back to basics. They limited dependencies -- and the feature set. And they embraced what the Android framework provides to make a 100% native app that’s featherweight and really, really fast. In this talk you'll discover how these tools -- such as data binding, RecyclerViews, a database-driven UI, and simply writing *less code* -- are available to every Android developer who wants to build their app the Lite way.
