The new ConstraintLayout is not just a new component but a new method of building UI in Android. Coupled with the new and improved layout tools in Android Studio, the ConstraintLayout looks to provide developers with flexibility, adaptability, and efficiency, both in the layouts themselves and in the development process.

During this session you will explore these new tools for building complex and efficient layouts. Huyen will go through an example of using the new Layout Editor in conjunction with the ConstraintLayout, you will learn how to use the Layout Inspector to analyze view hierarchies, discuss when to use the ConstraintLayout, and explore good practices and current caveats.
