Our apps are ever more alive. They interact with the rest of the world talking to backends and receiving notifications from them. They get their input from us and from other sensors. They are even aware of the location of the device they run in, or its position. But, in our IoT world, they may also detect presence in a room, get the temperature of it, or change the color of its lights.

Sadly enough, many of the apps available today with those capabilities have some architectural limitations:

  • Many of them are written in a way that is really dependent on a specific hardware.

  • Some restrict their use cases to whatever is provided by the hardware devices.

  • And almost all of them expect having a connection with the real device as the only way to test if they work properly.

However, we can also use an advanced architecture, like the Clean Architecture, to create a beautiful, scalable, testable, and robust application. Join Jorge and he will share with you how you can do it!

This is a "Code or it didn't happen" (TM) talk.
