Android TV: Building apps with Google’s Leanback library

A session at Brighton Mobile Meetup - February

In this talk we'll be looking at how we can create Android TV apps with the help of Google's leanback library.

After a brief introduction to the TV platform and an open-source Vine TV app I've built, we'll move straight into how you can begin building applications for yourself using the leanback library - following best practices along the way. We'll take a look at the different components that are provided by the framework and how you can craft custom components of your own to enhance your applications UX.

Seeing as Android TV applications are completely testable, we'll also take a _brief_ look at how this can be done to ensure your app functions as expected!
