In this talk, Carlos Mota is also going to share the dos and don’ts about these developments and how everything will get better at the end.

Building a game with Jetpack Compose

Although Jetpack Compose is a toolkit to create Android UI in a declarative form with the power of Kotlin language. But it can be used as a canvas for generative art, animations, or even games. In this session, we’ll take a look at the capabilities of Canvas API for Jetpack Compose and how can we implement Chrome’s T-Rex Dino game.
