Managing state in Android applications can be painful. Over the years, various architectural patterns have evolved to try and tame it: MVC, MVP, and MVVM.
MVI (Model-View-Intent) is an evolution of these patterns. Thanks to Immutable State management and Unidirectional Data Flow, we can finally say goodbye to race conditions and rogue mutations. Combine the power of MVI with Kotlin Coroutines alongside the recently released Kotlin Flows library. The result? Real magic. No RxJava incantations required!
In this session, you’ll learn how to build a Model-View-Intent (MVI) Android App, using both Kotlin Coroutines and Kotlin Flows. You’ll walk away understanding the core principles of this pattern, as well as its key benefits. Get ready to fall for MVI❤!
