UI boilerplate is a thing of the past! The Data Binding support library was one of Google's big announcements at I/O 2015. Now that Data Binding is graduating from Release Candidate status, it's a better time than ever to start using it in your projects.  

Data Binding takes some of the best boilerplate-obliterating features from open source libraries you love like Butter Knife, AndroidAnnotations, Transfuse, and RoboBindings. However, Google's implementation of Data Binding goes a step further as they have the power to define the platform and change layout rules.

In this talk, we'll go over the history of the Data Binding project at Google, have a crash course on usage, and then look at some more advanced techniques like two-way binding and MVVM architecture. You won't want to miss it!
