Annotations and Annotation Processors are all the rage in Android Development these days. There are annotations to help you:
- Avoid the boilerplate of Parcelable or ContentProviders
- Generate bindings for your views
- Implementing deeplinking
- Even find bugs in your code!
This talk will showcase some existing annotations (like the support-annotations library) and annotation processors (such as butterknife, deeplinkdispatch, autoparcel). Afterwards, I’ll show you how to write your own.
