Description

Change is inevitable and Android apps are no exception. The tools, the requirements, the features, the user interface will change eventually. One needs to implement an architecture that embraces change and that treats frameworks and libraries as pluggable components. In this course, Adapting CLEAN Architecture in Android Apps, you will learn the concepts, benefits, and implementation of CLEAN Architecture in Android Apps. First, you will learn about the core concepts of CLEAN Architecture. Next, you will discover various helpful libraries like RxJava, Dagger2, and Android architecture components (AAC) that help with the implementation of the CLEAN Architectural pattern. Finally, you will explore how architecture enables the testing of individual components in isolation. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge to implement CLEAN Architectural pattern in your own projects to create robust, testable, and maintainable Android apps.

Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Kaushal Dhruw, and welcome to my course, Adapting CLEAN Architecture in Android Apps. I am an author and an app developer. I have been developing Android apps since 2012. Over the years, I have learned that change is the only constant in the world of Android.  CLEAN architecture ensures these changes are integrated with the least amount of friction. The CLEAN architecture allows us to design systems that are independent of frameworks, loosely coupled, testable, and maintainable. This course introduces CLEAN architecture and adapts it in Android apps. Some of the major topics that we will cover include:  Importance of software architecture, what is it, and why should we care; core concepts of CLEAN architecture and how it eases  software development; unit and instrumentation testing using  JUnit, Mojito, and Espresso; Android architecture components, including room, view model, and live data; and finally, dependency injection with Dagger2. By the end of this course, you will be fully equipped to create CLEAN architecture backed Android apps.  Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with basic Android development using Android Studio and some basic Kotlin syntax.  I hope you will join me in this journey to learn robust, maintainable,  and testable Android app development with the Adapting CLEAN Architecture in Android Apps course, at Pluralsight.
