    Using Ketai, avoids writing boiler plate code that we typically write in android projects.The session will focus on how ‘ketai’ can make development faster, for some of the advanced android features that have common usages.

    For example, a simple usecase like determining current location takes just 3-4lines in ketai. Finding the distance between 2 lat-long points takes just a single line of simple computation etc., The simplicity is such that, variables like latitude, longitude are implicitly available within the code and callbacks like onLocationEvent, onResume are straightforward to implement.

    More features like , how simple it is for a user to write an app that will take a picture and share the same. Also, on networking functionalities like bluetooth, wifi communication.
