We have closed submissions for Fragments Conf, Bangalore edition which will be held on 30 March. If you wish to submit a proposal for the conference, make a submission here.
Fragments is a conference on mobile engineering, including:
- State of platforms/OS
- Engineering approaches and paradigms
In 2019, Fragments is a traveling conference with editions in Ahmedabad, Bangalore, and potentially Hyderabad and Kochi (in the second half of 2019).
Topics for submission:
We seek proposals – for short and long talks, Birds of Feather (BOF) session topics, and workshops + tutorials – on the following topics:
- Deep dive technical talks on Flutter.
- AR Core: practical approaches and the business use cases.
- Reducing app size to below 10MB and how to cater for lower-end phones.
- PWA caching strategies.
- ML Kit (ML Kit | Google Developers).
- On device ML.
- Server-side ML.
- Progressive ML, where the fallback is on-device ML when the device goes offline.
- Functional programming for mobile.
- Coroutines in Kotlin.
- Mobile specific user research.
- Case studies from teams which have switched away from cross platform approaches.
- Use cases for which Native apps work versus use cases where it doesn’t make sense to build Native apps.
- Deep dive talks on performance.
- Optimising for lower-end hardware.
- Future of chatbots for conversations on mobile.
- Automating design to code.

Arrow and Functional Programming for Kotlin Android Developers
In this talk, I’ll be describing Functional Programming in Kotlin, and Arrow library for Android Developers, taking some extracts from my book Functional Kotlin. Functional Programming is the most trendy thing nowadays as well as the most evolved paradigm.
This talk will let you learn the most important topics of Functional Programming and Arrow library while developing an Android App. So this is not just a talk where you’ll just hear about the abstract concepts, rather you’ll learn to implement most important concepts of Functional Programming and Arrow Library. Functional Programming is the most trendy paradigm while being evolved for a long period (read decades). While Kotlin is not a pure functional language, it gives a great support for Functional Programming and abstracts and the Arrow library makes it easier to use Functional Programming with Kotlin with ease. Though Functional Programming paradigms are there from long ago, they still are not very well understood by most of devs out there. So let’s all learn it in a more easy to understand, fun and practical way.
Rivu is a Kotlin Evangelist and a Google Certified Android Developer. He’s the author of Reactive Programming in Kotlin, Functional Kotlin and Coroutines for Android Developers (still WIP), and more to be announced soon. He’s also an instructor at Caster.io and leads GDG Kolkata and Kotlin Kolkata User Group.
