I converted an app to Kotlin, learned a thing or two and wrote about it.

Background work on Android and system health
I'm really happy that Android is focusing on improving overall system health as there's definitely a 'tragedy of the commons' problem with only a limited amount of battery and RAM available across the entire device.

I'm very much looking forward to the JobIntentService (coming soon!), mentioned at 8:54, which provides an IntentService-like API that uses jobs on O, but automatically falls back to using Services pre-O. That should make the common case a lot easier and really help in doing what work is needed to work well with Android O's Background Execution Limits: https://developer.android.com/preview/features/background.html

Dev Console gets a rename to Google Play Console + tons of new features
The Google Play Console (because it is for more than just devs!) got some serious improvements this last week at #IO17.

I think the Android vitals work is particularly useful, particularly with the change from only user reported issues to using anonymous data from all users who have opted in - a huge increase in the amount of actionable data.

Check out the blog post (and all the links in it) for everything else they added.
