mytaxi Stage on a Boat

This year we have bunch of new things at UIKonf. One of them is the parallel stage hosted by our Platinum Sponsor, mytaxi.

This stage will be on a boat anchored in front of our venue, RadialSystem, and will feature a workshop and two talks held by the mytaxi team.

In 2018 we relaunched mytaxi’s passenger apps introducing new user flows and rebuilding the technical implementation.

Sensor: How to develop apps with a state of the art architecture

Presenter: Mounir Dellagi & Philipp Schöne
Date: Monday, 27th May & Tuesday, 28th May (repeat)
Location: mytaxi Boat Stage, RadialSystem
Time: 14:15
Duration: 2 h
Fee: free

Sensor: How to develop apps with a state of the art architecture

A good architecture like MVVM makes it easy to separate the view from the business logic. But how do you manage the state? Do your presenter, interactor or view model use unidirectional data flow? Do you have a single source of truth of your state? Is you code easy to test and refactor? What about Referential Transparency?

We would like to show case how we jazzed up MVVM by adding a state machine and ideas from Redux to solve all our state related troubles. In this workshop we will develop a simple rating screen, complex enough to demonstrate how easy and clean state management can be and we will answer all the questions we posed above.

Your conference ticket already includes this workshop.

In addition to these workshops, the last day of UIKonf will host an unconference-like get-together where everyone can share their knowledge in self-organized labs. If you want to offer a workshop as well, get in touch with us.
