Learn Jetpack Compose without wasting hundreds of hours
Build apps with Google's new UI framework using all the knowledge you already have using Android Views.
Heya 👋! I'm Alex Styl from Composables. Google released Jetpack Compose almost 2 years ago. I was really excited to try it out as I have been building Android apps for more than 10 years. Even though I saw Jetpack Compose's value from the start it seemed like a pain to learn. Learning a new framework is not easy and it needs a new mindset.
I started tinkering with Jetpack Compose since its early betas. After a lot of building apps with it, I was finally able to build UI at the same speed as I as doing with Views.
Being new to it I wasted a lot of time on things that didn't work. There wasn't much content on the Internet or ChatGPT to help back then. Even though there is a lot of content now, it's still hard to find the right information.
View to Composable shows you how to do all the things you already know from Android Views to Jetpack Compose. It is packed with more than 100+ code samples. No fluff, on point, with as little theory as possible.
This is not just a book – it's everything you need to start using Jetpack Compose NOW
This resource is the closest thing to plugging your mind to the Matrix and installing Jetpack Compose to your brain. It contains every single thing you need to know to start using Jetpack Compose in your apps. Literally. There is even a chapter on architecturing your Jetpack Compose app, navigation in Compose and UI testing.
