Fighting Regressions with Benchmarks in CI
Chris works on the Jetpack Paging and Benchmark libraries.
It's easy to forget about performance until users complain, but you can prevent a bad user experience by catching regressions in CI. We'll explore why variance makes regression detection difficult, and strategies we use to solve this while writing Jetpack libraries. We'll review the new Jetpack Benchmark library, and how to use it to measure hot code paths, from RecyclerView scrolling to database queries.
