Title: "Retaining state between configuration changes in Android"

Abstract: Svetlin will describe the need to explicitly handle configuration changes in Android (e.g. a device orientation change). The framework-provided call back methods will be compared. Using a simple demo program, retaining state, using fragments, will be reviewed. Note: Basic knowledge about Android activity life-cycle will not be covered. Audience participation is welcome.

Speaker: Erik Colban, Drawmetry

Title: "A Case against Finite State Machines"

Abstract: In this talk, Erik will go through different approaches; classical FSM approach, FSM using the State Pattern, using coroutines as an alternative to FSM and using threads as an alternative to FSM. He will highlight the pros and cons of each approach and illustrate each with a demo -- a small app where the user draws ellipses and polylines on a window pane.
