Painless Persistence with Realm
In a world where users have ever higher expectations from the apps they use, having data always available, even when the device is offline, has become increasingly important.
In this talk you will learn how thinking "offline first" not only makes your app architecture better but also result in cleaner code and happier users.
I will introduce Realm, a new database for easy persistence, and demonstrate how it enables truly reactive UI's by fitting seamlessly into the standard network stack of Retrofit and RxJava.
Finally we will take a look at the new Realm Mobile Platform, which provides real-time synchronization between devices, enabling features previously out of reach for many development teams.
