In this episode Nick and Chet are joined by Dois Liu and Nader Jawad to discuss Compose’s Animation and Graphics systems. They cover their goals to make both systems easier to understand, more consistent and simpler to work with. They explain how they adapted traditionally imperative systems to a declarative world and give an overview of both the high level composables the library offers as well as lower level building blocks you can drop down to for more control.

Hosts Chet & Nick speak to Doris and Nader.
