Tor, Romain, Sumir, Ian, and Chet pose for a candid picture
far from the recording studio, when they finally realized 
they'd forgotten to take a picture in the studio earlier.
You'd think they'd have this process nailed by now, 
wouldn't you? I mean, 106 episodes; it's not like
it's new and all. Honestly, what level of professionalism
are we paying for here with this free service?
Romain and Chet talk with Sumir Kataria and Ian Lake about the latest developments in the new WorkManager and Navigation architecture components. WorkManager is now in beta and Navigation should be in beta Real Soon Now.

Alpha? Beta? Are these all Greek to you? We try to de-mystify this naming convention and talk about how we see development and release of architecture components in general.
