Are you excited about Jetpack Compose? Do you love playing & making games? Have you got that designer itch which makes you want to develop creative apps? Or you love the motion design and micro-interactions?

Although Jetpack Compose is a toolkit to create Android UI in a declarative form with the power of Kotlin language. But it can be used as a canvas for generative art, animations, or even games.

In this session, we'll take a look at the capabilities of Canvas API for Jetpack Compose and how can we implement different kinds of animations with it. We'll also dig into game development and discuss some common challenges like game loop, state management etc. We will also explore other UI animations and transitions with Jetpack Compose.

By the end of this talk, we'll be more familiar with the concepts of Canvas in Jetpack Compose and how we can use it during development to write animations or games.
