Looper.loop() - Understanding Android's Message Queue

Few developers look below the fold of their stack traces or even care to understand the framework that's calling their code. This talk aims to simplify the interactions of core framework components and the message queue. From configuration changes to asynchronous race conditions, learning how Android calls your code will allow you to engineer better solutions and build better apps. Deep dive into the Android source code and surface with a greater understanding of the framework and learn some helpful tips and debugging tricks along the way.
