Serial: Improving Data Serialization on Android

In 2015, the Twitter for Android team wrote a custom serialization framework to better control and optimize how we serialize data within our app. In this talk, I'll go through the motivation behind this project, how we structured the framework and implemented it in our codebase, and an assessment of how it benefited our work and the Twitter for Android app. Twitter has now open sourced this library for other developers to use, so this will serve as an introduction for those interested in adopting it into their codebases and contributing to the project.
