Stage Lovelace

Session abstract: 

At Google I/O we launched Room: a persistence component designed to make your life easier when working with SQLite databases on Android. Entities and data access objects are defined using annotations, your queries are now checked at compile time and the database migrations are easy to implement. In this talk you’ll find out whether you should or not integrate Room in your project. You’ll learn how Room works, how it handles multi-threading, how to write queries and work with different return types, how to migrate your database, and finally, how to test your code.
