Session Title: Fragments: Why, How, and What For?
Session Description: This talk will cover Fragments in detail by comparing and contrasting them to something we know well, Activities. We will also cover examples and use cases. Fragments: Why, How, and What For? is targeted toward developers who may not have had a lot of experience using Fragments and those who want to understand them better. Why did Google introduce Fragments? Aren’t Activities enough? How do Fragments work? What For?
