We look forward to seeing what Huyen has to show off for us at this year's Big Android BBQ, as well as the experience that she will be sharing during her session.
Session Title: Loving Lean Layouts 
Session Description: XML layouts are a fundamental part of Android development at all levels. Getting started is straightforward but creating efficient layouts while still achieving a high-level of control takes some practice and a few tricks. In this session we will look at creating lean yet lovely layouts. We will discuss use cases and best practices for standard layouts, recognizing when a custom layout is for you, common mistakes and misconceptions, and some tricks and situational techniques.
