Android Jetpack: Navigation Component

Brian Gardner | Aug 13, 2018

In this screencast, we’ll cover the new Navigation Architecture Component introduced at Google I/O 2018. This new library aims to simplify navigation from one screen to another. The Android team realized that correctly implementing navigation and dealing with the complex activity and fragment life-cycles made things hard for developers. Today, we’ll see how to apply the navigation component to an existing app and review the major pieces and parts.

Questions we’ll answer in this screencast:

- How do I add the navigation architecture component to an existing project?
- How do I create a navigation graph?
- How do I use the navigation controller to navigate users between screens in an app?
