We’re back in the Android development space with an episode about screenshot testing. I’m excited to have on stage Takahiro Menju, Android GDE and author of Roborazzi.

With Roborazzi, you can easily run screenshot tests for your Android app, without having to run a device at all. That’s possible because Roborazzi relies on Robolectric, which allows you to run Android tests directly on the JVM.

Join us in this episode as Takahiro walk us through the story of this library and how it can incredibly simplify screenshot testing for our Android apps.

Enjoy the show 👨‍🍳
