Compose Migration Side Effects - What Can Go Wrong?

Android development has been revolving around the adoption of Compose lately. Compose is still the shiny, new, declarative - and now also multiplatform - way of building UIs. However, there are tons of projects out there that were built with Views, UIKit, or other favored UI solutions of platforms, while engineers also accumulated knowledge about all the quirks, issues, and workarounds with the framework they had to use or have chosen.

In this talk, we'll look at some less-than-ideal scenarios when jumping on the Compose train in a project unprepared might cause long-term headaches, and how we can avoid falling into future traps that we unconsciously set up today.
