This talk will take you on a tour of Compose tooling available in Android Studio, with live-coded examples that demonstrate how you can:

- Get the most out of Composable Preview and Multipreview Annotations
- Understand the limitations of Live Edit and where it can and can’t save you time
- Use Layout Inspector to analyze your layout, allowing you to better understand recomposition and pinpoint performance issues
- Choreograph your animations to perfection using Animation Preview
- And more!

Whether you’re just beginning with Jetpack Compose or already using it in your production app, this talk aims to show how incorporating more features of Compose tooling into your workflow can save you time and help you build a more performant UI.
