Want to learn some new ways to create engaging, interactive, and visually stunning UIs?Shaders are scary but powerful tools that, when wielded correctly, can help us make some cool and complex effects. With the new AGSL, we can create custom programmable shaders that can really spruce up our Android apps and make our UIs pop!

In this talk, we will dive into the world of shaders and AGSL, and explore how we can use them in a practical way. We will cover some shader basics to build a foundation. Then we will learn a bit about AGSL and how we can setup Runtime Shaders in a Compose UI app. Finally we'll look at some really cool examples of shader-driven UI in the wild.

Key Takeaways:
- Gain a deeper understanding of Shaders and AGSL
- Learn how to integrate shaders with Compose
- See some practical use-cases for shaders in an Android app
- Become comfortable with complex tech and push the boundaries of Android UIs

Let's unlock our full potential as UI developers!
