Peťo, prepared a short intro for JetPack Compose, (for which he also prepared a series of articles Jetpack Compose Basics - Snackbar, Scaffold or Showing Image), which was followed by our Android lead Jozef. He covered the topic in more depth with many practical examples and tips.

#1 Kotlin Talks - Jetpack Compose, recording and presentations

Peťo Šuly addressed what Jetpack Compose is. He explained what the basic building blocks of the JetPack Compose look like, e.g. box, lazycolumn, what is a modifier and what is it used for. He also shared his experience with projects he worked on, for example. Innovatrics, Kros or Tatra banka

Jozef covered the topic more in depth, and explained the difference between the Compose runtime and the Compose UI. He also talked about what the compiler plugin is, what structure Compose generates in the background and more valuable info for advanced programmers. Of course, he also revealed something about the projects in which he participated, such as Tatra banka or Bistro.sk.
