Android Dev Challenge Finale: Weather app

Posted by Jolanda Verhoef, Developer Relations Engineer

Let your creativity shine in the final week of the #AndroidDevChallenge! Last week we asked you to be fast, but for this final week we ask you to bring your 'A' game. Here’s the challenge:

Week #4: Weather app 🌤

Create a single-screen weather forecast app. You have until March 23rd, 23:59 PST to submit your entry.1

Your UI must be fully built in Compose. You can use fake weather data.



We will judge your submission on these four categories:

  1. Visual beauty
  2. Novelty of idea
  3. Code quality
  4. Overall execution (including accessibility)

To help implement a beautiful design, check out the Compose documentation on layouts, theming, and graphics. Think of novel uses of animations and gestures. Improve your code quality with architecture and testing. And for overall execution, make sure to read about accessibility.

Your solution must be implemented in a public GitHub repository. Make a copy of this Github repository template and follow the instructions in the README. The template contains a basic Hello World! in Compose and a continuous integration setup.

The App Submission must, at a minimum, support English language use.

This week’s prize: 5 x Google Pixel 5!

This week you have a chance of winning a Google Pixel 5, the ultimate 5G Google phone! We’ll be giving away one Google Pixel 5 for the winner of each of the four categories, and one for the best of the best submission.2

On your marks...Get set… Wait a second! Save the date for the third week of the #AndroidDevChallenge! On March 13th, compete with other developers in your time zone; the fastest Compose skills wins! We loved all the creative submissions of week #1 and #2, but now we’re looking for speed. Here’s your challenge:

Week #3 - Speed round 🏎

Be the fastest to implement a set of designs provided by us. The designs will be posted here when the challenge starts. Submit your entry* as soon as you finish implementing the designs.

We’ll post different designs at 3 different times on the 13th:

  • APAC-friendly: opens at 9AM UTC+8
  • EMEA-friendly: opens at 9AM UTC
  • Americas-friendly: opens at 9AM UTC-8

We’ll update this blog post at the beginning of each round with the link to the designs.

Your UI must be fully built in Compose, and strictly match all the guidelines specified in the designs. To help you with the implementation, check out the Compose documentation on theming, layouts, and navigation. For some hands-on learning try out the Compose pathway, with codelabs covering several topics useful for completing this challenge.

Your solution must be implemented in a GitHub repository. Make a copy of this Github repository template and follow the instructions in the README. The template contains a basic Hello World! in Compose and a continuous integration setup.

This week’s prize: a Google Pixel 5!
