How To Understand Composables & Recomposition: A Beginners Guide To Jetpack Compose

The purpose of this article is to explain a few fundamental concepts and terms regarding the Jetpack Compose UI Library on Android. I intend to use the least amount of jargon necessary, and to connect new concepts with those which may be familiar to you when appropriate.

While this is a beginners guide to Compose, it will not be a beginners guide to Android, so readers will be expected to have built at least an application or two (though not in compose necessarily).
