Embedded Android
Karim Yaghmour (Opersys inc.)
Much like Linux a decade ago, Android is disrupting the embedded world; displacing established players and overtaking home-brewed solutions. Android, however, is poised to achieve what no other OS was able to: become the default user interface for the majority of user-centric devices, whether they be mobile or not. This workshop will show you how to make your embedded device run Android.
1:45pm-5:00pm (3h 15m) App Development
Getting Physical with Android: Open Accessories & NFC
Brian Jepson (O'Reilly Media, Inc.) et al
Android is no longer just a mobile OS. It is fast becoming a hardware hub with new capabilities like NFC and the Open Accessory Development Kit. The Open Accessory Development KIt will allow anyone, without an NDA, to make hardware peripherals that work with Android. NFC uses radio tags to bring android into the physical world. You are no longer restricted to just software with Android.
9:30am-12:45pm (3h 15m) App Development
Android App Development 101
Ken Jones (Marakana, Inc.)
Learn to develop Android applications in this hands-on workshop. By the end of the workshop, you will know how to design an application and build a working user interface. The Android App Development workshop explores the main app building blocks and their interactions using a real-world application as an example. It gives you the solid foundation to tackle designing complex apps.
1:45pm-5:00pm (3h 15m) App Development
Designing an App from Idea to Market
Tony Hillerson (Tack Mobile) et al
Thanks to Android's powerful framework and component set, it's not hard to get a compelling application developed relatively quickly. If you're lucky enough to have a good eye for design, or know where you can find someone who does, Android apps can even look pretty good. In this workshop we're going to focus on what's hard: designing a good user experience for the Android platform.
