Even if you are successful using open source sofware, there's something special about hardware: It's physical. You can touch it. You build it (not compile it). This is a talk about the Arduino open source physical computing platform; a cheap, useful, fun micro-controller ... and it's loads of fun, even if you break into a cold sweat at the thought of picking up a soldering iron.
Come hear tips and war stories on making fast, responsive Android apps. No more ANRs! Eliminate event loop stalls! Fast start-ups! Optimized database queries with minimal I/O! Also, learn about the tools and techniques we use to find performance problems across the system and hear what's coming in the future.
Got questions about open source and Google? Come and talk with Chris DiBona, Tim Bray, and other Googlers during this free form hour of questions, answers, and general hanging out.
In this lively discussion we'll give an update on the Google activities over the last year, including an overview of Android, Chrome, ChromeOS, Go and other releases. We will also present a milestone report on the summer of code.

a thought experiment that aims to test how far we can stretch
outputting reams of generated code.
Recommended for folks who are interested in languages that run in the browser as well
as the server.

Join us at OSCON Android Hands-on, an intense, technical, and structured event led by Google Android experts. Co-presented by Google and O’Reilly, the Hands-on takes place after the Expo Hall reception on Wednesday, July 21 from 7:00-10:00 pm. Space is limited. Separate advance registration is required, and is open only to registered conference attendees and speakers.

Rails has reached a degree of popularity among web developers, so there's a lot of Rails 2.x series code floating around. Of course, once Rails 3 is released, it's not like these apps will explode, ceasing to function in an any meaningful way, but it would be nice to get all the new hotness that this release brings.
The presentation shows how Android applications can be cross-compiled to the iPhone. Only knowledge of Android's SDK is required. The cross-compiler will automatically generate an iPhone version. This approach promises the "Write-once, run anywhere" paradigm for smart phone platforms.

No threads, no callbacks, just pure IO scheduling with Ruby 1.9, Fibers, and Eventmachine. All the nice things we love about writing synchronous code, but completely asynchronous under the covers – the best of both worlds. A hands on look at the architecture, mechanics, and involved libraries towards creating the next generation Ruby web-servers.
good library support, but testing practices are cumbersome to
non-existent. This talk demonstrates a set of tools that make
as Java, Ruby, or Python, including aspects unique to
of the browser. All of that is about to change. Node.js is a fast,
wondered just how fast a server can go, this talk if for you.
