Android Open is for the whole ecosystem—from app developers creating next cool apps to OEMs and carriers hacking the platform for their specific business needs. This is one opportunity to meet and learn from some of the most brilliant minds on the frontier of mobile computing.
Anyone can make an Android app. But there’s a lot to learn about how to do it right. You want to build it for speed and update-ability. In this track, we’ll cover Android Framework best practices, enterprise considerations, game development, working with the cloud, Android security, programming for tablets and large screens, UX, location-based APIs, performance improvements, and the Development Tools.
The Android OS is a complete operating system stack. Although powerful, it’s fairly complex and most of it is not well documented. This track aims to unpack how Android works under the hood. We’ll explore how to modify various frameworks and services, port Android to alternative devices, and generally hack the system in ways it hasn’t been done before.
Business & Marketing
The business opportunities for those of us in the Android ecosystem are growing. To succeed, we’ll need a thorough grounding in analytics, promotion, app stores, revenue models, VCs, and alternative hardware platforms. We’re seeking case studies of what is working in the marketplace and what users are looking for. We’ll also dive into both consumer as well as enterprise aspects of the Android ecosystem.
Although your session must have an interesting angle, it can fall under a broad Android theme. A few possibilities for this year, in no particular order, include:
We’re looking for sessions that will help our attendees understand a cutting-edge concept or learn a new skill that will have an impact on their business over the next 6 to 18 months. Help your proposal stand out in a good way by following the guidelines below.
We’re looking for 20-minute and 50-minute breakout session speakers. Go for 20 minutes if you’re a high-impact presenter who can give a stellar 15-minute talk and then take questions for 5 minutes. Go for 50 minutes if you’re proposing a panel or more exploratory session.
The submission deadline for all proposals is June 1, 2011.
