Tracks at Android Open

The sessions at Android Open will fall into three main tracks:

App Development

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.

Platform Development

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. Hear 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.
