ABSTRACT:  Android
The Android operating system now powers more smartphones than any other operating system, and with nearly 600,000 new device activations daily that trend looks set to continue. It is also nipping at the heels of the leader in the tablet market as well, in addition to being embedded in lots of other devices such as stand-alone GPS units and television set-top boxes. If there was ever a train worth jumping aboard, Android is it!

With a Java-based development model utilizing common (not to mention free!) development tools, getting started with Android couldn’t be easier for Java developers. With an emulator available you don’t even need to own an Android device to start playing!

In this talk you’ll get an introduction to Android, learn about its overall architecture and see not only the similarities to typical Java development but also the differences. You’ll become familiar with the tooling offered by Google and will see it in action as we explore a few different code examples and see that code in action. Later on we’ll touch on a few somewhat more advanced topics such as the Enterprise API and the NDK.
