While Android has been created for mobile devices -- phones first and now tablets -- it can, nonetheless, be used as the basis of any touch-screen system, whether it be mobile or not.

This one-day workshop is aimed at embedded developers wanting to build embedded systems using Android. It will cover Android from the ground up, enabling developers to get a firm hold on the components that make up Android and how they need to be adapted to an embedded system. Specifically, we will start by introducing Android's overall architecture and then proceed to peel Android's layer one-by-one.

This 1/2 workshop is aimed at embedded developers that want to use Android in their embedded designs.

While Android interest is soaring, there is little incentive for its originator (Google) to document its internals or how developers can find their way around. This talk is one I've been giving regularly at many conferences and that is typically strongly attended and liked. It was also the basis of my O'Reilly book on the same topic.
