Come take a peek under the hood of the Android operating system, and see the components that hold the system together. We will be walking through the Android stack, from the kernel, up through the native code, into the frameworks and applications. We will explore how and why Android uses the Linux kernel, the Dalvik VM, patterns in system services, and the boot process of a typical device. We will also take a brief look at the Android source code, and the locations of common components.
