While Android is mostly on phones and similar-sized devices, there is growing interest in tablets, and televisions with Android apps are just around the corner. Google is pushing for Android developers to support the wide range of screen sizes... but how can one do this without going completely insane, maintaining several different code bases?  

This presentation will cover strategies for building one application, with one set of code, that supports phones, tablets, televisions, and anything else that comes along (watches? Jumbotrons?). Particular emphasis will be placed on the tools provided by the Honeycomb user interface framework for accomplishing this, notably the concept of "fragments". 

This presentation will be mostly architectural and strategic, more than showing tons of code listings. As such, while it is aimed for attendees with Android experience, relative newcomers to the platform should understand a fair bit of the material covered.

Speaker: Mark Murphy is the author of  numerous books on the Android platform, and teaches regular training classes on the Android platform.

    Says 1 attending, no spots left. Is the meeting in a broom closet? :) What's the real status?

    I would be eternally grateful if someone who's attending can set up a webcam and broadcast this talk on I believe that it's free (ad supported, of course)
