Dissecting Andy: The Dalvik VM under the microscope

With Niv Steingarten

During this meetup we will take an in-depth look at the Dalvik VM -- the state-of-the-art mobile virtual machine at the core of the Android platform.

Key points:
* The 5 major differences between Dalvik and other prominent VMs such as HotSpot.
* How Dalvik was designed for optimal performance under strict memory, energy consumption and processing power constraints.
* How the Dalvik VM is built into the Android OS.
* 3 important things every developer should know when writing for the Android platform.

Niv is co-founder at Takipi, a new start-up changing how developers debug systems at scale. Previously, Niv was principal engineer at Autodesk, where he led the delivery of the company’s first iOS version of its graphic-intensive AutoCAD flagship app, used by over 10M professional users. Following that, Niv was lead architect for the AutoCAD Android app, bringing it to over 70 device types. Before that, Niv served as a cyber security researcher at the IDF 8200 unit.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
