What Makes Android Tick

What Makes Android Tick. Paul Danset will give a talk on Android Internals - Including key differences: Android v. Linux.

** We have very limited seating, so check out Paul's slide deck presented earlier, if the context is right for your attendance.

In late February, there were 300 million Android phones world wide and 850K new ones added each day -- just 3+ years since launch. If this number holds, there will be over a half billion Android phones on the planet by the end of the year. This makes Android the largest Linux "distro", by far. Yet Android is quite a different beast from traditional Linux. This talk will cover key differences between them as well as Android internals.
Some of these differences are getting gradually bridged. For example, the mainline Linux kernel has most of the Android-isms merged in 3.3rc*. There are also user space efforts to getting Android and traditional Linux coexist.

Paul Danset is a Sr Software Engineer. Currently working on an Android-based mobile robot for the Seattle Robothon competition in early June.
