Abstract: Mobile development is not just about mobile devices anymore: Android scaled up from mobile devices to the TV screen, and developers have now the occasion to start building for a brand new use case: the 10-foot experience. In this session, we cover what's needed to bring your Android app to the living room: we’ll dive into the Leanback Android support library and understand how to take advantage of the big TV screen while using new UI patterns for app navigation through the remote, and how to run your first TV app on Amazon Fire TV.
