Intermediate Android

A session at Strange Loop 2011

Sunday 18th September, 2011

11:30am to 2:30pm (CST)

This workshop covers intermediate topics for Android developers such as:

  • Network I/O
  • Multi-threading and asynchronous programming
  • Background services, notifications
  • Hard and soft caching
  • View optimization
  • Content providers and databases
  • Geolocation
  • Metadata and EXIFs
  • Animations
  • Common Android Intents
  • Exception handling

You may be surprised to see how each of these techniques can pop up simply by working with images and multimedia in an Android application. The speaker will explain each of these techniques and talk about the real world situations that he has used them while working on two of the most popular apps on the Android Market, eBay Mobile and Bump, and while co-authoring the book Android in Practice.
