Videos of Android Builders Summit 2011

Android LogoJust after the Embedded Linux Conference 2011, the first edition of the Android Builders Conference took place in San Francisco, on April 13th and April 14th 2011. This is the first, and to date, probably the first, conference entirely dedicated to Android low-level components and on how Android systems are built and modified. The number of resources, documentation and conferences on Android application development is already huge, but the amount of system-level information about Android is still relatively limited. This conference comes to fill in this gap, allowing engineers working on Android-based systems to share their experience. With a single track of talks for the first half-day, and two tracks for the second full day, it was a very nice first edition, and the co-location with the Embedded Linux Conference was well-appreciated. Interestingly enough, no talks were given by Google engineers, despite the fact that they are the primary designers and developers of the Android system.

Just as we did for the Embedded Linux Conference a few days ago, we are also publishing below the videos of all talks given during this Android Builders Summit. Of all the presentations, the ones we found the most interesting are certainly:

  • Karim Yaghmour’s talk about « Android Internals » and «Porting Android to new hardware»
  • Aleksander “Sasa” Gargenta’s talk «A walk through the Android stack». Unfortunately, the speaker had way too much contents for the one hour slot, but the content presented was very, very interesting.
  • Mark Brown’s talk «Linux audio for smartphones»

  1. Thanks for posting these. In the future how about some torrents? I am only able to pull around 200k/sec on my 50 megabit symmetric connection. Anyway, Thanks again as I really wanted to attend this conference but I was unable to make it.

    I was at ABS but you can only attend one of three concurrent presentations. This gives me a chance to see the sessions I could not attend. Thanks a lot for making these available.
