The Android™ Builders Summit is a technical summit for OEMs, their device manufacturers, integrators, custom builders, and the growing Android and Linux Kernel developer communities. Android is expanding to an increasing number of industry segments in addition to smart phones and tablets. There is a need for the ecosystem of builders to collaborate on a common solution for existing limitations and desired features across all of these device categories. The Android Builders Summit provides an intimate forum for collaboration at the systems level and discussion of core issues and opportunities when designing Android devices. The summit addresses topics ranging from custom builds, alternative middleware, network functionality extensions, Peer to Peer frameworks, USB device support, security, unification of power management, tools and hybrid Android devices among many other topics.

In this educational session, Leon Farasati will provide an overview of the concepts of connecting other components and peripherals to Android, and prototyping and commercializing embedded products and applications. It will also cover the technologies and tools available to developers in for testing and performance tuning using an exposed-board development platform. The target audience (developers with intermediate-or-higher experience, both independent and affiliated with OEMs) will learn about the unique advantages of using an exposed board in the development process, a topic especially important given the proliferation of Android in devices beyond smartphones and tablets. Understanding the available tools for producing the best-performing applications and best-integrated components/peripherals can also be a key aspect of helping to differentiate in the crowded Android market.
