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.

Bringing up Android on your Favorite x86 Workstation or Virtual Machine – Ron Munitz, Nubo Software

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This is a comprehensive "hands-on" tutorial on how to configure and build an Android desktop machine, using the Android-X86 and Android-IA projects.
We will understand how Android can be used as a General Purpose Operating System on your PC/Laptop,and we will learn how to build and test it for any VM configuration, how to multiple boot Android on your workstation along with any other OS, and how to debug it as well. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each project, comparing them to a general ROM cooking paradigm as per the AOSP. We will use our built Android systems on a couple of X86 virtual machine architectures, and on a full working Android laptop (including Ethernet, Camera, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Sound and graphic acceleration). No previous knowledge of Android platform building is required, but experience with building Embedded Linux systems is recommended.
