Training Webinar:  The Growth of Android in Embedded Systems

Android arms crossed

Benjamin Zores

Accelerate Your Embedded Product Design With Android

Linux has continuously grown in the embedded systems market for over a decade, gaining market share from proprietary operating systems. The proliferation of embedded devices, the explosion of open source development, the inherent hardware support, the incredible networking capabilities and the royalty-free economic model have all helped propel use of the Linux kernel into one of the best choices for the design of new embedded systems.

While the success of Linux in the embedded market can not be denied, it was well-known only in technical circles. That changed in 2008 with Google's release of the Android mobile phone operating system, based on the Linux kernel. Thus began the tremendous growth of Linux in the consumer world, with over one million Android devices being activated every day in 2012 and predictions of total Android devices shipped reaching one billion in 2013.

In this webinar, Benjamin Zores, Android Platform Architect and Technical Writer, will show embedded systems engineers and engineering leaders how the Android operating system compares to traditional embedded Linux systems.  We'll help you understand whether or not you should start your next product design with Android through an exhaustive introduction to:

  • Android operating system internals
  • Android's complete divergence with embedded Linux systems design
  • The reasons for Android's attraction in the industry
  • Android's under-the-hood flaws and weaknesses

AUDIENCE

Whether you are new to Android and embedded Linux system design and considering an Android-based solution for the first time or you have already collected experience with embedded Android and are looking for a better approach, this webinar will show you how you can greatly accelerate embedded product development with Android.

Android Development Training

SECURE YOUR WEBINAR SPOT

As a software architect for Alcatel-Lucent, Benjamin Zores has been designing embedded Linux devices for 10+ years, leading enterprise-grade Linux/Android multimedia IP phones conception. His area of expertise mostly covers low-level devices and platforms definition, board bring-up and drivers development, though his real passion comes from reverse- engineering the software architecture of operating systems to understand what’s beneath the hood. He drove the conception of an Android- based wired IP phone and has a very deep knowledge of bringing support for all multimedia peripherals and connectivity layers of Android.

Prior from that, Ben was also most known for his open source contributions, as the original author of the OpenBricks embedded cross-build framework, the GeeXboX HTPC live distribution and the uShare UPnP/DLNA MediaServer. Ben is also a recurrent speaker at LinuxFoundation’s ELC and ABS events and Android technical writer for Linux Magazine France. He lives in Strasbourg, France.

The Linux Foundation offers Android training courses for developers, including Introduction to Embedded Android Development and Inside Android:  An Introduction to Android Internals.

Upcoming Course:

Inside Android: An Introduction to Android Internals

Location: Silicon Valley

Date: Nov 18 - 22, 2013

Course Description:

Android development training that provides a hands-on tour of the internals of the Android operating system for mobile devices. Attendees learn the ins and outs of the Android anatomy including the Android framework, hardware abstraction layer, the Binder inter-process communication and power management. The accompanying labs demonstrate step-by-step how to setup the Android build environment and bring up Android on an embedded target device. The embedded target device kit for the labs will be provided by The Linux Foundation and students will get to take their own kit home for further practice.
