The above is an "exploded" outline used to illustrate the class' full content. Actual sections and modules differ from the above. Also, note that class content and order of material presented is subject to slight changes, depending on attendee needs and interest. Topics labeled as "intro" are covered in sufficient depth to allow students to start navigating the topic with ease but would typically warrant an entirely separate discussion. Writing a Linux device driver for instance, while a necessary part of adding hardware support to Android, is a vast topic more adequately covered by our Linux Device Drivers class.
This class is intended for developers who want to:

Requirements, the full story:
Mark Murphy is the founder of CommonsWare and the author of The Busy Coder’s Guide to Android Development. He is active in supporting the Android developer community, from answering questions on StackOverflow to publishing sample code and reusable components as open source.
A three-time entrepreneur, his experience ranges from consulting on open source and collaborative development for the Fortune 500 to application development on just about anything smaller than a mainframe. He has been a software developer for nearly three decades, from the TRS-80 to the latest crop of mobile devices. A polished speaker, Mr. Murphy has delivered conference presentations and training sessions on a wide array of topics internationally.
Karim J. Yaghmour is part serial entrepreneur part unrepentant geek. His experience combines a unique mix of mobile, embedded and kernel background with enterprise and web2.0/consumer-oriented Rich Internet Application development. Karim is the author of O'Reilly's Embedded Android and Building Embedded Linux Systems, which sold tens of thousands of copies worldwide and has been translated into several different languages.
Having been an early believer in the power of open source, Karim pioneered the world of Linux tracing by introducing the Linux Trace Toolkit (LTT) in the late '90s. He continued maintaining LTT through 2005 and was joined in this effort by developers from several companies, including IBM, HP, and Intel. LTT users included: Google, IBM, HP, Oracle, Alcatel, Nortel, Ericsson, Qualcomm, NASA, Boeing, Airbus, Sony, Samsung, NEC, Fujitsu, SGI, RedHat, Thales, Oerlikon, Bull, Motorola, ARM, ST Micro, Infineon, WindRiver, MontaVista, Scientific-Atlanta, Wipro and Autodesk. Other contributions include relayfs and Adeos.
Karim has presented and published as part of a number of peer-reviewed scientific conferences, magazines and online publications, including Usenix, the Linux Kernel Summit, the Embedded Linux Conference, the Android Builders Summit, AnDevCon, the Embedded Systems Conference, AndroidOpen, the Ottawa Linux Symposium, LinuxJournal, the O'Reilly Network and the Real-Time Linux Workshop. Some of Karim's projects can be found in our Community section. Karim holds Masters and Bachelors degrees in Computer Engineering from the École Polytechnique de Montréal.
