Android has taken the mobile market by storm, in part due to its open
source nature (did you know it is based on the Linux kernel?). However,
Android development has had to walk a delicate line between developers
demanding openness and the established mobile industry that prefers to
lock everything down.

In this talk, Luke will introduce Android as a mobile development
platform, discussing the architecture and development tools available,
as well as the history of how Android has walked the line between open
and closed.

Luke Meyer, web geek and open source zealot, started TriDroid, the
Triangle Android Meetup, because no one else had done so yet when he
wanted to start hacking for his G1 phone. He currently works technical
support for SpringSource at VMware. Previously he worked as a web
engineer at Red Hat.
