I had the chance to spend two full days at Google I/O 2011 earlier this week and I enjoyed spending so much time talking with many Android developers. You guys are doing an amazing job and I can’t wait to download and use some of the apps you showed me!
Google I/O was also the occasion for me to give two presentations about Android with my friend and colleague Chet Haase: Honeycomb Highlights and Android Accelerated Rendering. I am happy to announce that the slides for both these sessions are now available.
Our first session, Honeycomb Highlights, is an overview of the new features for users and developers you can find in Android 3.0:
Our second session, Android Accelerated Rendering, explains how to use the new OpenGL 2D rendering pipeline in your applications:
You can also download the source code of our animations demo from Google Code. This demo also shows how to properly use hardware acceleration and hardware layers.
