Syrine Trabelsi & Francois Blavoet - And then my phone became smarter A journey into the Awareness API (Mobile Era 2016)

François & Syrine will take a glance at the Awareness API and apply it to music recommendations. We are all carrying tiny computers with lots of sensors. With them, we can do more than display content, we can also make these devices aware of the world around us, making them smarter. One way to do this is to leverage the Google Awareness API in order to have rich features with minimal input from the user. It can trigger events when some conditions are put together: when you are close to a certain area, when you plug in headphones, when it is cold or sunny, etc. It can also be used to directly poll the sensors and get some information about the world around you. Using all these capacities to facilitate your life, your device will know what to do and when to do it, with or without your input (as configured by the user). In this talk François & Syrine will show you how to improve your music experience and take it to the next stage.

We’ll look at the hardware platform used (SoC), why we did the hardware and software choices we did, how we upgrade between different versions of Android, what modifications we’ve made to Android, the challenges we faced during development, and currently face during manufacturing and post-release development.

Svetlana Isakova - You can do better with Kotlin (Mobile Era 2016)

The Kotlin programming language is gaining popularity amongst the Android developer community. It’s a modern language that gives more power in everyday routines. Kotlin code generally looks cleaner and nicer, and it’s much easier to work with when you have less verbosity or code duplication. But what’s even more important, is that Kotlin is 100% compatible with all existing Java frameworks, and has good tooling in Android Studio and IntelliJ IDEA. In this talk we’ll discuss the concepts of the language that provide the desired expressiveness, as well as additional goodies designed specifically for Android.
