iOS and Windows apps to soon run on Android?

Posted by Charbax – March 9, 2013

Check out my 41-minute video with Bernhard Rosenkränzer, Android engineer at Linaro, where he explains how iOS, Windows Phone/RT/8 and full Linux apps can soon run on Android. He shows off how GCC/LLVM/Clang now runs on Android, allowing developers to develop and compile code directly on Android. Soon, perhaps as 64bit ARMv8 devices reach the market by next year, developers won't need an x86 Laptop machine to develop for/on Android. Compile a new Android and reboot into it, all within Android itself. He explains how Google and the open source Android project is using Linaro code to optimize and speed up Android Linux on all ARM devices. Here's the video that I filmed last year that got him to win the "Online Superstar" award at Linaro Connect 2013.

Karim Yaghmour Presents Embedded Android #2 – Working with the AOSP

Posted by Charbax – March 6, 2013

Presented by Karim Yaghmour, CEO of Opersys Inc.

While Android has been created for mobile devices -- phones first and now tablets -- it can, nonetheless, be used as the basis of any touch-screen system, whether it be mobile or not. Essentially, Android is a custom-built embedded Linux distribution with a very elaborate and rich set of user-space abstractions, APIs, services and virtual machine. This four-part workshop is aimed at embedded developers wanting to build touch-based embedded systems using Android. It will cover Android from the ground up, enabling developers to get a firm hold on the components that make up Android and how they need to be adapted to an embedded system.

Specifically, Karim tarts by introducing Android's overall architecture and then proceeds to peel Android's layer one-by-one. First, he covers the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), the open source project under which Android's source code is released. He then digs into the native Android user-space, Android's power tools, and covers how hardware support is implemented in Android. Given that Android is built on top of Linux, he also goes over some embedded Linux tricks and sees how the kernel is modified to support the Android user-space. In addition, he looks at the System Server, the Android Framework and core Android applications, and how to customize them.
