Dimitris Kolovos introduces the Android mobile
development platform (android.com) by presenting its underlying
technologies and the building blocks that the platform provides to
enable the development of applications targeted at contemporary
mobile devices with limited resources (memory, battery etc.).
This seminar focuses on the challenges associated with
application development for such devices, and the solutions Android
provides to address them (automated application lifecycle
management, platform evolution, internationalisation).
The seminar also includes a brief hands-on introduction to the
Eclipse-based Android Development Tools.
