Inside Android's User Interface - Karim Yaghmour, Opersys

Sign up or log in to save this event to your list and see who's attending!


Android is a very complex stack comprising several dozens of novel components and moving parts. Still, it's intrinsically a user-centric system and, therefore, its parts which deal with user interface are of special interest for anyone aiming to put Android in a device. This talk will examine the internals of Android's user-facing components. Specifically, we will cover the inner-workings and interactions of the Window Manager, Surface Flinger, Input Method Manager, and the rest of the system. We will also cover key display and input components such as the Status Bar, Soft Keyboard and Notifications.
This talk will be especially useful to developers intending to use Android in user-facing embedded systems, those needing to implement support for their graphics hardware and anyone interested in the internals of Android's graphics and input layers.
