Beginning this month, experts from the Android developer community will gather in cities around the world for a series of Intel-hosted Android Codefests. Developers will have an opportunity to meet fellow developers in San Francisco, Sao Paulo, Beijing and seven other cities worldwide for two days of hands-on technical sessions, hacking competitions, prizes and more.
As a leading contributor to Android, Intel is hosting these events where Android developers can explore new opportunities, participate in discussions and have questions answered by Intel representatives. We’ll provide devices for testing, technical support and cash prizes for the best ported apps. As part of the programming, attendees can take part in tutorials, including “Why Build Android Apps with HTML5” and “Testing and Debugging for X86 Devices.” Developers will also learn more about available tools, debugging, optimization, and how to compile a Native Developer Kit (NDK) app for x86 in only 30 minutes!
Intel is focused on delivering useful solutions for the whole environment. As part of our commitment to supporting Android developers, last month we introduced 64-bit kernel support for Android at the Intel Developer Forum. It provides more than 4GB system memory to help enable better performance for applications. Our latest NDK will also allow Android developers to write C or C++ code for Android applications, helping to boost performance. Learn more about our work with Android here.
Intel is making it fun and easy to develop on Android. If you would like to attend an upcoming Android Codefest in your city (or close to it!) visit the site, and as always, find helpful resources at Intel Developer Zone.
P.S. The NYC session is coming right up, Nov. 1-2nd!
