Android: A peek under the hood

Presented by: Brad Hollander
Time: Friday, Jan. 10, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Over the years, Android has become one of the most widely used operating systems in the world. Boasting 2.5 billion active devices, it can be found running on practically any hardware, from high-end flagship phones to smartwatches and IOT devices. Despite this massive popularity, the inner workings of Android are still a mystery to most. In this talk we'll jump on the command line and investigate a running Android system to gain a better understanding of all the things Android does for you. We'll look at what an app actually is and how it runs from the perspective of Android's Linux underpinnings, and we'll see what differentiates Android from a typical Linux distribution.
