Was happy to be a speaker at the ‘Google-Android for Executives Conference ’09’ organized by ABO Ventures, held in Bangalore on 5 Mar ’09.

I made a brief presentation entitled “Android – A Look Under the Hood”, which was pretty well received. It included a couple of demos on the Android Developer Phone (ADP1):
– changing brightness of the LCD screen (using a shell script, low-level hardware access via /sys – not the recommended way to do it!)
– flashing the device: saving and restoring the bootloader, kernel and system/app images.

Some pics taken during the flashing process below:
