Kick-starting Android Application Development
Matthias Kaeppler - Qype
Matthias will talk about kick-starting Android Application Development: "Due to its basis in Java, the Android SDK is a simple way to get started with app development, even for those developers not coming from a mobile background. Still, the Android framework lacks standard, re-usable solutions to many recurring tasks, making it more difficult than necessary to get an application off the ground quickly. Thanks to the amazing Android development community, we have plenty of utility libraries today that patch these holes in the Android framework. In this talk I will present a selection of these freely available libraries, which will help kick-start app development, by managing your objects and builds, and by offering ready-to-use solutions for the most common issues."

Motion Recognition with Android Devices
Gabor Paller - Sfonge Ltd
A built-in accelerometer is an almost obligatory feature of Android devices. This sensor enables the auto-rotation feature and is used e.g. in game applications for tilt-controlling the action. This presentation discusses the usage of accelerometer for detecting dynamic motion patterns. Shake or walk detection are very common use cases but exotic features like dance detection can also improve the usability of a specific application significantly. Android does not have platform-level motion recognizer module therefore developers need to be aware, how to detect motion patterns in the accelerometer's sample stream. We will examine the most frequently used motion detection methods. The effect on battery consumption will also be presented.
