Droidcon is India's first national Android conference and is a part of the worldwide Droidcon series of events. This is a technical conference, for developers by developers.
Sessions are for 45 minutes each (30 speaking, 5 Q&A, 10 transition). We will have three parallel tracks over two days, with 8 sessions per track per day. Workshop sessions are 60 minutes each (50 speaking, 10 minutes for transition between rooms).
We recommend you illustrate your sessions with demos of your own code and applications. Please refrain from making a pitch without explaining how it works, as your primary audience will be developers.
Sessions will be ranked by community voting and selected by a program committee with representation from the local community and the international Droidcon events. Confirmed speakers get free tickets to the event. Anyone who proposes to speak but isn't confirmed will still get early bird pricing. If you've proposed to speak, there's no need to rush to buy a ticket. We'll be in touch with you.
Participants may reserve their tickets from http://droidcon.doattend.com.
The event will have three parallel tracks. The list below will be consolidated down to three by the program committee.
A generic approach to USB development on Android - develop powerful peripherals for Android phones and tablets
This would enable Android developers to use the USB device class for data transfer between an Android device and an external USB Host or USB device. Since ADK and BeagleBone boards are already showacased at the conference it would be a great Boost. USB is one of the most powerful and reliable communication interface. On Android USB development is very easy, it will let you build some cool devices !
Large number of Android tablets are out there with powerful USB Hosts. Many Android phones are coming out with USB OTG. In this session you will learn how to transport data over USB to an external USB device. Simple devices such as Mouse, Keyboard and other HID devices will be demoed. Another demo of how USB interface can be used to develop peripherals such as pedometer for Android mobiles will be demoed.
Speaker has lot of experience with USB firmware development across various USB devices and has fair bit of experience with USB framework on Android. Currently an Applications Engineer at Cypress Semiconductor and founder of the technology website www.tantrajnaan.com
