Today’s Android Workshop was fun – especially meeting lots of interesting people. The audience of around 100 people had the pleasure to meet Dan Morrill and Jason Chen from Google, Mountain View. After an introductory presentation, Dan and Jason had a really though time answering thousands of questions. The audience was quite diverse – I meet people from all over Germany, Austria and even a very devoted team from Canada.

I was especially curious about the next SDK of Android and hoped to learn some new details about it. Well, I guess we still have to be patient for a couple of weeks to find out what will be fixed and which APIs will be added… It’s going to be released “soon”. From what I heard, one could conclude it might be released in mid-February. My personal guess is February, 20th. There’s one concrete thing Dan said about the new SDK: it will come with a completely new UI. That was great new for me, because I was not particular happy with Android’s current look and feel. So, I am really looking forward to it!

    Hi,

    Dan has been even more precise: It will sport the new look which has been developed by TAT (The Astonishing Tribe). TAT is member of the alliance and they did a lot of interesting UE work for mobiles in the past already. I worked with them in a UE project for another vendor.

    Eager to see with what they will come up with.

    There will be other UE solutions too later on.

    Anyways: The event has been very interesting. It looked like they did it more “ad hoc” without a big plan but they where available for tons of questions.

    Kudos to Google for putting it up!

    cheers

    Juergen
