Lecture Sessions
Introduction to Android and Key Froyo Features
Speaker: Tony Chan

Android has gained a lot of momentum since launch.  This session aims to provide an overview of the momentum, SDK, new features, and distribution through Android Market.

HTML5 in Chrome
Speaker: Arne Roomann-Kurrik

HTML5 rocks!  But what exactly is it, and when can I use it?  “HTML5” is commonly used to refer to a large set of specifications, many of which are still changing.  This talk will focus on Chrome’s implementation of these specifications, including real-world demos of technologies you can start using today.

The New Social Web: It’s about Open Standards
Speaker: Timothy Jordan

The Social Web is increasingly relying on open standards to exchange information.  This is bringing more and more services together and simplifying the landscape for developers.  In this session we’ll review several of the most significant open standards including Activity Streams, OAuth, and PubSubHubbub.  We’ll then dive into the Google Buzz API for an example of how they are implemented and used.  We’ll wrap up with a look at some existing applications, examples, and starter projects as well as a brief Q&A.
