ZOMG! AnDevCon starts next week!! We’ve got a pretty packed schedule on Wednesday, dropping all kinds of knowledge. Come check out our classes:
Hacking APKs for Fun and Profit (Mostly for Fun), Part I
From 10:00 am – 11:45 am
Hacking APKs for Fun and Profit (Mostly for Fun), Part II
From 11:30 am – 12:45 pm
Come see David Teitelbaum dive deep into the internals of Android in this two-part, 150-minute class. You will explore the wonders of Dalvik bytecode, smali syntax, decompilation tools, patching techniques, and common methods you can use to (try to) protect your apps.
Extremely hands-on, you’ll be downloading a very popular app, modifying it, and messing around with its behavior. Even if you’re not that interested in APK hacking, you’ll leave this class with the sort of deep appreciation for Dalvik that makes good Android developers great.
And then from 1:45 pm – 2:15 pm Alex Bannerjee and Daniel Joyce are presenting:
Have you ever wanted to immerse yourself in the world of Android instrumentation, but only had 30 minutes or so to do it? You’re in luck because our 30 minutes will be jam-packed with all kinds of Android instrumentation goodness. This sponsored class will teach you the ins and outs of Android instrumentation and test automation. Come to learn how to effectively use the Monkey, MonkeyRunner and Robotium test-automation tools to better exercise your Android apps. You will be sure to leave with greater knowledge and better practices for Android test automation. Plus, you might even leave with a nifty new Apkudo t-shirt. Nice one.
But wait, there’s more!
Josh Matthews will be one of the speakers during the Lightning Talks from 5:30 – 7:00 pm! Without giving too much away, we will say that you’ll want to be there for a super exciting announcement. Don’t miss it.
On Thursday and Friday, be sure to drop by our booth (605/606)! The first 100 people to bring an APK will get a snazzy t-shirt and anyone who checks in on Foursquare to the Apkudo booth will get a Red Bull! While supplies last, anyway. What can we say? We’re a thirsty crew.
Until AnDevCon, Android Devs!
