Where in-depth analysis of a system is beyond the scope of the book, the author provides links to related documents and key source files. But not much for the Android application developers. This book covers mostly 2. Some of Karim's recent mandates include leading development teams delivering products based on a variety of different platforms. The only thing with this book is that he does not give more insight into actually creating an Embedded Android device with different hardware etc. I highly recommend this course for any engineers who work on embedded Android projects.

More for the system developer not the app developer. For decades I have done low level development on systems ranging from mainframes and supercomputers and vast distributed telecommunications systems to tiny microcontrollers and everything in between. I look forward to seeing where headless Android takes you. His embedded Android training far surpassed my expectations. For those interested in getting Android up and running on a new piece of hardware, this book will serve as a guide that tells you how to download Android and how to start building and customising it to your requirements.
In 22 years of professional software development, this has easily been the most valuable training session I've attended. I also like how the book explains Android's Linux roots, and explains the differences between the two. Karim provides a well organized presentation of the crucial concepts, and enables students to gain a full appreciation of not only how the Android architecture works, but also why it works that way. It combined broad overviews followed by the kind of detail needed to understand what is going on under the covers. Karim is an excellent instructor and can share his knowledge in a very appealing and convincing way! I found it to be well organized, up to date, and highly informative in an area where reading the source code is typically your only option. Hands-on examples clearly demonstrated ideas from lecture. Our instructors' value is especially prized during our class' hands-on sessions, which occupy more than half of class time, since they are able to pull on their vast experience in assisting attendees in isolating the source of issues they encounter and explaining the underlying theory and wider context pertaining to that topic.

This class has made my task from seeming impossible to just hard. In any case, this book should be considered required reading for anyone interesting in porting Android to new hardware, or creating custom source-level mods. The hands on exercises were good. This class charts a path between them. The book has a breadth wise approach to all topics where it almost covers the key topics but it limits itself to provide only less information about each topic but when this book is used along with the Android Internals Confectioners cookbook. Sharing is fundamental to what we do every day.
And at the price Karim charges this class is a bargain. Karim Yaghmour has a wealth of knowledge regarding Android development and Linux. And it has been way too long in coming. I was completely new to the topic. It also serves as a good book that gets you started on understanding just how Android works from the system point of view; what are its underlying services, what they do and how A fascinating book that serves as a good introduction to the internals of the Android Operating System.
