Developer Workshop #1: Building Android for the Cloud
In the cloud era, most software projects have shifted from asking "What hardware architecture should be chosen for my backend?" to "Which cloud configuration should be used for my backend?" Bringing up a cloud server has become an obvious choice for any Linux- or Windows-based deployment. As Android emerges as the new Embedded Linux for a growing number of industries, it only makes sense to consider its cloud application as a server. This session will discuss why and how Android can be brought on the cloud system, and on any cloud infrastructure, using AWS (Amazon Web Services) as an example.

Developer Workshop #5: Enhancing the mobile user experience through good tactile design

In an ocean of apps, how do you differentiate yours? Cool graphics and sounds are now commonplace and no longer leave the same impression on mobile users. With touch-screens as the UI of choice in mobile devices, tactile feedback is still one of the most overlooked yet valuable aspects of the mobile experience, especially in games. This session will discuss the value of touch design in mobile projects as well as core design principles to follow when implementing mobile tactile effects. Both gaming and non-gaming examples will be provided with hands-on tactile demonstrations for the audience to experience.

Takeaway
Attendees will learn that tactile feedback is a communication channel to be used to improve user experiences. Attendees will see how design and implementation of tactile feedback is easier than they may think.
