From Zero to Playstore, Doug Mcintosh, T-Mobile

A general overview of a drumming app, covering:  Google License check, AdMob, In App Billing, and some NDK/jni. 

Applications of the Model View Presenter Pattern, Peter Oh, Offerup 

Over the last couple years, the Model View Presenter (MVP) pattern has seen surge in popularity for Android App development.  At OfferUp we’ve begun implementing MVP for new features as well as older ones.  For this talk I will go over some of the clean architecture guidelines provided by Google, what benefits we hope to leverage with MVP, as well as discuss some concrete implementations of MVP which utilize Android UI elements of varying life cycles.

Android Awareness API, Hasmik Kalantarian, Disney

The new Awareness APIs, announced at this year's Google I/O, provides information about a user's current situation in an easy to consume way. The potential for this API is great as the information exposed can be applied to many different types of applications. We will go over briefly on what is capable with the Awareness APIs, followed by how you can get started, and finish with some ideas of how this new context data can be applied with different types of applications.

Making Android Apps with Intelligence, Margaret Maynard-Reid, Eastside Android organizer 

Machine learning is everywhere: from personal assistants to self driving cars to robots. Machine learning is not new, but the exciting news is that the various machine learning services are now available to app developers, some are even open source e.g. TensorFlow. In this talk I will give an overview of how you can incorporate the machine learning services with your Android apps without any deep expertise in ML.
