12:00 PM - 12:02 PM EST - Opening for Android Day on Google Open Source Live
Todd Kjos - Software Engineer
Sandeep Patil - Software Engineer
12:02 PM - 12:18 PM EST - The Linux Kernel in AOSP (GKI + ACK + ABI)
The Android (Linux) Kernel is the foundation for every Android device. Our team provides the Generic Kernel Image (GKI) based on the Android Common Kernel (ACK), a single kernel suitable for all devices. We will talk through the development processes that allow us to give strong guarantees about stability, flexibility and compatibility.
Matthias Männich - Software Engineer
12:18 PM - 12:34 PM EST - Crosvm
How to fold software onto the edge of a fractal.
Steve Moreland - Staff Software Engineer
12:34 PM - 1:54 PM EST - Extending the open-source KVM hypervisor for Android
At the heart of the Android Virtualisation Framework introduced in Android 13 is an extension to the Linux kernel's KVM hypervisor known as Protected KVM (pKVM). This extension provides a powerful isolation primitive for guest virtual machines and is built entirely from open-source software, working with the upstream communities to enable hardware-accelerated virtualisation at scale.
This session will discuss the design of pKVM and how the hypervisor benefits from its tight integration with the Linux kernel along with an update on the upstreaming status and remaining challenges for complete integration with mainline.
Will Deacon - Software Engineer
1:54 PM - 1:11 PM EST - Cloud Android Update
Update on new features in Cloud Android, a Reference Virtual Device in AOSP. Cloud Android enables local development of Android platform changes without needing a physical device to test with.
Alistair Delva - Software Engineer
1:11 PM - 2:00 PM EST - After Party
After livestreaming the sessions, we will host an After Party where you can participate in an exciting quiz, and hear from our speakers and emcees!
