"Integrating Android apps with RESTful web interfaces" Hands-on at OSCON

Taken from Official Android Developers Blog

"This year at OSCON we and O’Reilly are co-presenting Android Hands-on. The event is on the evening of Wednesday, July 21 after the Expo-hall reception. Led by Google Android experts, the Hands-on will run from 7:00 pm-10:00 pm, and will be intense, technical, and structured. The goal is that you leave the room with foundation skills for writing interesting code for an open-source stack that runs on a pocket-sized Internet-connected device.

Some specific topics we’ll cover:
-Porting existing C codebases to Android
-Integrating Android apps with RESTful web interfaces
-UI patterns and best practices

Sign-up in advance is required, and is restricted to registered full conference attendees and speakers. Spaces are limited and will be given out on a first-come-first-served basis."

Video: “Navigating the Web of Things” demo by Alcatel-Lucent

"The Web of Things builds on the Internet of Things, proposing the extension of the Web to the physical environment of the user. Using Web design principles, one can create services and applications which interact with the real world, and the objects that compose it. In this demo, Mathieu Boussard, Bell Labs Application domain, shows the home of a user through a number of connected objects, as well as objects in a remote location, the interaction between these objects and devices, and the creation of services through three interfaces."
