The topic of the June 13th meeting of Mobile Monday Detroit is the Android OS.  Speakers for the evening will be Jon Oberheide, CTO of Duo Security and Walt Capers, Senior Software Architect for Compuware.

The meeting takes place at Compuware headquarters in downtown Detroit and begins at 5:30 p.m.  Attendance is FREE, but registration is required at http://meetup.com/Mobile-Monday-Detroit . The event is sponsored by the Mobile Technology Association of Michigan (MTAM) and Compuware.

Jon Oberheide’s presentation will deconstruct Google’s Android mobile platform and its security model, from the base OS, to the Android middleware, up to some case studies using third-party applications.  As Android emerges as a leading OS in the mobile market, there’s much to be learned from both the victories and failures of Google’s design decisions and their impact on Android’s security model.  Jon will showcase some fun attacks used to subvert the base Android system, as well as third-party applications in use on Android handsets around the world.

Walt Capers will be discussing the use of Android NDK.  He will review porting C-code to the Android platform, which is very timely in light of Google’s recent push for the Android NDK r3 to enable higher-quality graphics for game development.

To further enhance the Android experience at this event, Verizon Wireless will present ‘Android Forum’ where you can experience Android and all the latest smartphones, tablets and gadgets from Verizon Wireless. Data experts from Verizon will be on hand to answer your questions. They will have all the latest devices for you to try out, including the DROID Charge by Samsung, HTC Thunderbolt, LG Revolution, Motorola XOOM and more.
