Our Android porting training course shows how to port Android to a typical embedded hardware platform. It is intended for engineers who are starting out with a fresh Android implementation or who need to understand and modify an existing one. During the hands-on sessions attendees use the source code from the Android OpenSource Project (AOSP) and go through the steps of implementing Android on a common development board with an ARM Cortex A series processor.  Emphasis is on understanding how the Android build system works and which components need to be modified to suit particular hardware.
