Talk One: Building New User Experiences with Amazon Fire TV

Mobile development is not just about mobile devices anymore: Android scaled up from mobile devices to the TV screen, and developers have now the occasion to start building for a brand new use case: the 10-foot experience. In this session, we cover what's needed to bring high performing Media Streaming Android Apps to Fire TV and how to use powerful new tools to create rich living room experiences for your users.

Speaker: Mario Viviani



Talk Two: Alexa Everywhere

We are currently witnessing the greatest shift in consumer behaviour since the move from web experience to the ‘mobile moment’, and it’s all around us. Reminders, music, shopping, information, smart home control and more can now be summoned with just a simple utterance, enabled by devices which don’t resemble the grey-box computer or the smart phones we’ve grown used to. In this talk we will discuss:

- How the Alexa community creates more and more delightful experiences for customers every day

- How Alexa helps people with their daily lives in so many ways

- What we mean by Alexa being truly everywhere


Speaker: David Low
