Course Overview

Course Outline

Our Android Internals course offers a comprehensive exploration of every facet of the Android Operating System. It commences with an in-depth examination of its historical evolution and extends to a profound analysis of its core architecture. The curriculum encompasses a thorough study of critical components, including the Android Open Source Project, Google Mobile Services, and the intricate layers of the platform, such as the Kernel, HAL, ART, NDK, and Java/Kotlin API Framework. Students will develop a profound understanding of the Android boot process, system services, communication with system services, application framework, memory management, file system, and security, which is achieved through both by Linux process isolations (Sandbox) and SELinux.
Furthermore, the course covers Android Studio for app development, command-line tools like ADB, app components, intents, permissions, and various aspects of app development, ranging from GUI fundamentals to multithreading. It provides hands-on exercises for ADB usage and delves into Android Native Development Kit (NDK), JNI, and Android in-kernel changes, with a particular focus on Binder and inter-process communication. Whether you are a newcomer to Android or seeking to enhance your expertise, this course equips you with the knowledge and skills to master the Android Operating System.
