G. Blake Meike discusses concurrency in Android, focusing on AsyncTask – what can be done with it, what problems using it and how to circumvent them.
G. Blake Meike is an engineer with more than 30 years of experience, much of it with Java. He has built systems as large as Amazon’s massively scalable AutoScaling service and as small as a pre-Android OSS/Linux based Java-like platform for cell-phones. He is currently deep in Android. He is co-author of two Android books: “Android Application Development” and “Programming Android”.
Strange Loop is a multi-disciplinary conference that aims to bring together the developers and thinkers building tomorrow's technology in fields such as emerging languages, alternative databases, concurrency, distributed systems, mobile development, and the web. Strange Loop was created in 2009 by software developer Alex Miller and is now run by a team of St. Louis-based friends and developers under Strange Loop LLC, a for-profit but not particularly profitable venture.
Thank you for your talk!
A new Activity can be opened and the callback will be gracefully managed to point to the new activity. The app can be closed and the result will be queued and delivered to the app when a new Activity is launched. I personally wanted to take AsyncTask to a new level, for my projects, and for the benefit of the entire Android community.
