Android Things makes developing connected embedded devices easy by providing the same Android development tools, best-in-class Android framework, and Google APIs that make developers successful on mobile. Android Things extends the core Android framework with additional APIs provided by the Things Support Library. These APIs allow apps to integrate with new types of hardware not found on mobile devices.
One of those new API surfaces is the Peripheral I/O API, which enables apps to use industry standard protocols and interfaces to connect to hardware peripherals. In this codelab, you will learn the basics of working with Peripheral I/O to connect low-level hardware to your apps.
More details can be found at the codelab webiste, including what you should install on your laptop before attending!
