Tracks

Silicon Valley Code Camp has chosen a few subject areas that have been organized into tracks. These tracks are designed and scheduled so that if you have a specific interest in the track theme you can attend all the sessions associated with that track in an order that makes sense with minimal overlap. Tracks are always of the highest quality content and are organized by a track lead, typically from one of our top sponsors. This does not mean that there are not other sessions in the same theme as the track, but those other sessions may overlap.


Android Device Drivers with Emphasis on Android Binder
Communication between application components in different processes is made possible in Android by a specific IPC (Inter-Process Communication) approach. This is necessary because each application on the platform runs in its own process, and processes are intentionally separated from one another. Android IPC is built as a character device driver. In this track, we will start with basics of character device drivers and learn how to implement an IPC mechanism like the one in Android as a character device driver. Moreover, we will analyze why Android need a completely new IPC mechanism while there are already quite a few IPC technologies available in the market.
Containers
Containers simplify the development, testing and deployment of an application. This track is a curated list of talks related to containers. There are other talks related to the topic as well. Feel free to promote this track to your community as you see fit. That’s always a big help for getting the word out about our awesome sessions and speakers.
HERE Technologies
HERE Technologies is the #1 location platform

Mapping has always been about discovery. For centuries, two-dimensional maps guided us through the unknown to our destination. But we are no longer limited by the edges of our physical maps.

In 1985, we began with the simple goal to digitize mapping and pioneer in-car navigation systems. Over the next three decades, as NAVTEQ and Nokia, we’ve built a legacy in mapping technology.

Today, we're creating living three-dimensional maps that grow upwards, breathing with layers of information and insights.

Management
Fewer than 5% of software development managers have had a single day of training in management before becoming managers. We become managers thinking we can conquer management as easily as we did coding. It turns out managing requires both a dramatic change of focus and a whole lot of new skills. Whether you’re contemplating a move to leading and managing, or you’ve been managing for years, skip to the front of the line with this year’s Management Track thought leaders, invited and organized by Ron Lichty, VP Engineering advisor and coach at Ron Lichty Consulting, Inc. and co-author of Managing the Unmanageable: Rules, Tools, and Insights for Managing Software People and Teams.
