Android has come a long ways since its humble beginnings in 2003. What began as a desire to develop, in Andy Rubin's words, "smarter mobile devices that are more aware of its owner's location and preferences" has grown into a behemoth which can now be found running on cars and washing machines.
Due to its open source nature, it was only a matter of time before the independent developer community would rise up, and extend, Android. XDA Developers www.xda-developers.com was founded with the sole desire of creating an environment where developers could share, collaborate, and create. It was here where famous projects like AOKP, CyanogenMod, OmniROM, and Paranoid Android began. XDA has now grown to over 6 million members around the world. You will explore how the developer community has evolved, and even struggled, since Android began.
