Asynchronous execution in Android

Malmö Droid


LEVEL: Intermediate

Malmö Droid is a group of developers and tech enthusiasts passionate about Android. We get together monthly to share knowledge about developing for the Android Platform. Everybody interested in the Green Robot is welcome.

We begin with meet and greet. Presentation starts at 17.45. There will be a break for something lighter to eat during the evening.


This session is all about asynchronous execution in Android: The must-know things of Androids Linux thread handling and the pros, cons and pitfalls of the asynchronous mechanisms — Java threads, Executor framework, Service, IntentService, AsyncTask, AsyncQueryHandler, Loaders and Handlers/Loopers. The talk focuses on improving application responsiveness and how to choose the best technique for background task execution.


Anders Göransson is a Software Architect at Sony Mobile Communications and author of the book "Efficient Android Threading".
