Android Things Hackster Contest

Posted by Dave Smith,
Developer Advocate for IoT



Android Things
lets you build professional, mass-market products on a trusted platform, without
previous knowledge of embedded system design. With Android Things you get a
turnkey hardware solution and an easy-to-use software development platform based
on Android Studio and the Android SDK -- making it easy to build designs that
scale to production. Android Things is currently in developer preview and we'd
love to see what you can build with href="https://android-developers.googleblog.com/2017/08/android-things-developer-preview-5.html">our
latest release.



Today we are announcing a contest with Hackster and NXP for developers to
showcase their use of Android Things with other Google developer platforms.
