By many measures, Android is the most widely-used operating system in the world. But Python development on the platform remains quite rare.

Fortunately there are several active projects working to improve this. In this talk, you'll learn about:

  • Why Android support is important for the future of Python.
  • How Android compares to other platforms, and the unique challenges it presents.
  • What's needed to make mobile Python development practical, including build tools, GUI libraries, and binary package support.
  • The available options for running Python on Android, and how to choose which one is best for you.
