Chet is the lead of the UI Toolkit team in Android. His technology passion is graphics, whether it's animation libraries, performance, or graphical effects. In his spare time, he enjoys talking to developers about how things work, at events like this. And he likes talking about himself in the third person.
Dan is the lead software engineer on the Android System UI team, which is responsible for notifications, the status bar and settings, lock screen, and all the other beautiful pixels on your device that don't belong to any other app. Prior to Google, he worked on UI and apps at Palm and Be and briefly flirted with the whole indie software developer thing. Dan holds a PhD in computer science from Rice University.
Adam helps make the little green robots in his job as Android framework engineer at Google. He has shipped a few mobile games, an online collectible tactics game, some browser-based game frameworks and around 15 API releases of Android.
