Android Developers Backstage: Episode 10: ART, pART 1

Tor and Chet may not know ART, but they know what they like. In this episode, the first in a two-pART series, they talk with Anwar Ghuloum from the ART, or Android Runtime team. ART is the new runtime for Android, which came online in the KitKat release as an alternative to Dalvik. Now ART is not only enabled by default: it’s the only runtime. We’ll talk about what it is, how it works, why it’s better, and the future and very meaning of ART in modern society.
