First talk about analysing Memory usage on android ever?

I am pleased to announce that I will be speaking  at the MobileMonday Developer Day
in D├╝sseldorf on 23.2.2010
The talk (in German in English!)  will be about analyzing the memory usage analysis of android applications using the Eclipse Memory Analyzer.

Optimierung des Speicherverbrauchs von Android Anwendungen mit Hilfe des Eclipse Memory Analyzers

Die Minimierung des Speicherverbrauchs ist ein sehr wichtiger Aspekt bei der Entwicklung performanter Android Anwendungen.
Im Vortrag werden die wichtigsten Konzepte zur Analyse des Speicherverbrauchs mittels Heap Dumps vorgestellt.
Anhand von realen Android Anwendungen wird live demonstriert wie der Eclipse Memory Analyzer  die Identifikation von "Hot Spots" unterst├╝tzt und damit eine wichtige Grundlage zur Optimierung liefert.
