Android memory usage analysis slides available

Yesterday, I gave a talk at the mobile monday android developer day in Düsseldorf.The slides about analysing the memory usage of android applications with the Eclipse Memory Analyzer are available now. Note it might be worth to download the pdf because it contains some notes.
The slides should be interesting for general java developers, not only for android developers.
Also, I want to thank everyone who showed up. It was great talking to all of you!

Thanks Lars!
Finding the "right" pictures is fun, but very time consuming.
Let me know in case you visit WDF.

Hi Markus,

This looks interesting. What phone were you using for the test or was it the emulator? I would assume you need a developer or rooted phone to go digging through /data. Could it be set to write to /sdcard?

With your permission, I'd like to explore this further as part of the Sequoyah project. I'd like to make some of those manual steps you describe be more automated so the rank and file Android developers (not Eclipse gurus) can have access to your work.

Hi Eric,
Works on the phone (rooted)
as well as on the emulator. Go ahead, and let me know in case you have any questions!

I'm reading the slides and I'm interested in what memory usage concern on android applications. Was this talk recorded? Is there any way to listen/see it? I would appreciate to hear it.

Thanks in advance,
Sebastián Treu
