Over several months of blog posts, we’ve been telling the story of operating system support on the DragonBoard™ 410c. Here’s a simple, three-word summary to help you choose:
Android, Linux, Windows.
At Qualcomm, we truly love the enthusiasm of our interns. Take for example Cyrus Tabrizi, a student from Carnegie Mellon who was an intern with us last summer. He brought tremendous energy to his work every day, and helped us out with several projects using the DragonBoard 410c.
It is amazing what a team of individuals can do when the pressure is on. Take for example the recent hackathon that took place before the start of the 2015 TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco, California. Developers from around the world competed in this 24-hour test of endurance to create new apps and build new products from scratch, and in many cases using technologies they were getting their hands on for the very first time.
Would you rather spend time profiling your app or adding new features?
Most software developers would rather work on their app than profile it. The app profiling process is not always intuitive, and app profiling tools generate complicated graphs which you then have to interpret. Often power and thermal measurements are not provided and its not clear how your app stacks up compared to others.
