*Google is working on Fuchsia

Fuchsia (https://fuchsia.googlesource.com/) is an operating system designed to work on different devices: from mobile phones, to tablets and computers. At Fuchsia’s core, the natural language should provide simplicity and fast programming. Fuchsia is based on (and integrates) Android and Chrome, but instead of the Linux kernel, it uses the advanced micro-kernel Zircon .

Google is seeking integration of different environments, which will make the software developers’ work easier in the future. For this, Fuchsia business adopts open source licensing.

In the future, Fuchsia may be a big competitor to Android, and we will probably see new mobile phones being programmed in Fuchsia instead of Android. Mobile phone programming is covered by our course PUCAM (Cloud Services and Mobile Applications Design).
