Droidcon was awesome last year, so naturally I will be attending again this year. It was a great oppertunity to “network” and meet lots of like minded android developers, it also gave me the chance to meet lots of interesting companies (start-up software companies, app/game studios, phone providers, hardware specialists) which I may be even more interested in this year as I will be looking for employment soon.
Along with all of this come the additional benefits of: pizza, beer, competitions (there were an insane amount of competitions last year), freebies, and more free beer!
For those of you unfamiliar with droidcon here is an excerpt from their website:
Droidcon London 2011 is Europe’s largest conference that exclusively covers Android development and applications. The conference will take place in London on 6th-7th October 2011.
Droidcon London 2011 has grown tremendously since last year, in line with the exponential interest in the Android platform. This year, upward of 600 Android enthusiasts will rub shoulders with the premier experts in the field to dig into every aspect of Android and its ever-growing ecosystem. High on the agenda this time around are Android for the Tablet, Android in the Enterprise, Android for Games, Android for business, Augmented Reality, multi-mobile and a whole lot more.
The first day will be community led with a full-day Barcamp and Democamp. The second day will be conference day, with presentations from some of the world’s foremost Android experts, including two Google Developer Advocates Richard Hyndman and Nick Butcher, Mark Murphy (CommonsWare), Al Sutton, and Kieran Gutteridge (I’ve not had the pleasure of meeting the other speakers yet). A full list of presenters is available here.
