Droidcon 2011

Published 10/28/2011 by Admin in Android | Software Development

So I'm a month into my second term of MSc Mobile Computing and its been a crazy few weeks... 

First off I was lucky enough to be invited to Droidcon 2011 on a student ticket to start the first week back at uni. This was probably the best way to start a term where the main focus was Android development. We spent 2 days attending talks from some of the best in the industry, making connections, and learning things about Android and mobile development in general which would usually take months to find out. 

Day 1 was the barcamp day, which after an opening introduction from the Droidcon guys and a bit of networking with the people around us, everyone was invited to propose a talk they had in mind.

If the audience agreed then it was added to the schedule. There was a great array of topics from how to make money with in-app ad's, to tips on creating the perfect UI.

In the evening the event changed to the Democamp where developers had the opportunity to show off their creations to the rest of the conference. 

Day 2 was the main conference day which was packed full of talks from all areas of the industry. Again some really interesting talks and a good insight into the future of Android. 

For those who weren't able to make droidcon; I would recommend checking out their site, along with the skills matter site as they video all of the presentations from the 2 days and make them available for free.
