2 DAY CONFERENCE

Droidcon London 2013

Topics covered at #droidconuk

Thursday, 24th - Friday, 25th October in London

63 experts spoke.

Overview

Droidcon London 2013, the biggest Android conference in Europe, took place on October 24th - 25th, where hundreds of Android developers found out about the latest innovations, ideas, and devices in Android technology!

We had a bumper crop of top experts, including creators of some of the best tech in Android - like Hans Dockter, founder of Gradleware (the industry standard build system); Eric Lafortune, pioneer of Proguard and Dexguard for Android, vastly improving app security; and Nicoll Hunt, a rising star in mobile gaming with his one-man studio I Fight Bears. Android enthusiasts in attendance found out how these big names became successes, all the ins and outs of their businesses and technologies, and their vision for the future!

Not only did they benefit from the expertise of these leading lights, but the first day - as always - was uniquely community focused with our barcamp and democamp!

We were also proud to be supported by some great sponsors this year including Epson, Sony, and Paypal, who gave developers access to their next generation of Android devices!

Excited? Share it!
