droidcon London Party - Thursday 27th October


Did you enjoy the first day of droidcon London? It's party time now! Visit the Skills Matter booth during droidcon for a Party Ticket (tickets are limited to 400 only) to enjoy some drinks at Codenode's {{SpaceBar}}, some dance moves and 1980's arcade games and share your experience and droidcon impressions with other droidcon attendees.

As the first day of droidcon London wraps up, we will have our very own droidcon double decker routemaster buses bringing you from the BDC (Business Design Centre, 52 Upper Street) to CodeNode. Buses will be ready outside the BDC once the conference ends on Thursday 27th October (straight after Chet Haase's keynote) and will be running till as late as 8pm to bring you to CodeNode!

If you prefer the good old London Underground, CodeNode is a five-minute walk from Moorgate Tube Station, which is just two stops from Angel (the closest station to the BDC, where droidcon London takes place), and it's served by the Northern Line.

Come along from the conference or meet us at CodeNode for an evening of good tunes and drinks – a chance to share your experience and ideas with each other in a relaxed and fun atmosphere! And if you need some help finding your way home/to your hotel once the party's over, please visit the Transport for London's website which contains full information on how to move around in London.

Join us for the droidcon London Bytes evening events at CodeNode

Want to stay in the loop with the latest developments within the Android community?

Join us at the brand new droidcon London Bytes series we'll be hosting at CodeNode leading up to droidcon London 2016 and 2017!
