droidcon2gether Weekend 2017

Topics covered at #droidcon2gether

Saturday, 28th - Sunday, 29th October in London


Following two days of awesome fun at droidcon 2017, jump in right away with the latest technology on hand, join fellow droidcon attendees and some of the most talented coders and experts, for our traditional, weekend-long droidcon2gether event and create something amazing!

droidcon2gether will provide the perfect opportunity to collaborate with members of Skills Matter community, taking part in challenges. With industry experts available across the two days and a number of workshops taking place, join us to complete a challenge based around droidcon. A number of prizes will be won throughout the weekend, where last year's prizes included an Amazon Echo, a Sony Xperia and a HooToo VR Headset.

You can come along with your own team, but it's also cool if you're on your own - we will be putting together teams on Saturday!


Get hands on with Android Things!

Droidcon 2017 is excited to be working alongside Google to bring you an awesome community workshop! Here you will learn everything you need to know about developing IoT applications on Android Things. Using Android Studio and a developer kit, you will see how easy it is to use your Android knowledge to interact with hardware in the real world.
