Find the Design Zone in Hyde Park - the Exhibition Floor @ Droidcon London 2015!

Come and have your app's UX reviewed by a team of designers and developers including lead members of the Android community and Google Developer Experts. They will be able to give you some suggestions on how to improve your existing app, making your users happier.

Our panel of designers will be able to help you with all the questions you might have with that app design you're working on, or maybe that nagging question that your redesign efforts brought up but you really want to hear some other expert's opinion on.
