Want to learn to build beautiful Flutter apps that users can navigate through easily, fetching data along the way? Join this two-day hands-on workshop with Brian Egan!

Lara Martin - My Highlights from droidcon London 2017

"Droidcon London was 2 days long, had 5 tracks and around 70 speakers. Unfortunately I still don't know how to split myself and attend all talks! Here I bring you my choices and highlights"

Michael Munzer - Back Home From droidcon London 2017

"This year me and my colleague Maksim attended the Droidcon London. Attending a conference is always a great thing to do. You have the opportunity getting to know other developers and can discuss important pieces of your day to day job. Sometimes you talk about weird platform behaviour, but mostly you have fun exchanging ideas which help you and your team grow.

After attending this conference for the first time last year, I already was pretty confident it will be a great success this year as well (which it was). In retrospective, the biggest difference was that it got even more awesome."

Mez Says - droidcon London 2017

"Droidcon is an annual Android developer conference that is held around the world. At the end of October London played host. This was a special Droidcon for me as it was my first work related conference I had been to and I enjoyed every moment of it. My only regret is that I wish I had gone to more of these earlier on in my career. I would even go as far to say that I should have paid for it out of my own pocket and used holiday time to attend. The amount I was exposed to in terms of how build Android applications and the community was incredible."

Lara Martin - My Highlights from droidcon London 2017

"Droidcon London was 2 days long, had 5 tracks and around 70 speakers. Unfortunately I still don't know how to split myself and attend all talks! Here I bring you my choices and highlights"

Michael Munzer - Back Home From droidcon London 2017

"This year me and my colleague Maksim attended the Droidcon London. Attending a conference is always a great thing to do. You have the opportunity getting to know other developers and can discuss important pieces of your day to day job. Sometimes you talk about weird platform behaviour, but mostly you have fun exchanging ideas which help you and your team grow.

After attending this conference for the first time last year, I already was pretty confident it will be a great success this year as well (which it was). In retrospective, the biggest difference was that it got even more awesome."

Mez Says - droidcon London 2017

"Droidcon is an annual Android developer conference that is held around the world. At the end of October London played host. This was a special Droidcon for me as it was my first work related conference I had been to and I enjoyed every moment of it. My only regret is that I wish I had gone to more of these earlier on in my career. I would even go as far to say that I should have paid for it out of my own pocket and used holiday time to attend. The amount I was exposed to in terms of how build Android applications and the community was incredible."
