2 DAY CONFERENCE

Droidcon London 2014

Topics covered at #droidconuk

Thursday, 30th - Friday, 31st October at Business Design Centre, London

73 experts. will be speaking. Starts at 9:00 AM.

Join Europe’s largest and most exciting grassroots Android developer conference, the only place offering the chance to hear more than 40 tech leaders from around the world and from industries including animation, electronics, gaming and travel, share their expertise about the world’s most popular mobile platform.

Droidcon London is a celebration of the most innovative developers who are contributing to the incredible growth Android has seen in the last 12 months - so come and learn more about this buzzing world featuring everything from games to glasses and even gaming tables!

What is Droidcon London?

Droidcon London brings you far-reaching new technologies and concepts and a wave of exciting innovation in the Android world. Last year, we featured bleeding-edge devices such as a smart mirror and washbasin from Seraku and smart watches from i’m Watch.

This year, we’ll be bringing you the very latest Android devices including Epson’s Moverio BT-200 smart glasses - 60% lighter, half the size and more comfortable than their predecessor. Not only will you get to play with all of this bleeding edge tech, you’ll also have the opportunity of listening to world class speakers - including this year’s keynote, Android SDK engineer Chet Haase who’s well known for his recent appearances on the "DevBytes” YouTube series.

Also making appearances will be Cyril Mottier of Capitaine Train, author of ‘Smashing Android UI’ Juhani Lehtimaki, Etsy developer Lisa Neigut, Progaurd author Eric Lafortune, Mozilla developer Lucas Rocha, PayPal developer Tim Messerschmidt, and other pioneers of leading Android technology from Cyanogen, Google, and Novoda.

Gaming Zone

We’re pleased to say that we’ve added a dedicated zone for gaming at this year’s Droidcon London.

Building on the fun and feedback from last year, when we threw down the gauntlet to challenge Nicoll Hunt on ‘Fist of Awesome’, we’ll be featuring some innovative games including Nicoll Hunt and Alan Zucconi’s new game ACCELERUNNER, Gaslight Game’s ‘Master of the Seven Teas', Manduka Games from Spain, as well as our very own Mad Hatter from Wonderland!

Community

On top of excellent speakers, fantastic exhibitions of new technology, and plenty of opportunities for you to make new contacts and create new partnerships, we’ll also be bringing back our popular community-focused events, Barcamp, Democamp, and the Hackathon weekend!

At Barcamp, you can propose your presentation or talk and the community will vote on it. Meanwhile, if you apply for Democamp, you’ll be able to demonstrate your new app or business in front of our panel of judges and have a chance of winning some funding for it!
