Devices, hands-on coding plus pizza and beer - what more could you want? Come along to an interactive, hands on technical workshop focused around Amazon Fire TV.
We'll see together how to develop high quality Android apps for TV in MINUTES using new development tools by Amazon, the Fire App Builder. More information can be found here
Not enough? There’ll be special gifts for all participants (well Xmas is just around the corner!) and of course fellow devs to work alongside.
