Droid World in San Francisco on February 7-8th; Free Android Developer Workshops


Here's a great event for developers. On February 7th and 8th at Moscone Center in San Francisco, Appsworld is holding their Droid World conference, and it's free to attend. There will be two full days of workshops at this conference, which will help you make your apps better and get the word out about your apps too. We all know building and releasing a new app is hard, especially to get word out about it. This year the event is sponsored by Barnes & Nobile and the event is of huge interest to any building apps for Android. With over 1.3 million new Android activations per day, it's the best platform to be creating apps for.

Droid World will have the following speakers during the two day event:

  • Carlo Longino, Director of Developer Marketing Services, Wireless Industry Partnership (WIP)
  • Steve Weiss, Senior Android Mobile Applications Developer, Chicago Tribune Media Group
  • Eric Schrag, Senior Android Developer, Comcast
  • Jim Steele, Author of the Android Developers Cookbook
  • Donn Felker, Author of Android Tablet Application Development for Dummies
  • Tom Chavez, NOOK Developer Evangelist, Barnes & Noble
