Droidcon India

Droidcon's first Indian edition

Droidcon is India’s first national Android conference and is a part of the worldwide Droidcon series of events. This is a technical conference, for developers by developers.

Sessions are for 45 minutes each (30 speaking, 5 Q&A, 10 transition). We will have three parallel tracks over two days, with 8 sessions per track per day. Workshop sessions are 60 minutes each (50 speaking, 10 minutes for transition between rooms).

We recommend you illustrate your sessions with demos of your own code and applications. Please refrain from making a pitch without explaining how it works, as your primary audience will be developers.

Sessions will be ranked by community voting and selected by a program committee with representation from the local community and the international Droidcon events. Confirmed speakers get free tickets to the event. Anyone who proposes to speak but isn’t confirmed will still get early bird pricing. If you’ve proposed to speak, there’s no need to rush to buy a ticket. We’ll be in touch with you.

Participants may reserve their tickets from http://droidcon.doattend.com.

The event will have three parallel tracks. The list below will be consolidated down to three by the program committee.

Android Service Patterns

Submitted Oct 4, 2011

Provide deep understanding about the details of creating Services in Android, things to take care of while developing real-world services. Pitfalls to avoid (including a good look at threading implications).


Android has good documentation on details of creating Services. These examples tend to focus on the mechanics of creating a service : e.g. bound & unbound services, how to do IPC,etc. However, the examples do not address tricky scenarios that arise when writing real services. Many of these scenarios strike a service developer as “aaha” moments during debugging. This session will present some of these as reusable “aaha” patterns for developing services. The session will help you map mechanisms of creating services into practical use cases.


Some familiarity with Android programming is required - especially use of Intents. It would help if attendees have gone through at-least simple examples of Service creation.
