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.
Beginning Android Programming
To enable participants to take their first steps in Android programming and get the basics in place for them to move forward.
The workshop will be a trimmed down version of the 2-day workshop that I conduct for beginning Android programming. The participants after a brief introduction to Android and its Developer Toolset will be taken through:
1. Setting up their Dev. Environment
2. Writing a Hello World
3. Learning about Activities, UI Layouts in Android
4. Overview of other APIs in Android
5. Writing a small useful application in Android that allows the app user to view famous quotes, share them with friends,etc.
