Droidcon is India’s largest Android developer conference, and is part of the world wide series of conferences that happens in London, Paris, Berlin, Netherlands, Tunis, Ankara and Brussels. If you are doing anything with Android, you’d want to be here in Bangalore on Nov 28-30th 2013.
A WIP schedule will be up on the Droidcon India website and will be updated periodically.
Voting is open to attendees who have purchased event tickets. If there is a proposal you find notable, please vote for it and leave a comment to initiate discussions. Your vote will be reflected immediately, but will be counted towards selections only if you hold a ticket. Proposals will also be evaluated by a program committee, consisting of:
- Aravind Krishnaswamy of Levitum is the Program Chair
- Amrit Sanjeev of Intuit and Blrdroid will run the App Demos track.
- Kumar Rangarajan of LittleEyeLabs will run the Systems track.
- Rahul Gonsalves of UnCommon will run the UX track.
- Aravind Krishnaswamy of Levitum will run the Business track.
- Ravi Korukonda of PurpleTalk will run the Gaming track.
- Soham Mondal of Triveous and Blrdroid will run the Workshops.
Proposers must submit presentation drafts as part of the selection process to ensure that the talk is in line with the original proposal, and to help the program committee build a strong line-up for the event.
Final date for submission of proposals Oct 18th, 2013.
First set of pre-confirmations Oct 18th, 2013.
Submission of slide drafts Oct 25th, 2013.
Second set of pre-confirmations Oct 26th, 2013.

Final schedule Nov 8th, 2013
All speakers are requested to be available for officehours during the conference. This will be a scheduled 30 minute block of time during which attendees can meet you at a designated space for open Q&A offstage.
There is only one speaker per session. Attendance is free for selected speakers. HasGeek will cover your travel to and accommodation in Bangalore from anywhere in the world for speakers delivering full sessions (30 minutes or longer). As our budget is limited, we will prefer speakers from locations closer home, but will do our best to cover for anyone exceptional. If you are able to raise support for your trip, we will count that as speaker travel sponsorship.
HasGeek believes in open source as the binding force of our community. If you are describing a codebase for developers to work with, we’d like it to be available under a permissive open source license. If your software is commercially licensed or available under a combination of commercial and restrictive open source licenses (such as the various forms of the GPL), please consider picking up a sponsorship. We recognize that there are valid reasons for commercial licensing, but ask that you support us in return for giving you an audience. Your session will be marked on the schedule as a sponsored session.
If your proposal is accepted for a session > 30 minutes long, we will cover your event ticket.
If your proposal is not accepted, you can buy a ticket at the same rate as was available on the day you proposed. We’ll send you a code.
Workshop on OpenCV based app development on Android Devices
This workshop would focus on introducing basic image processing with the openCV image processing framework in Android. Participants can leatn how to set up a complete environment for OpenCV development in Eclipse and practically try out some image processing examples during the practical workshop on their android device. Participants can learn how to Integrate openCV for image processing real time video streams from the camera of any android device for their custom applications.
OpenCV is an open source image processing framework that can be used for a number of image processing applications. Its popularity and community support have made it being ported to a number of platforms and it also a large academic community support that performs a lot of image processing research using OpenCV. This workshop aims to be a primer into setting up and compiling openCV android applications in Eclipse for android development, A basic introduction to image processing terminology and the working of the openCV libraries, a look at some image processing application such as color detection, filter operations like edge detection, and how to perform real time operations on a live video stream from the devices camera for things like face detection etc. Also a small introduction will be given to how to overlay objects ono the openCV surface to implement Augmented reality application easily.
##1. Wisdom wise:
- Core Object Oriented programming preferably in Java.
- Exposure to Eclipse IDE would be useful.
- It is recommended that participants go through Eclipse tutorial and practice OOP in Java including the collection library and multi-threaded programming.
##2. Hardware wise:
- You have to bring your own laptop (don’t forget the charger)
- Please bring your own Android device to test out your apps on them in real time
- Make sure your machine configuration is reasonable enough to withstand the dev environment. (at least 4GB RAM, with enough disk space for all dev software)
##3. Software wise:
- Instructor would be using Mac environment and any platform specific issues will not be resolved during the workshop.
- All software (JDK) needs to be installed in a folder that doesn’t containing any blank spaces in its absolute path.
- Operating System: Windows XP (32bit), Windows 7 (32 /64 bit), Windows 8 (64 bit), Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later (x86 only) or Linux (tested on Ubuntu Linux, Lucid Lynx)
- GNU C Library (glibc) 2.7 or later is required.
- On Ubuntu Linux, version 8.04 or later is required.
- 64-bit distributions must be capable of running 32-bit applications.
- Eclipse IDE (or Participants can directly download platform specific ADT Bundle from http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html)
- Eclipse 3.6.2 (Helios) or greater
- Note: Eclipse 3.5 (Galileo) is no longer supported with the latest version of ADT.
- Eclipse JDT plugin (included in most Eclipse IDE packages)
- JDK 6 (JRE alone is not sufficient) with latest update needs to be installed
- Android Development Tools plugin (recommended)
- Not compatible with GNU Compiler for Java (gcj)
Wingston can be found hacking on random stuff like python / android dev / some arduino projects and more. Image processing is one of the hobbies he really enjoys.
