droidconIN 2015

The fifth edition of droidconIN

From its humble beginnings as a mobile OS 6 years ago, Android is now the most popular operating system (of any kind) in the world.

2015 is the year of Android breaking out of mainstream smartphones and tablets and moving into all kinds of unique devices like IoT, Wearables, Automotive, TV, etc.

droidconIN 2015 wants to talk about how we can push these boundaries even further.

What we are looking for

Core Development

Critical, hardcore Android. What an Android developer faces day-to-day.

Things like: New development techniques/methods/concepts, UI/UX, build tools(Gradle, Maven, Ant), useful hacks/libraries, cross platform development


Android in enterprise. How Android development inside large organizations work.

Things like: Testing, Security, Deployment, Custom builds(ROMS)


Android applications for consumers, preferably in an Asia/South Asia context.

Things like: Communication, Information, Games, Android Wear/TV

Beyond handhelds

Android outside the mainstream smartphones and tablets.

Things like: Home Automation, Automotive, Gaming, Embedded systems, Machine-to-Machine


Everything in the Play Store ecosystem.

Things like: Discovery, Monetization, Licensing, Consumer marketing strategies

The bleeding edge of Android development

Things like: New frameworks, APIs, Hardware

App Demos

Demonstrations, discussions and community engagements around Android Apps.

Come to Droidcon India 2015 to discuss how you’ve tackled each of these issues.

Criteria to submit

You must be a practising developer or designer and are expected to present original work that your peers — this event’s audience — recognise as being notable enough to deserve a stage.

If you are excited about someone’s work and believe it deserves wider recognition, we recommend you contact them and ask them to submit a proposal.

Selection Process

Proposals will be filtered and shortlisted by an Editorial Panel. We will notify you if your proposal is shortlisted. We urge you to add links to videos / slide decks when submitting proposals. This will help us understand your past speaking experience. Blurbs or blog posts covering the relevance of a particular problem statement and how it is tackled, will help the Editorial Panel better judge your proposals.

Proposers must submit presentation drafts as part of the selection process to ensure that the talk is in line with the theme of the conference, and to help the editorial panel build a strong line-up for the event.

There is only one speaker per session. Entry is free for selected speakers. HasGeek will provide a bursary to cover part of your travel and accommodation in Bangalore. Bursaries are limited and made available to speakers delivering full sessions (40 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.

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.

Commitment to Open Source

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.

We are no longer accepting proposals. The deadline for submissions was Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

5 point someone should not do in app development

Submitted Sep 8, 2015

I have been performing security testing on android applications since 2010 onwards. If we look at the aggregated results, we see a common pattern. This talk will focus on that pattern and provide and understanding of common android security issues steming from insecure coding practices. the talk will focus on top 5 of these practices.


This talks is a consolidation of my own experiance over a range of 5-6 years of android application analysis from security standpoint. I have been performing android security testing both as part of my daily job as well as part of my part time projects like codevigilant and android tamer. I have also been training people on android security from past many years. Due to the virtual of above two i get to see wierd and worrysome codebases. We have been identifying patterns stemming from insecure coding practices and this talk will focus on giving people and insight about those issues and various ways in which these issues could be mitigated.

(will add more details later)


Basic understanding of Android Application development process.
You should bring a laptop configured with android studio if you wish to parallelly experiment with the stuff being demonstrated on stage.
