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

Submitted Sep 17, 2015

Design and build apps the right way

Talk is to discuss best practices and tips/tricks for engineering android apps that look great, easily manageable and scalable, perform well on as many devices as possible, from phones to tablets and more.

Outline

There are thousand of apps being developed and published by thousands of android developers each day but result is frustrating when you do code review, architecture review and check performance. Couple of apps you would find are either developed haphazardly just to achieve the deadline or didn’t followed standard practices or such other reasons.

There are best practices which can help android developers to engineer android applications the right way. I will cover some of the best practices like:
1. Gradle best practices
2. Architecture best practices for engineering scalable android apps
3. Practices for improving performance
4. Practices for hunting down memory leaks
5. Practices for designing android apps
6. Practices for testing android apps. Why, what and how to test android apps!
