Droidcon Berlin 2017 – IFA Debut for Android Developer Conference

Since the first droidcon conference in Berlin in 2009, the “movement” has spread over 20 countries across 4 continents, and this year, for the first time, the organisers are teaming with Messe Berlin for their flagship event of the year.

Droidcon is a leading independent platform for Android developers. droidcon conferences give software developers an opportunity to exchange knowledge on this mobile operating system at the highest technological level. Accordingly, 90% of the conference attendees are software developers. From 3 to 5 September, around 1,000 software developers and experts are expected to attend the conference to discuss technical aspects and innovations of the operating system and its applications.

Sessions will include “How to Build for Voice: Foundations, and Why Mobile Developers are Already One Step Ahead” – a hands-on workshop @droidcon (04.09.2017, 2pm – 4pm), to learn the foundational pillars of voice design, how voice differs from mobile, and how to build a simple voice-enabled experience from the ground up leveraging the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK).

Speakers this year in Berlin are set to include:

  • Svetlana Isakova: Developer Advocate – JetBrains
  • Wojtek Kalicinski: Developer Advocate – Google
  • Ernir Erlingsson: Software developer — Briar Project
  • Danny Preussler: Lead Engineer Android — Viacom
  • Modupe Akinnawonu: Product Manager — The New York Times
  • Garima Jain: Android Developer – Fueled

The Android operating system has become a key element of smart home solutions, including smart washing machines and refrigerators as well as internet television sets, and is built into many exhibitors’ products at IFA. As a result, it plays a pivotal role in the increasingly important connected home.
