What do you think about supporting a community conference organized and beneficial for you?
Open Conference is a little ambiguous at first glance. However, after a little thinking, hmm yeah it should be something that is free, open to public and about sharing knowledge and experience without thinking copyrights. (At least for me:) Moreover, it comes to mind that whether there should be a relation between open source movement. Yeah let’s imagine a community conference organized for increasing attendees knowledge and experience, expanding attendees vision to make them open up to the world and creating opportunity for meeting new geeks for geeks (or building network for business guys;)
We have been partner with Droidcon since ADD 2013 and we are improving our partnership.
Let me give some info about Droidcon. It is a company that tries to develop Android Ecosystem in the world. It organizes Android conferences in various cities such as Berlin, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Tunisia, etc. It seems that there are 15 conferences for 2014 in their agenda.
Maybe you have a question that says why the name of Droidcon in Ankara is Android Developer Days while the other Droidcon names are like Droidcon London, Droidcon Paris
Let me answer it. We first organized ADD in 2012 and there was no partnership with Droidcon. We were on our own. However, when we started the ADD 2013 preparations in last quarter of 2012, we came across the Droidcon guys in a conference. We realized that we both try to do the same thing and while this situation was making us partner, we got agreed on organizing Android Developer Days is not a problem for partnership. It is a wealthiness. Since that day, Android Developer Days has been appeared on Droidcon.com as Droidcon Ankara.
Android Developer Days is reloading not only for 2014 but also for you in order to expand the vision of attendees and to show that volunteer people can do great things.
Android Developer Days is going to take place in METU Cultural and Convention Center, Ankara, Turkey on May 16/17. It is again free and it is open to everyone. GDGs (İstanbul, Eskişehir, Konya, Ankara) in Turkey and METU IEEE takes part in organization committee of ADD. Moreover, we are again open to add new organizators to conference.
International (20) and local (45) speakers shared their knowledge and experiences about current and new mobile technologies. Ecahack Android hackathon, sponsored by Turkcell (prizes were Turkcell tablets and mobile phones), was organized as a subevent. There was also an idea pitching contest, Innovathon, where participants compete to be funded by Turn8. In addition, hundreds of tshirts, books, notebooks and bags were given away.
