About this event

Welcome to the first Android Worldwide event of 2021! We have joined an international collective of developer communities who like to put on quarterly events for Android Devs and related engineering specialties. Our primary goal is to help break-down geographical barriers between developers and communities, while doing our best to help each community's organizers feel supported.

Android Worldwide is a series of four events in a single day, spread out to run at convenient times for people residing in many different timezones. All events are free, and you are welcome to attend whichever one you like—no restrictions.

Each event is hosted by organizers from the dozens of engineering communities who have partnered with us. Speakers were carefully selected from submissions to our call for papers, which was difficult given how many fantastic options we saw. Paired with fantastic content, we want to emphasize the importance of having a tighter social fabric. For that, we've selected a special video conferencing software made by, and set aside plenty of time for friendly conversation between you and your fellow community members from around the globe.

The events are scheduled to start as follows:

Event #1 @ 7PM IST (2:30PM CET / 8:30AM EST / 5:30AM PST)

Event #2 @ 6:30PM CET (11PM IST / 12:30PM EST / 9:30AM PST)

Event #3 @ 6PM EST (4:30AM IST/ 12AM CET / 3PM PST)

Event #4 @ 6PM PST (7:30AM IST/ 3AM CET / 9PM EST)

The event that's most convenient for our community has the following schedule:
