About this event

In the Android world, there are more new and exciting libraries and technologies than you can shake a stick at – and certainly too many to keep on top of! This session is an opportunity for folks to share their favourites, and for everyone to learn about some new things to try out.

This session will be run as a short collection of lightning talks (5–10 minutes each), followed by an open-floor discussion for everyone to both ask questions of and share information with one another in a freeform way.

Our current speaker schedule includes:

  • Mikey Stewart
  • Isaac Udy
  • and You?

If you'd like to present for 5–10 minutes, reach out using the "Contact Us" button below and we'll add you to the agenda! This is a great opportunity especially for anyone who might like to try their hand at presenting for the first time – you don't even need a presentation prepared, just bring along a topic!

Pizza & drinks will be provided.
