Last week, we hooked two three Android developers up with free tickets to the Android Open Conference on October 9-11, and now we have two tickets for the upcoming AnDevCon (Android Developer Conference), happening November 6-9 in San Francisco to give away. These three-day passes are normally $1295 each and will get you the whole kit-and-caboodle, with the exception of the pre-conference workshops.

Just like the previous giveaway, this is for tickets only. You are responsible to your own travel expenses, lodging, food, and any other associated fees.

Before we get into how you can win, let's get to know what AnDevCon is all about, shall we?


About AnDevCon

125x125The inaugural Android Developer Conference was held back in March of this year and focused entirely on development topics for the Android platform. This conference was organized with the dev in mind from the ground up, and that's basically the extent of the population you'll find there, too; no marketing people, IT professionals, or wireless carriers -- just developers.

This conference was built by developers and for developers, so you can expect to get the most up-to-date, solid information the industry has to offer. AnDevCon offers more than 70 classes to choose from, all given by some of the leading devs in the business.


Tickets range anywhere from $695 to $1995, depending on whether you want to attend workshops, the conference, or both.

Since we're one of AnDevCon's media partners, we managed to score a deal that will net each of you $100 off the ticket price by using coupon code MEDIASPONSOR, so make sure to take advantage of that when registering.


This contest is now over. We have selected the winners:
  • Gyuri
  • Sam Tros

Congratulations, guys - all of you will be contacted for your information in the near future.

Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements. You can follow AP on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and RSS.

Ah, yes -- the part that everyone has been waiting for (you didn't skip the rest did you?): the giveaway. As we've already stated, we have two tickets ($1295 each) to the event (excludes per-conference workshops) for two lucky devs.

Again, this does not cover the cost of travel, lodging, or any other expense -- it is for tickets only. Tickets are non-transferable, so please don't enter if you can't or don't plan on attending.

  • Tuan Vu

    really would lik to attend, loving android platform and best of all, kick ass comparing to ios.

  • http://www.joedonofry.com Joseph Donofry

    As a developer and one who has recently started developing for Android, I would love the opportunity to build knowledge of the Android development process. It would certainly help me in my current project for Android and would enable me to use the knowledge for other topic. Of course, any knowledge will help me as a developer in the long run.

  • Kevin

    Pick me because i'm awesome and local.

  • brandon french

    me because I'm too lazy to learn on my own.

  • http://gthing.net sam

    You should pick me because when I finally develop my awesome app I will give androidpolice and exclusive advance copy.

  • http://android-gz.com Phil

    I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE to attend AnDevCon! I will be attending classes soon specific to Android development, and to have the opportunity to meet other devs, and see their work would be a huge help in my progression! I recently lost my job, and with 4 kids, a reboot will be difficult, but I am confident I will be HUGE in the dev community once I get my start!

  • Hary Ayala

    you should choose me mostly because i'm so likable everyone will love to have me there ;)

    that or cuz i'm a developer, whichever you prefer ^_^

  • Azazel11

    I love the West Coast (New Yorker here) and I'm an aspiring Android developer! Pick me nao.

  • http://gyurigrell.com Gyuri

    East coast developer here (RI) always looking to expand my knowledge and get even better at what I do every day. I've got one personal app in the market (Grandma Jong) and have done several for clients, including the rewrite of CardStar, and a couple more in the pipeline. Heading out to AndDevCon II would be an awesome way to connect with other developers from around the world and help the Android platform with excellent new and beautiful apps.

    I am a SW engineer living near SF with main experience in C/C++ and little bit of Java but no mobile app experience. I am also a happy father of a toddler showing great interest for Android apps, an Android fan and a dedicated Android Police reader! Six months ago, after finding my little one likes catching animals and cars flying on the screen, I decided to try to create some app/game for young children myself. So on my spare time I have been learning Android development, reading books, watching online video, it was hard, but I have done some basic work and it is so much fun! I have a draft of some working game, but the field is changing quickly, new APIs, etc... and I barely had time to catch up all this time; well... it was until three weeks ago when I lost my job! I love Android development and I am trying to land a new job in that field. Going to the conference would give me an opportunity to network and to catch up; it will help to finish (in particular the UI) and publish my app as well as become a good candidate for some company in the mobile market.
    For a passionate Android developer like myself going to the conference would be like winning the lottery. I am looking at sharing my session notes with the Android Police community and wishing everybody best luck!

      Thank you for making me a winner, I am so excited to get that opportunity. I will get you some updates live from the conf.

  • Frantisek Ciompa

    It would be nice meet new android people.

  • Cody Callaway

    I am just learning as I am finally taking my upper programming college courses, but have spent a lot of time learning to develop for the Android platform. Plus god knows as a full-time worker and full-time student I dont have the cash to go on my own dime.

  • Tim

    Please choose me, because I enter every contest, and have yet to win anything :(

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      Yeah, saying that in a contest where winners are not picked at random is a good way to guarantee that you won't be one of the winners.

  • Jeff J

    I've never been to the west coast (Boston here), and I'm an aspiring developer...please send me away AndroidPolice! :)

    Hey there, I'd like to go to this conference to quickly get up to speed on developing android apps. Conferences like these are very good at showing the many things capable of android, which will be of great value to get the full breadth of everything android.

  • Ed Ace

    I would love an opportunity to attend one of these Android Conferences. I just started developing for Android, and having so much fun learning the API. God knows I need to learn more, so what better way than to go to the source ;)

  • http://www.keyally.com Charles Barouch

    I've been a business and game developer for over thirty years. I've been doing social content/events on networks since before most people knew there were networks. I'm doing some Android development now and also work on iOS because I know that one size does not fit all. I'd like to go because, at fifty, I'm still not done learning and expanding my reach.

  • Anjie Cai


  • Mike

    Because this will help me polish my apps currently in development, which will lead to better apps for the community!

  • Sundeep

    "AnDevCon will leave with lot of Confidence as Android Developer". Am a newbie to android and ofcourse to android application development.Android is something which has reached the pinnacle within a shorter span.To my knowledge no other technology or platform has become so popular within this short duration.I have developed few apps and I would like to carry on with it in developing some really useful apps.This conference will act as a platform in learning "android platform".

  • Nirmal Rajan

    AnDevCon is hosting a conference which will enable the budding developers to gain good knowledge on Andriod Platform. I have posted some Application on Market under my company name. I would like to be part of this conference to gain good exposure and Enrich my knowledge on Android Development.

  • aj34

    After reading all the posts, I think Gyuri Grell should be picked as one of the winners. I don't know him at all, but looking at his android app in the market and reading his blog and twitter posts, he looks like a serious developer who would benefit greatly from a conference like this one. Good luck to all the people who posted.

    • http://gyurigrell.com Gyuri

      Thank You for the sentiment! I look forward to going and sharing what I learned.

      For those in the New England area, particularly RI, I'm planning on starting up a mobile development/business meetup soon. It'd be great to have something of AnDevCon caliber here in the northeast as well.
