It's no secret that we love developers here at AP -- they are what fuels the Android ecosystem, after all. To show our appreciation for the elite group that get to call themselves 'devs', we've already successfully sent five on their way to various conferences to help further their skills and networking. At the beginning of the month, we gave away two three tickets to the Android Open Conference in San Francisco, and, more recently, we sent a couple of lucky devs to AnDevCon II, also in SF.

For those on the East Coast, though, a trip across the country may not be in the budget right now. We understand that, so we've teamed up with the Apps World Series to offer you a chance to win one free ticket to the event in New York City on November 1-2.

Like previous giveaways, this is for the ticket only. You are responsible for your own transportation, lodging, and any other associated expenses. The ticket is non-transferable, so please, don't enter if you can't go.

About Apps World

Apps World is a series of conferences across the globe all about app developers. It's a place where devs can learn, network, and collaborate with like-minded folks on new or existing projects. It's not just for the dev, though -- Apps World also welcomes manufacturers, carriers, IT professionals, and appstores. The ticket for this particular conference is for the New York event only, but there's also one happening in Europe at the end of November, so all you EU devs may want to keep an eye on that (hint, hint).

Apps World isn't just about mobile development, either. There are also workshops that focus on TV and web development, as well as marketing. You can expect to get insight from some of the industry's leaders, including speakers from Twitter, Rovio, Dell, AT&T, NBC, Google, and CNN, just to name a few. The conference features over 50 exhibitors and more than 100 speakers, so regardless of how long you've been in the game, you're sure to learn something new.

Tickets

Tickets to the event range anywhere from $730 to $980, depending on how many days you plan on attending. There is also a free option, and while it does get you in the door, you can't access any of the key workshop zones.
