It's that time of year again - time for the annual Apps World in Europe (there's also an American event, but that's not until February 2013). And, just like last year, we've a couple of tickets to give away. Why? Because we're awesome and love to give away free stuff. That's why.

This giveaway is for the event 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.

Of course, we couldn't give this stuff away if it wasn't provided by Apps World. So really, the love goes to them.

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 devs, though - Apps World also welcomes manufacturers, carriers, IT professionals, and app store maintainers. The ticket for this particular conference is for the event in Earl's Court, London only.

Apps World isn't just about mobile development, either. There are also workshops that focus on TV and cloud app development, as well as marketing, and many other subjects. You can expect to get insight from some of the industry's leaders, including speakers from Samsung, the BBC, Sony, Skype, Google, and Paypal, just to name a few.


Tickets range from £375 to £775 depending on package and when you buy. There's also a free option that will get you in the door and into the Developer Zone and Droid World.

Package info:

  • Lawliet

    I'm a budding developer who happens to live in vicinity of Earls' Court! Perfect opportunity to get more insights into the world of apps development.

  • SleepingSeasons

    Pick me, because I just finished my degree, have nothing better to do, love discovering new apps and learn more about the ecosystem and development. I live just outside of London too, so that's convenient.

  • Adam Smith

    I should be picked because i'm moving to London on the 17th of September and I'm going to be spending a lot of time on my new Technology blog. This would give me a huge boost and give me the chance to meet lots of new people!

  • http://twitter.com/sprytezero Spryte

    I would like to win because this is finally a reason to travel to London (sth. I've wanted to do for years already) before I start at university. Furthermore, as I am beginning to develop my own apps, this is the perfect opportunity to get in touch with other devs and exchange knowledge.

  • http://profiles.google.com/horomanski Bryce Horomanski

    You should pick me because this would be the absolute perfect short vacation for my wife and me. I love everything Android and I'm tinkering around with making my own app and if my wife could choose just one place she has never been to go it would be London.

  • Or

    I am a developer from Israel, that reads your blog every day.
    From all the dates that the event could have been, it's just when I am heading for a vacation in London (1.10 - 5.10). I always wanted to enter the mobile develop world, and I think this is a great opportunity for me.

  • http://twitter.com/psych2L Joseph Lee

    You should pick me so that I can find enthusiastic devs for app ideas for application in science such as a truly versatile molecular modeling app that as the modeling chops as well as the energy calculations/minimizations to make android tablets the source for researchers!

  • alexvanderlinden

    Because I want to investigate if it is wise to port my Android apps to the Google TV platform. And how to do this the best way. That's why.

  • Mārtiņš Belte

    Simply because, if I plan on making a new country where I'll be the leader, I'll need experience in this field. Imagine how country cpuld benefit if it were using more apps. Also, I am an active EU citizen, i have earned my right to win.

  • Lesm

    As a person living in London we will be able to attend all day both days and will give you a review.

  • PINJ

    I Didnt Make It To The GamesConvention In Germany This Year So I Need Smtn To Make Up For That. Incidentally I Am In Ireland So As A Digital Media Engineer I Would Be A Perfect Even For Me To Go To.

  • fewesttwo

    To learn about the development of cross platform games from other companies and see how this matches my current strategy. To see why no company has nailed the same game, different screen approach and understand the industries vision for the future of mobile, social and cross platform

  • Lee Apps

    I should win because my last name is actually Apps and this is my world apparently.

  • Dark X Dragon

    I only live a short distance away and I started a new job recently where it would be a great way to impress them and push me to work on the mobile apps. It also allows me to take the current app developer and hep make the app much better!

  • Sakuja

    I should win, cause I like cheese!

  • Bayilo

    Because I want to!

  • Scott Standish-Parkin

    Why should i go? Well for one I follow your site, comment and join you guys for the hang outs on Thursdays. Also, I need a well deserved two day break from everything here in NYC to travel across the pond and engage with other like minded individuals. Finally, I would enjoy a frosty beverage or rather nice brandy with you the staff at AP, but I digress. I would be ever so thankful to receive such an opportunity. So yea i hope that explains things in a nutshell why I should get the chance to enjoy such a marvelous festivity...now back to work for me ^_^

  • Russell Waterson

    I NEED THIS!!!

  • http://twitter.com/KomeilKarimi Komeil Karimi

    well, I'm half way there and live in London so I CAN GO. But why I want to go? This would be a great experience to fast-forward my new venture to work in this field. This would be a great chance to see things first hand and meet some people who know the drill and can point me in the right direction.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=667020551 Jose Torres

    I want to go because I think British babes are rad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • kodinos

    I am a Londoner and I want to absorb as much knowledge as I can with regard to Android apps development as it will help me in my current job.

  • http://www.facebook.com/soliman.abdallah Soliman Abdallah

    cause i'm Egyptian and Egypt need to get some android love :)

  • renatohsc

    Cause this would be a great opportunity to learn more and see things first hand...

  • owen oliver

    Becuase they never have an amazing event in the UK and it looks amazing

  • http://twitter.com/andreimp Andrei Muresan

    Because I am from Romania and I just happen to be in London in that period and I have never been to an event like this before. Thanks.

  • Jamie Johnstone

    My friend and I are computer science students at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh. We have just started a small Apps company on the side, and this opportunity would be a fantastic boost to our fledgeling enterprise, as well as a crucial contribution to our future careers in Apps development. I promise that it would be an investment which would yield a real return. Thanks.

  • alex

    :( I am sad that I am in school or I would totally try to get these and go.

  • jake

    I was going to come up with something quirky or funny, but I thought the chances are its better for someone who's more willing to go to the event :)

  • Darren

    I have an interest in writing apps and just 'app'en to be in London for those 2 days.

  • solecontro

    Why? Because I'm a wannabe mobile startupper. An I'm good. That's why.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1653571802 Debadatta Bose

    Why? Because I have such an awesome idea! I was invited at the Microsoft AppFest in Bangalore to be held this Friday-Saturday to finish and polish my app! I'll do it for Android too :D

  • thedesolatesoul

    I have the Expo Pass so I am going anyway. This is probably the perfect time since I need to market my app and create connections. Also, I already live in London. This will give me insight into how I can turn my part-time dev work into a venture.

  • Andy Pannell

    I wish to go to apps world europe as this is the first time I have seen such an event close to where I live. I have adopted Android since November 2008 with the G1 and had every nexus phone since then. I have recently learned about making my own apps and think this would greatly benefit me and my studies

  • Steve Williamson

    I have built one app for the android market. and would like to build more, just need to learn and bit and get some real inspiration. This would be perfect!!!

  • Lewis Hunter

    I'd like to win it because I could never afford to go otherwise

  • http://twitter.com/stsdema28 Stavros Demarchos

    i study computer eng @National Technical University of Athens! The truth is that we don't have many opportunities to join the real world of development through the university.... I am interesting on Mobile technology and by the end of the month (after the end of exams) i will start reading how to build my own application! I tried to find the right way to begin but i am so confused! There are so many guides, many engines for games (i tried UNITY 3D), and many multi-platform developer tools...
    So, this ticket will be a great opportunity for me to get start in the right way!

  • Gabriele Traviglia

    I want to go because I never find a good reason / enough time to go to London and since I study Medicine in English here in Italy and I never happen to speak with a native speaker I need to hear someone truly speak english so badly before I forget how to think in english !

  • Eugene

    I want to go because I am in London and I think Stavros should go! Pick Stacros Demarchos! Demarchos for President!

  • Leo Kanellopoulos

    I would love to go because i am a new android developer who cant efford in any case to get in an event like this. :D i really hope i will win!
