AnDevCon, or Android Developer Conference if you'd prefer, is a biannual conference where Android devs can get together, talk shop, and learn about things that interest them. Topics such as developer tools, Android app optimization, Fragments, renderscript, and much more can be found on the list of classes you'll find at the fifth AnDevCon, so there should be something for everyone – from the aspiring developer to the seasoned pro. Not only that, but you'll find speakers from some of the biggest companies in mobile, like Facebook, Google, Tumblr, and more. It's a pretty big deal.

This contest is now over.

The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future. Congratulations!

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.

Pricing for the conference ranges anywhere from free to $1,795. Of course, the more you pay, the more you get – and if you register before April 12th, you can score the full ride for $1,395. Here's a closer look at each package:

Giveaway

We've been partnering up with AnDevCon for a couple of years now to offer devs a free in, and this go is no different. As always, this is for the ticket only. You are responsible for travel arrangements, lodging, food, and anything else you may need. If you can't provide those things for yourself, please don't enter.

With that out of the way, let's get to it. We have two tickets for two lucky devs that will get you in to all the workshops, tutorials, classes, and everything else AnDevCon has to offers. The full package.

So, how do you get your name in the hat? Like always, just tell us why you want to go. Convince us why we should send you, and nothing more. We'll let this one run for ten days, so it'll end Friday, March 22 at 11:59 PM PST.

Good luck!

I love the platform and would love to go and enhance my skills on the Android platform and make a great tower defense game for the Android platform. I have a great twist on the Orcs Must Die gameset. Thanks !!

    I'm 16 and I have some apps on Google Play that have been downloaded a lot of times. I want to get into software development and meet new people, also I want to learn more about Android. It's very very important for me because I want to work on software and this will help me a lot. I really need this :)

    I would LOVE to attend! I've done a couple of Android applications and am self taught. The opportunity to connect with other developers would be an amazing opportunity to learn and continue to contribute to the Android ecosystem.

    I live in Boston so it's just a trolley ride away. I'm not that developed in creating apps so I won't throw my name in the hat with sooo many talented people around here. Good luck to the winners & have fun!

  • Gaelan Bolger

    Ive recently released my first app and I am about to release another. Attending AndDevCon would be a great way to learn what practices are best and what others are doing with their development. And I am near Boston too!

  • will

    sounds awesome never been to one would love to attend

  • MJ

    I am a budding Android developer and a long time Boston Red Sox fan so it would be a natural for you to pick me. :-)

    I am an Android fan. My bookshelf is full of little androids that live around my Android IOIO card and my android speaker. I eat with Android, dream of Android. I try to become the best App developer and the AnDevcon is the perfect opportunity. If you want to learn from the real experts, the guys who made Android, that is the place to be. It would like a dream come true.

  • Mike Rueger

    After spending over a year in "portable tool" wasteland I'm yearning for a pure, unadulterated Android fix! Besides, who could resist spending time in Boston in the spring :-)

  • Karl Critz

    Looking to go and learn what's new.

    Seeing as I already live in the city I'd love to get a crack at these tickets to see what's new and up-and-coming.

    I went to AnDevCon in December, it really is a great event. I can't go to this one, but I hope the winners have a great time!

  • Tiffany Sears

    I would love to go to learn and experience the community in a place other than the internet :) I love Android, am fascinated by Android, and find it all a lot of fun. I want to learn more about the work side of it

  • http://www.facebook.com/jdkoren Jonathan Koren

    One of the coolest things about Android is being at the forefront of an emerging digital landscape. I want to go and learn about the newest, up-and-coming ideas and technologies that Android is making possible in other arenas, not just smartphones and tablets.

    As computer science student, and future software engineer, I would love to attend AnDevCon. Android has always been my mobile platform of choice.

  • Sasquatch4ever

    I just published my first app (already at 400 downloads!), and this summer I'm managing the development of an app for the University that I work at, and that I'm studying computer science at. I'd love to go and here how other devices have securely managed data via Android apps in order to have a better understanding while designing the school's app. I'm trying to get tickets to IO for the same reason, but the chances of getting tickets are slim.

  • sturmen

    Soon I'll be starting my new job as an Android Developer here in Boston, so it'd be really helpful for me to go and network.

    My boss recently told me about the conference and suggested that I should attend but I couldn't say yes after seeing the ticket price. I work at a small company just outside the Boston and they can't afford to send its employees to conferences. Maybe I'll be able to attend with the help of Android Police. :-)

    I have been coding since High school when I taught myself Ti-Basic on Texas Instruments Graphing calculators (Ti-85 and TI-82). I have been a developer professional for 15 years now and I am trying to make the switch to coding mobile applications. Attending this conference would be an amazing opportunity to move into the next phase of my career. Thanks for putting together these giveaways!.

  • Kevin Stueber

    Hello! Android is where mobile development is at today. My first app is currently available in the Play Store (Ovvvertime) and I think attending AnDevCon would help to bring my work to the next level. Android is the premier mobile operating system and it deserves apps with beautiful interfaces, intuitive gestures, and rock solid backend code. Plus, I am completely willing to become a Red Sox fan :)

  • Hannu Leinonen

    I really want to see what Dario Laverde has to say about Bluetooth low-energy support, since that's one of the biggest issues causing Android ecosystem fall behind iOS. Also, I did not succeed in getting a Google IO ticket this year.

    The more knowledge the better for me....would love to go and rep that Android Police name big time!

    I’m a self-taught indie Android dev, dedicated to Android for 3 years.
    I will be keen to learn as much as I can.
    I live in the area.
    I’m looking for contract work.
    Bring a little diversity to the conference – I’m female!

    I'm an android enthusiast, i like android developement and android modding. I do admit taht i'm not a big developer like the people in the XDA or the people here, but i have a spark in me which makes me want to learn about android developement. Till now i've been only doing small modding here and there trying to create my own rome from stock ones and modding an applications, but if i am able to attend this conerence i'm sure ill be albe to learn a lot more and feed my thirst for android knowledge. All the best for all of you.

  • Peter Elliott

    I work for a consulting firm on a number of high profile apps, including a major airlines and a major sports app. I would love to expand my knowledge and learn some new tips/tricks to make these apps, along with future apps, even better. I went to I/O last year but AnDevCon has been on my list the last few years as it seems to be more technical, thus a better learning experience.

    Well! all i need now is to attend a freaky "more than interesting!!" event like this!! as i am a huge gamer "lover of video games, want to work in the video games industry, right now i'm looking for member to join my running project"

    So why i spoke about video games while this event is about AnDevCon! well it's because my project is a mix between those both!
