Remember Project Ara? We haven't heard much about it since Motorola revealed its existence back in October, exciting us with the real possibility that one day we will be able to effectively build and customize phones to suit our tastes. As it turns out, the Advanced Technology and Projects team (now owned by Google) is still working full-steam ahead. Today they've announced the first Ara Developers' Conference, which will take place online from April 15 - 16th. Registrants will get to ask questions and participate via a live webstream, and a select few are invited to attend in-person at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.


The conference will focus on the alpha release of the Ara Module Developers' Kit, which will provide the tools developers need to develop an Ara module. It should appear in early April sometime before the conference, so people have time to familiarize themselves with it and prepare decent feedback.

Though the conference is aimed at developers, others are still welcome to view the live stream. Just register here to participate in the event. Online involvement is free, but there is a $100 fee to attend in-person (cut down to $25 for students).
