Although COVID has put a stopper on many of the major tech events this year, some organizers have pivoted to deliver keynotes and learning sessions online. Joining this new trend, droidcon 2020 is moving forward with a brand new, interactive format that you can attend from the comfort of your home.
Welcome to droidcon 2020 online
This year, droidcon is going completely virtual. That means regardless of where you live, you can partake in any (or all) of the three major droidcon events for 2020. Each conference will feature more than 90 tech sessions, workshops, and 1-on-1 meetings revolving around Android development. Since you won't be leaving your home to attend droidcon, you can even purchase virtual access to all 270 sessions, a multitude of face-to-face video chats, and thousands of devs around the globe.
With a new online format, participants will be able to engage in virtual matchmaking sessions where they can link up and talk to developers who have similar interests and hobbies. Droidcon is also supporting 1-on-1 video meetings with Android industry experts, where attendees can chat about code, participate in impromptu Q&As, and more. Other sessions include virtual roundtables featuring up to 20 people at a time, a virtual hackathon where participants can complete challenges and vote on the best projects, and networking opportunities. In addition to mingling with developers, droidcon has invited a number of companies to showcase their insights and achievements in the Android space, including Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and more.
