This is how Android Summit started for me! A delightful dinner for the speakers where I had the chance to make some new friends; including the friendly conference committee lead by folks at Capital One.
The highlight of any conference is the keynote, and I was excited to learn all about becoming an Android "Expert" from Chiu-Ki Chan! She explained how we can use blog posts, public speaking, videos, and books to share our expertise and thus become "experts".
The conference consisted of two tracks: Development and Design. I decided to put on my design hat and attend a few sessions. I really enjoyed the talks on prototyping with Pixate and thinking like an Animator.
Learning about App Prototyping using @Pixate with @richiehollins. Pretty slick! #androidsummit2015 pic.twitter.com/lROZoT557b— Annyce Davis (@brwngrldev) September 30, 2015
After that I had to scurry off and present my talk on developing maintainable apps. I really loved the positive energy from the crowd and the head nods as I explained the annoyances of messy code:-(
Considering this is the first time the conference was held, I'd say it was a smash hit. I can't wait to see what they have in store for us next year!
