Diary Date – DroidCon London 28-29 Oct

Another date for you diary. This time it’s DroidCon a two-day London based Barcamp and conference for Android lovers in sunny Islington in late October.

The first day will be a barcamp style day (think geeks, pizza, fizzy pop, tech, tech, tech) organised by attendees where everyone is encouraged to share in the things which they are most interested. After some morning introductions everyone is invited to add their talk or conversation point to a list of topics assembled on the day. The most popular items are then allotted time in rooms according to their popularity with the attendees.
