Droidcon 2015

CEO @ Novoda developing the world's most desirable mobile products. Kevin has developed for print, web, desktops and mobile and can confirm that they all take a long time to do right.

#DroidconUK15 was a grand boiling pot for the liveliest conversations in Android design & development. We look forward to the annual gathering of the best creators from across the globe discussing and disagreeing in the aim of making better mobile products.

We're always looking to innovate in how we appear at conferences and this time we brought our Continuous Integration! We had a CI wall with a host of different devices which were building demos submitted to branches on a repository on our public github account. We offered a prize to whoever committed the best visualisation to be committed, compiled and plated live live on our booth CI devices during Droidcon. Well done to all those that submitted you can see them all here: github pull requests. Here are some of our key picks:

Hackathon

A hackathon continued in Skillsmatter over the weekend. We had some great submissions including multi device Halloween pranks, in-car navigation games, photo rendering libraries, customer rewards schemes and games. But the one which really captured our hearts was the NFC Piano by Avelyn Goh. Avelyn wowed us with not only her innovative use of Moo's NFC Cards but also her tinkering to get the feedback just right for use. Novoda said well done by awarding her with a Nexus 5x!
