About droidcon

Android is the most popular mobile platform worldwide. The droidcon conference has influenced the Android ecosystem from the very early stages, that is since 2009. The 19th and 20th of April 2018 the community is invited to Turin for the fourth time.

Android is no longer just a smartphone and tablet technology
. The system and the platform increasingly pervade other product groups, particularly in the embedded space. At the same time, the human-machine interfaces change.

Just think of Android Auto project or the gamification trend, applying typical game elements to fields beyond gaming. New hardware is created, payment methods are evolving. All this allows for new interaction and business models, to the point of the development of individual hardware and ROMs.

In effect, the Android ecosystem evolves rapidly and is gaining importance, both in the economic and private fields. droidcon is slated to map all this and hereby calls on all players in the Android ecosystem for the fourth time to present their projects, concepts and ideas in Turin.
