Speakers & Sessions
Mobiletuts+ column writers Shane Conder and Lauren Darcey are the co-chairs of the conference and have assembled an outstanding collection of speakers to present on the latest industry trends.
When asked about the conference, Shane had this to say:
As a developer-centric conference, Ice Cream Sandwich will likely take center stage, but we have a number of exciting speakers to cover other Android topics as well, many of which we haven't ever been featured at any other conference. It's shaping up to be a unique learning experience for everyone.
Lauren Darcey added:
We're very excited to be participating in VTM's first Android conference in February. . .The event is ideally timed to give everyone a chance to review all that Android's newest version, the highly anticipated Ice Cream Sandwich release, has to offer and then share our findings with each other in a professional context.
In addition to our own Shane Conder & Lauren Darcey, other speakers who will be attending the conference include:
- Dan Galpin: Developer Advocate for the Google Android Team focused on Games and OpenGL.
- Romain Guy: Software Engineer on the Android Framework Team at Google.
- Chet Haase: Works at Google on the Android project.
- David Wolber: Professor of Computer Science at the University of San Francisco.
