[Berlin]droidcon Berlin, independent Android developer conferences, will take place at IFA for the first time from 3 to 5 September 2017 CityCube Berlin, Hall A, Room A1-A3. Around 1,000 software developers and experts are expected to attend the conference, who in particular will discuss technical aspects and innovations of the operating system and its applications.
According to data released by market researchers Gartner, in late 2016 the Android operating system developed by Google had more than 80 per cent of the smartphone market. This makes it the most successful mobile platform for smartphones worldwide, and it has long since found its way onto other devices as well. The operating system has become a key element of smart home solutions, including smart washing machines and refrigerators as well as internet television sets, and is built into many exhibitors’ products at IFA. As a result, it plays a pivotal role in the increasingly important connected home.
“With droidcon Berlin we are thrilled to have another partner conference on board. As an established symposium for head developers boasting high-quality, carefully chosen content, it perfectly augments the IFA program. It also strengthens our portfolio in the software segment”, said Dirk Koslowski, Senior Executive Manager IFA.
“droidcon Berlin opens up new possibilities for both sides. IFA also provides an opportunity for exhibitors to let their Android developers gain extra knowledge and present their products to other Android development teams”, is how Boris Jebsen, who established droidcon, explains its benefits. “At the same time these projects can provide other Android developers with fascinating insights.”
