Android DevCamp by Silicon Valley Android Developers

android, Events, Silicon Valley Android Meetup

I am very glad to announce that, we are going to host a 2.5 days DevCamp at March 4th, with support from Google and PayPal, and several sponsors (TBC)

I am looking for volunteers, sponsors. drop me a note with proper subject if you are interested.

Android DevCamp detail (Formal draft):

Android Dev Camp is a weekend-long event where participants will have an opportunity to design, develop, and demo a complete application over the course of three days. The event kicks off at the Hacker DoJo on Friday, March 4, where ideas and teams will come together. Teams will then have the rest of the weekend to build their applications before presenting their work to the public on Sunday evening.
Not Your Typical, Run-of-the-Mill Hackathon

Instead of back-to-back presentations followed by several variations of “Hello World,” DevCamp is all about coding and completing a full-featured web application using Android 3.0 technologies. While there will be opportunities to try new APIs and learn new features, teams will be expected to produce a real, working application in 2.5 days in return for free meals and a chance for fame and fortune should one create the next killer app… and there may even be a few prizes to boot.

If you feel up to the challenge, please choose a single ticket of the type most appropriate for yourself and fill out the registration form. Attendance is capped, so register soon — all registrations are on a first-come-first-serve basis.

    Chrome will support Android Apps in future

    General, Silicon Valley Android Meetup

    During the Fireside talk with Google Android team at Google IO 2010, I asked the question that, how Android team plan to solve compatibility issue with Chrome OS, the android director (at the left)  answer that,  it is planed to have Android App run at Chrome OS natively in the future; however,  it will not happen any time soon.

    Mobile Forum: App Stores and Discovery – Telecom council

    android, Silicon Valley Android Meetup
    I am glad to speak at App Store and Discovery event hosted by Telecom Council Silicon Valley. Here is the detail.
    App Stores were the big story for 2009, and growth and interest in that sector is sure to continue through 2010. But there are definite fractures in the generic app store’s foundations. The developers of mobile content are increasingly voicing growing dissatisfaction over likely obscurity, hyper-competition, shrinking margins, and that same bug-bear once again – fragmentation.


    Research from one Telecom Council member reveals no fewer than 44 app stores emerged since 20083Q, with at least 7 more coming in 2010Q1. This leaves us with some questions to address:

    • What are the considerations for the app store operators (the carriers, handset vendors, OS makers, portals, etc.) as they try to carve themselves out a piece of this role?
    • Is it about revenue, or is it ownership of the relationship?
    • Can the industry possibly support this many storefronts?
    • What role does application discovery play?
    • Does discovery take place within a store, per the Amazon sales models, or across stores, per the Google search models?
    • Are there social networking solutions that can help sort through the 100,000+ apps out there?

    For developers, a brief trend towards homogeneity has been halted, and tough decisions once again loom about the best path to market, getting noticed, and which app stores are most promising. What factors should developers be demanding of their channels? Are there differences between enterprise and consumer, between large and small ISVs? So many questions. At this meeting, you can learn best practices for answering them, communicate with your potential channel partners, spot trends, and make the connections that will get you to your next milestones.

    This meeting is free for Telecom Council members, and $200 for non-members.
