The stated intention of the organisers of droidcon Dubai is to gather the UAEa��s tech community together a�� under one roof a�� to learn about the latest Android advances, hear about innovative new technologies from expert speakers and to network with people from across the tech and Android industry. The event is also expected to further drive the development of the UAEa��s start-up landscape by giving talented developers access to industry leaders, thereby encouraging new ideas, and nurturing innovation.

Having grown into one of the worlda��s biggest tech events, with thousands of attendees every year across five continents, droidcon Dubai is expected to follow in the success it has achieved at similar conferences held in locations around the world.

The conference agenda for droidcon Dubai 2016 includes a host of expert speakers who will present on a wide range of topics relating to the latest developments in the Android community. These include speakers from Google, Skyscanner, Groupon, HRS and Shazam.

Speaking ahead of next montha��s event, droidcon founder and director of strategic orientation for the brand, Boris Jebsen said:

a�?We are tremendously excited to be bringing the GCC’s biggest, community-driven, Android developer conference series back to the United Arab Emirates for the second time. Having already secured some of the worlda��s top names in Android development as guest speakers, we are confident that developers and companies from the UAE and across the Gulf region will see this as the must-go-to event of the year a�� for their industry and individual networking opportunities.a�?

According to Jensen, the concept of droidcon was formed in 2009 as an idea for supporting the Android platform and to draw attention to different parts of the community driven eco-system, including core development, embedded solutions, augmented reality, business solutions and games.
