After a three year hiatus, Google has announced that they will be hosting an Android Dev Summit November 7th and 8th in the Mountain View, California based Computer History Museum. The event, as the name suggests, is aimed for Android developers and will provide two days of breakout sessions, keynotes and time to chat with other developers and Googlers.
Registration details and session details have not been announced and readers are encouraged to follow the Android Dev Twitter account for more details (or the hashtag #AndroidDevSummit
Given the venue, it is likely that the Android Dev Summit will be a small affair with very limited space. If you are thinking of wanting to go, be ready when registration does open up. It will likely either go very fast or, like Google I/O, you could end up in a lottery for seats.
The last Dev Summit was held in 2015 and featured sessions on the then new Android Marshmallow doze mode as well as the then Android Wear (now Wear OS by Google) watch face creation. You can actually still see all of the sessions from that event here if you want to check them out and get a feel for the level of discussions and types of discussions at the event.
This year’s summit could be exceptional given that it happens after the release of Android P (Pistachio?) which should happen in the August time frame.
