Droidcon 2014 run up Hacknight
We want to build on the excitement, learning and peer-to-peer environment by helping you to propose your ideas early on, and thinking through them before you come to the hacknight.
At the hacknight, we not only want to develop apps and work on hacks that excite us but also want to discuss the thought process that lies behind the understanding of a problem and the conceptualization of a solution. Further, we want to push participants to think about how to take their apps to the market and popularize them.
Mentors at the hacknight will help participants to fine tune their ideas. They will also provide an overview of the Android and smart phone ecosystem in today's times, and emerging opportunities for technology and marketization.
Participants can come up with projects or a topic of their choice, on an Android related theme. You could work on your existing project plan or propose fresh ideas and build a team to work around it. Participants can also come in with an open mind to learn and get involved with the proposed projects.
At the end of the Hacknight, we will showcase the Project ideas worked on and the progress made on it, plus a discussion on the problems faced during the course of design and development.
Selected projects will make it to the main stage for App Demo at Droidcon 2014.
