Happy Birthday, Android!
A hackathon celebrating Android
DevFests are large-scale community events throughout the world, following the tradition of Google DevFests and organized by local user groups.
In 2012 there was for the first time a DevFest in Vienna, jointly organized by the Java Student User Group and the Google Developer Group Vienna. A total of 145 participants enjoyed a weekend around development for mobile and web.
Day 1: Mobile & Web, Cloud & SocialThe first day was full of workshops and sessions given by members of the local developer community. In two rooms at the University of Technology in Vienna sessions were held in parallel. Some of the sessions include:
Google+ API family, mobile payment APIs, Go-start web framework, Bitcoin Java API, Google App Scripts, ...
Additionally there was enough time to meet and exchange with fellow developers; and when developers come together amazing things can happen.
Day 1 endet with an awesome afterparty powered by Cenarion.
Day 2: Happy Birthday, Android!
It was on 5 November 2007 that Google launched Android as part of the
Open Handset Alliance.
Now, five years later, we were celebrating its success with a
special birthday hackathon!
In teams we were developing applications for Android and the winners took home valuable prizes: Nexus 7 tablets, Raspberry Pi's, Arduino Kits, books and gadgets. The hackathon took place in the Metalab, a hacker space in Vienna.
