Google ATAP to Hold Project Ara Developer Conference in April, Register Now!
Ever since the former Googorola’s ambitious Project Ara was first announced back in late October, many have been impatiently waiting for modular smartphones to make their way into consumer hands. Since then, we’ve talked a bit about some of the project’s potential pitfalls, as well as the first steps towards making it a reality. We even created a forum for Ara (and MDK Hacking and Development in general) in order to help encourage would-be developers to get started with module development.
When Googorola became Motonovo, many were worried about the future of Project Ara and the ATAP team as a whole. Luckily, we soon learned that ATAP would trade hands into Google’s possession. And now, the ATAP team has announced that they will be holding a Project Ara Developers’ Conference on April 15 and 16.
Those looking to start developing modules for Project Ara should register for the Developers’ Conference. The event will be streamed live via an Internet webcast, but a few lucky registrants will be invited to attend in person. Head to the source links below to learn more, and don’t forget to visit our Project Ara forum to get in on the MDK Hacking discussion!

While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor. Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S". So this begs the question, is the M9 worth the upgrade if you already own the M8? Current HTC One M8 users chime in and let us know your thoughts.
