March of the Droids 2014 Just Two Weeks Away; It’s Not Too Late to Register
If you want to attend an Android developers’ conference, we have you covered. But if you’re after a consumer-geared Android event, there are quite a few options all across the globe. Here in the US, we have the Big Android Barbeque. In India, there’s DroidSync. And in the UK, there’s March of the Droids.
We first talked about March of the Droids’ predecessor Glasdroid two years ago. For those who have a short attention span, Glasdroid was a 2012 event by the fine folks over at FreeYourAndroid geared to bring regional Android users together. The event expanded for 2013 and became March of the Droids. Now, MotD has returned for 2014, with its next event coming up in just 16 days.
March of the Droids 2014 is a one day conference starting on Saturday May 10, 2014 at 12:00 BST. It will be held in the Life Centre in Bournemoth, UK. This year’s theme is KitKat, and the team will also explore the history of Android. Tickets are a reasonable £12.50, and can be purchased from now until the actual conference date.
To learn more about MotD 2014, be sure to visit the official site and circle them on Google+. And to go ahead and get tickets, head over to the event’s ticketing page.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
