XDA:DevCon ’14 Call for Speakers
Last year’s xda:devcon in Miami, FL brought together people from all over the mobile spectrum—from application and platform developers to security professionals to enthusiasts and those looking to learn and grow personally and professionally. We had a great set of speakers presenting topics ranging from UI/UX implementations to Security to Open Source Software Development to Mobile Processor Information and Application Monetization, and they all did a fantastic job. Make sure to visit last year’s site for more information on the speakers and to grab their talks (if still available online), as well as the XDA TV Event Roundup.
At xda:devcon ’14, we are again looking for speakers who will bring knowledge and inspiration to the attendees. There are slots available for workshop ideas, hardware and platform overviews, application development sessions, and more. If you are interested in speaking and feel you have a topic which would be well-suited for our audience, please fill out the Call for Speakers form and we will get back with you shortly.
