Android DevCamp by Silicon Valley Android Developers

I am very glad to announce that, we are going to host a 2.5 days DevCamp at March 4th, with support from Google and PayPal, and several sponsors (TBC)

Paypal facility can host up to 500 peple.  The format is very similar to GTUG Campout 2010 (Thanks to Van). Should be a big and fun event to attend!

I am looking for volunteers, sponsors. drop me a note with proper subject if you are interested.

Android DevCamp detail (Formal draft):

Android Dev Camp is a weekend-long event where participants will have an opportunity to design, develop, and demo a complete application over the course of three days. The event kicks off at the Hacker DoJo on Friday, March 4, where ideas and teams will come together. Teams will then have the rest of the weekend to build their applications before presenting their work to the public on Sunday evening.
Not Your Typical, Run-of-the-Mill Hackathon

Instead of back-to-back presentations followed by several variations of “Hello World,” DevCamp is all about coding and completing a full-featured web application using Android 3.0 technologies. While there will be opportunities to try new APIs and learn new features, teams will be expected to produce a real, working application in 2.5 days in return for free meals and a chance for fame and fortune should one create the next killer app… and there may even be a few prizes to boot.

If you feel up to the challenge, please choose a single ticket of the type most appropriate for yourself and fill out the registration form. Attendance is capped, so register soon — all registrations are on a first-come-first-serve basis.
