AnDevCon III – Another One for the Books

This time last week we were drinking lots of water and taking aspirin, handing out t-shirts on the show floor, talking to developers about Apkudo App Analytics and Apkudo Device Analytics, and debating how awesome the Apkudo cookies were (survey says: very awesome, as seen here).

We’d just pulled ourselves from bed after a wonderful party at Knuckle’s Bar the night before replete with drinks, food, and a lot of laughs. We met some really excellent people and reconnected with plenty of others. While it’s true that conferences can take a lot out of you (energy and electrolytes, mostly), they definitely give back much, much more. So huge thanks to all of you – our new friends, our old friends, and even those few devs we didn’t get a chance to meet. We hope our paths cross again soon!

As promised here are some highlights from AnDevCon III!

Look Out, Leader Boards…

We started off the show with a quick 30 minute session, “Who Needs Thumbs? Reverse Engineering Scramble With Friends,” on Tuesday, May 15. According to the AnDevCon organizers, ours was the highest attended session of the conference! Congrats to David and Josh on their great class and thank you to all who attended! We recorded the session and you can check it out on YouTube in a 3 part series. Unfortunately, Steven Spielberg cancelled on us at the last minute and James Cameron was all, “I’m only doing Avatar movies from now on!” so I had to record this myself. Consider it an homage to the “bootleg movie theater” style films of yore.

When Lightning Strikes

We went old school with this recording. Good ole tripod. In case you missed Josh’s 5 minutes of fame you can take a gander here to get a sneak peek at our new App Analytics UI, to hear about Ape, and our work with OEMs and Operators via Apkudo Device Analytics.

Android Developers Know How to Party

Wednesday night marked the second Apkudo Drink-Up. There were drinks (many, many drinks), food, and even a themed drink: The Apkudo. What’s The Apkudo you ask? Maker’s Mark on the Rocks. Like Apkudo App Analytics, it’s uncomplicated, easy, and awesome. Perfect drink for a perfect night. Thanks to everyone who came out, we had an absolute blast! Check out a few pictures below. The rest are on our Facebook page. Spot yourself in one of the pics? “Like” us and we’ll tag you!

Once again, thanks to everyone who helped make AnDevCon III a success – from BZ Media to the Apkudo staff that held things down in Baltimore to all of the bad-ass attendees, we couldn’t have done it without you!

Until next time…
