AnDevCon: That’s a Wrap

By November 14, 2011Events

Last Wednesday I tweeted, “If you don’t leave a conference absolutely exhausted, you’re not doing it right. #AnDevCon”

I said it because the energy at AnDevCon’s was palpable and it took a lot for all of us at Apkudo to keep up! I’m sure we’ve all been to our fair share of boring, stiff conferences, but AnDevCon blew those shows out of the water. We can’t thank the conference organizers and attendees enough for allowing us to contribute to such an amazing show!

Here are a few of the highlights from AnDevCon:

Josh’s Lightning Talk about the Apkudo Test Platform was very well received. If you weren’t able to attend these Lightning Talks, check out Josh’s talk below.

*Note to self: next time use a tripod. :/

Buzz on the exhibit floor around the Apkudo booth:

If only we took more pictures! The energy around our booth was phenomenal. We met tons of people who asked really fantastic questions about the Apkudo Test Platform and our company. We came to the show with 450 t-shirts and gave away 429 of them on the first day. Within the first hour of the exhibit floor being open, we were flooded with developers wanting to speak with us and get a shirt! All for very good reason, too. Why?

The “Get Buzzed” t-shirts were your ticket to the Apkudo After Party at Knuckles Bar! This was definitely a lot of fun. We had an awesome time meeting and getting buzzed with all of the developers that came out to Knuckles. It was quite funny to see everyone wearing the same shirt, too.

Head over to our Facebook or Google+ pages to check out all of the photos!

All of that drinking left us thirsty for knowledge. Thankfully Apkudo CTO, Nicholas Fitzroy-Dale, was able to quench that thirst with a really engaging class about app testing methods called “Testing Sucks, But It Doesn’t Have To”. If you missed his presentation, you can listen to the (lo-fi) audio here:

Testing Sucks, But It Doesn’t Have To

It takes a bit of time to download, so please be patient! Just want the slides? Fair enough. Check them out on Slideshare.

Thanks again to everyone we met at AnDevCon, we had a blast! If you’re interested in a private beta invite or want to keep in touch, email us at
