Conferences & Meetups
I’d always been under the impression that the IT scene in East Anglia was a little quiet, and more so the further you got away from London, but I was quite pleasantly surprised to stumble upon the SyncNorwich group, a bunch of IT enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, and coders that meetup and share knowledge, fantastic, I had to go and check that out.
Over summer 2010, my company held an in-house competition to muster up some interest in mobile
development, by providing a prize for anyone who could come up with an innovative mobile
application, platform independent. After this competition, fuelled by fascination for all things
Android, I requested to attend DroidCon UK, a conference dedicated to Android development.
Excited by the line-up of speakers, talks from Google, and celebrities of the Android world such
as Mark Murphy, this was a fantastic opportunity to go along and soak up as much knowledge as
possible, and see what people are achieving with the latest mobile technology.
