We had a big meetup Tuesday and lots of chats about what people are submitting for Droidcon. Pretty much everybody said they wanted ideas for topics. They also wanted to know what people were submitting. So here it is.
In the fall of 2015, touchlab partnered with Cornell Tech and Open mHealth to bring precise medical research apps to Android with an open source sdk and ux framework called ResearchStack.
Executing this project would be unlike most projects - rather than designing one experience and interface for a single product, we would be designing and building an extensible framework, with designs covering many potential bits and pieces researchers and developers might need to carry out medical research on Android.
Each year Droidcon NYC has increased in popularity, and this year is no exception. Talk submissions so far are about twice what they were in 2015 (which means probably 4x 2014, but I haven’t looked). To improve the overall content, we're going to figure out a way to communicate what types of topics have been submitted, and hopefully a way to get suggestions from the community.
