“We're very excited to be participating in VTM's first Android conference in February,” Lauren Darcey, Conference Co-Chair said. “The event is ideally timed to give everyone a chance to review all that Android's newest version, the highly anticipated  Ice Cream Sandwich release, has to offer and then share our findings with each other in a professional context.”

Shane Conder, Conference Co-Chair added, “As a developer-centric conference, Ice Cream Sandwich will likely take center stage, but we have a number of exciting speakers to cover other Android topics as well, many of which we haven't ever seen featured at any other conference. It's shaping up to be a unique learning experience for everyone.”
