Schibsted Android Jam 2017

Schibsted Tech Polska invites all Schibsted Android developers to Gdańsk, Poland for an internal conference – a two-day Android jam session. 

After successful Schibsted iOS Jam, we decided to organize another mobile conference, this time dedicated to Android developers.

Watch the live stream from Android Jam

1. Knowledge sharing
Get a chance to meet people who create shared components and tools. Let’s avoid reinventing the wheel and make better use of what we’ve already done. And move faster. 

2. Community building
By closer cooperation, we can achieve much more. We can develop Android standards and recommendations, promote good solutions and contribute to Open Source and Android community more actively.

3. Socializing
Get to know other Schibsted Android developers. People are not Slack avatars. It’s always easier to talk to someone you’ve already met.

Date: October 2-3
Venue: Olivia Business Centre, Sky Club
Address: Aleja Grunwaldzka 472, Gdańsk, Poland
