The Android Community Is Awesome
This is my periodic “The Android community is awesome. So much love and feel so enriched as a person knowing y’all” silliness. OK. Carry on.

Here at touchlab we could not agree more with Huyen and the many people on Twitter saying great things about this community. Droidcon NYC 2016 ended a few weeks ago, but it feels like yesterday and we already can’t wait for the next big community event.
Thank you to everyone. To the attendees who were kind enough to trust that we would do our best to make it valuable to you. To the speakers who are generous enough to come and share their knowledge and experience. To the sponsors who are forward thinking enough to invest in the community and earn their gratitude. We appreciate you all, thank for coming.
We were really grateful to hear all of your feedback afterward. You told us that Convene was the best venue yet, that the talks were stellar, and most importantly for us, you all had a great time. For many, it was a reunion of Android developers and designers scattered across the US and abroad, and we’re blessed to be able to bring you guys together every year.
