One of the sadder aspects of the UK is that we just donâ€™t have enough Android enthusiast get togethers. Outside of developer workshops we only really have OEM fan site hoorahs and launch events (which only the press tend to get invites for) and the outstanding community March of the Droids event. We should therefore do our best to support any community enthusiast event that happens to come our way, so I am really glad to say that unarguably the most controversial community development team in Android will be visiting our shores and hosting a free to attend meet and greet. Cyanogen Inc will be visiting Nothern Ireland (possibly the most overlooked area of the UK for Android events) on the 19th of June and in attendence will be Steve Kondik himself.
This will be the only fan gathering while Steve visits these shores, so if you ever wanted to meet the man behind CyanogenMod in person, this is a must. The event which is simply a night of chat, beer and laughs will be held in The Hudson Bar on Gresham street in Belfast and will take place from 8pm until closing time. This is being held for genuine Android enthusiasts only so there will be some screening of attendeeâ€™s and as places are limited, please only book a place if you truly intend to come along.
The event is being held in conjunction with Droid Horizon (a great UK Android site) and applications for places canÂ be made via their Google Documents Form.
Refreshments will be providied on the night thanks to the MASSIVE amounts of investment CM has secured of late (well itâ€™s only fair some of it finds itâ€™s way out to the community at large) so dont forget to raise a glass to Microsoft as well (did I just type that?).
We really hope to see as many of you as possible there supporting a community event for enthusiasts from the biggest name in ROM development.
