AndroidTO conference has $1million in giveaways!

Great news!  If you're at all available to make it to Toronto next week for the +AndroidTO conference, this will probably help make it worth your while.

They've got some real good partners this year; including Google, Rogers, Samsung and Sony.  Combined they're able to give out:

  • $1 Million in Google Cloud Platform Credits
  • 3 smartphones including the Moto X and LG G2 from Rogers
  • A Xperia Z1 smartphone and Xperia Z Ultra tablet from Sony
  • Collectable Android Figurines from Mindzai

I know I've got my ticket ready and I'll be there.  I'm really hoping for that Z Ultra (although I have to admit this G2 I'm testing right now is darn near 'perfect').

Going to be a great opportunity to connect with some like minded Android enthusiasts and learn more about the platform (and if you're a developer it's almost a MUST to be here... so much info for the taking).

Sound off if you're going!  If you're not, go to now and sign up!
