The Big Android BBQ is One Month Away!

Here’s a friendly reminder to let you know that the annual Big Android BBQ is but one month away. Like last year, the event takes place in Austin, Texas over the course of two days and is hosted by a number of Android sites. If you haven’t purchased a ticket yet then you might miss out on meeting some of your favorite Android bloggers from places such as AndroidGuys, AndroidCentral, and AndroidSpin. We also hear that you’ll be able to rub shoulders with folks from Androinica and AndroidAndMe as well.  Then there’s this little community of people from XDA-developers coming too!

The unofficial kick-off is Friday September 30th where we’ll be hosting a pool-party to welcome those of you getting into town early. We’ll be passing out a bunch of freebies in the form of gift cards, accessories, apps, and more. If you get in on Friday then we want to see you at Staybridge Suites between 7PM -10PM.

Things get underway at 10AM sharp on Saturday and will feature a slew of sessions, hands-on time, and meet-and-greets with members from LG, Sphero, Spacetime Studios, CyanogenMod, Motorola Mobility, Adobe, Swype, HTC, Texas Instruments, and much more!  And as if that wasn’t enough to fill your day, AndroidCentral is hosting a bar crawl from 10PM until you likely pass out.

Sunday is the official barbecue, starting at 1PM and running until 9PM.  Come get your fill of barbecue from our own Ray Walters.  If you attended last year then you already know just how good it tastes!

We’ve got tons of volunteers and help on hand this year to make sure this second event is even better than the first!  We look forward to seeing a bunch of you there!

How To Use The Android Emulator

The Nexus S hasn’t been released yet, but besides the vague and instable custom ROMs, there is a legal way to try out Gingerbread. It’s called the SDK Emulator, originally designed for developers to test their apps with the newest platforms with different configurations.

    Is it smart to have so much of the Android Brain-Trust in one place at one time ?  Maybe you should stay back, Scott, to ensure competent succession !  Have a great time, it sounds AWESOME !
