- Android TV Game Bootcamp Friday, July 10, 2015 from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM
***Please register on Eventbrite for this event*** This event is free with the promo code "abgamedeveloper" or through the links below. About the Event: The Android TV team is thrilled to invite you to the first Android TV Game Bootcamp & Code Lab that will be held on July 10th, 2015 on Google campus in Mountain View, CA USA! This event offers a unique opportunity for game developers: • Learn more about Android TV • Get first-hand experience in our code labs • Be part of an exclusive Q&A with the Google Android TV engineering team There will be 12 sessions lead by Google engineers along with code labs at the end of the day. Please click here for more (http://bit.ly/androidtvgame)details on the sessions, Google Engineers and to register! Why learn about Android TV?: Reason 1: Android TV is really "just Android," so it's fully supported in the core Android releases and keeps up to date with all the latest changes. This means that porting existing Android apps is seamless for developers. Reason 2: You will learn more about D-pad. Android TV was redesigned for the living room experience, so all apps must be designed specifically for D-pad in the living room. Reasons 3: It is easy! Developers typically have their Android games running in a day, and then take a couple of weeks to correctly support hardware controllers and to remove any touchscreen or phone specific text or icons. Reason 4: Sony smart TVs will run Android TV, with Sharp and Philips following this year. We also have stand-alone devices from NVidia (Shield TV), Razor (Forge TV) Register today by going to http://bit.ly/androidtvgame (http://bit.ly/androidtvgame)

We will take people with a slide first who registered on eventbrite, followed by those who registered on eventbrite with no slide, followed by those who have no slide and just rsvped on the meetup Q. Will you do this again, possibly in Mountain View also? A. Yes we plan to, especially if a good portion of the people who have indicated show up for this one in SF and yes we want one in Mountain view also which is harder to get hosts for, especially those who will help with refreshments, but we may have some bites on Mountain View venue and also if you know of some who are willing to provide refreshments let us know.
