Cooperation: droidcon & newthinkingJuly 2, 2014
newthinking is set to become co-organiser of the Berlin droidcon and will also take charge of coordinating the global events, in co-operation with the droidcon team. The berlin-based company for open source strategies and projects will act as a contact point for all partners, sponsors, as well as the whole community.
Using its events, know-how and resources newthinking will help to further professionalise the droidcon and join Boris Jebsen in further developing and supporting it in future.
Julia Gemählich and Christian Müller, newthinking executive board: “We have been using free software and open source for years, have supported its development and already organise developer conferences, such as Berlin Buzzwords. We are pleased to be able to apply our experiences in the organisation of droidcon and thus be closer involved in the exciting developments happening on the Android platform. One of our main goals is to help droidcon stay true to its foundation: An independent conference made by and aimed at the global droidcon community.”
Boris Jebsen, co-founder and CEO of droidcon: “With a constant rise in the number of participants and business partners in Berlin and an increasing number of droidcons happening globally, approaching an experienced partner and bringing them on board was the natural next step. We are pleased to have found this partner in newthinking and its experienced and friendly team. Together, we will continue to develop the Berlin droidcon as an independent Android developer event. It will also allow us to support our worldwide partners, in 12 countries and on four continent,s more professionally in terms of the organisation of existing droidcons and in establishing new ones. In short: Androiders rock the world!”
