Official Community Partner

As I mentioned earlier today in my From the Editor's Desk post, our sibling site Android Central is taking a page out of the CrackBerry books and will be firing up the Android Central Live Show in San Francisco next week at the first annual Samsung Developers Conference.

Going live with coverage isn't easy, and we have some solid experiencing doing it now thanks to CrackBerry Live at BlackBerry Live, so I'll be flying down to SF to give a helping hand to Android Central's Phil Nickinson and Andrew Martonik as they take to the stage and interview developers, session leaders and other attendees next Monday and Tuesday (28th/29th). Tune into for all of the livestreaming action and show coverage.

These days a lot of mobile developers build on multiple platforms, so I know we have a lot of BB10 developers reading this who are also developing for Android. So if you're in San Francisco next week, you should totally pick up a ticket (they're only $299 and there's still some left) and swing on by the event. And if you have any hot apps to show off or want to get on the Android Central Live show, hit up the link below for more details and you can likely do just that. 

Of course, if you find me in the evening (typically near the lobby bar) and mention this post, your next drink is on me. It's the CrackBerry way - even if I'm helping out an Android show. :)
