Project Ara moves forward with Google hosting a developer conference in April

ara1blogpost
Project Ara, the lego-like snap together modular phone project which moved over to Google under the Advanced Technology and Projects Group as part of the sale of Motorola to Lenovo, is picking up steam with Google announcing a developer conference will be held in April at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California near to the Google Campus.

This is the first in what Google plans to be a series of three conferences involving Project Ara to be held during 2014, with this conference specifically looking to standardise the Module Developers’ Kit (MDK) for an Alpha release. The conference will feature ‘a detailed walk-through of existing and planned features of the Ara platform, a briefing and community feedback sessions on the alpha MDK, and an announcement of a series of prize challenges for module developers’. The results of the project will be put up onto the Project Ara website.

It’s a conference intended to help developers and Google would like for developers to be the ones attending, but fans of the concept will be able to follow along via live streams and you can bet that we will be.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

It looks fun, and I’m happy that it’s going beyond a cool idea that doesn’t come to anything.
