Android Update: The future of Android and a celebration of tech in Leamington Spa
15 November, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Android is the world’s most popular mobile platform. To date, it is responsible for powering hundreds of millions of mobile devices in more than 190 countries.
The app economy was responsible for around 330,000 jobs in the UK in 2017 and the Android eco-system was responsible for 242,000 of these, contributing to the 1.2 billion pounds that video games brings to the UK’s revenue. There are currently 2,000 games jobs in Leamington Spa which equates to 10% of the UK games industry’s jobs.
In partnership with TIGA, Google is proud to present this Android Update talk in the tech hub of Silicon Spa. We are honoured that the event will be opened by the Secretary of State for DCMS Mr Jeremy Wright.
The evening will feature a talk from Matt Henderson (Head of Product at Google Play App Publishing) on the importance of Android to the digital economy, where Android is heading in the future and what opportunities it presents to developers be they new to the industry or heads of studios. We will also hear from Ryan Davies (Digital Marketing Manager at Kwalee) on developing and marketing mobile games in Leamington Spa.
The event is free and will be followed by drinks and light catering. Capacity is limited so please sign up for your place today.
