Event Details



Don't miss the 3rd annual Big Android BBQ. We've got more sessions, more space, more exhibitors, more sponsors, and a lot more fun in store for you. 

The Big Android BBQ is the world’s preeminent mobile technology conference for Android developers and enthusiasts alike. This year, the Big Android BBQ is moving into the state-of-the-art Hurst Convention Center in the Dallas Fort Worth area of Texas. With more sessions and exhibitors, the Big Android BBQ 2012 is bigger and better than ever.

With numerous speakers and dozens of sessions, the Big Android BBQ is your opportunity to get your next project underway by networking with experts that have diverse experiences in Android programming.

Not a developer? But are a huge fan of the little green robot and want to have a good time with other like-minded individuals? The Big Android BBQ has you covered! With sessions for enthusiasts and evening activities, we promise you’ll have the time of your life this October! 

This year, we've enabled different ticket levels to allow the user to create their own experience. We want YOU to have an opportunity to choose your level of support. In exchange, you’ll receive some pretty sweet bonus benefits to enjoy during the event.  

We hope you will join us this October 19 – 21. We are more excited about this year’s Big Android BBQ than ever before. For more information about Big Android BBQ sessions and activities, and to stay up-to-date with all the latest BBQ news, please visit the event page at This year promises to be the biggest and the best thanks to all of you!

Before I get to other questions, let me answer the one everybody asks first.
Tickets go on sale July 11th, and prices start at $50.

Tickets (on sale starting July 11)
There will be a total of 1,000 tickets available (900+ of which will be priced at $50).  There will also be about a hundred “bracketed” tickets that include extras like lunch and a separate dinner with the BigAndroidBBQ staff.

Tickets will be available for about 60 days, or until they sell out. Tickets are non-refundable, as they have been in the past, but we will accommodate transfers when we deem them appropriate. There will be no transfers after September 19th.

Speakers & Sessions
The big news is that we will be hosting almost three times as many sessions as we have previously.  We will also provide a better environment for giving talks (indoors, AC, Projectors, etc.). We have pushed really hard to get community members involved, along with participation from sponsors.

If you would like to make a presentation, please let us know.  We have filled up more than half the available slots, but there are still some spaces available if you would like to speak or lead a session.  Just make sure you fill out this form before it’s too late.

We’re really impressed with the speakers we have already selected and with the topics they will discuss.  People like Mark MurphyMat AbdouJon Hancock and more have come up with captivating topics, ranging from working with smart watches and the latest versions of Android to dissecting in app-billing and subscription models. We even have a session for our BBQ loving attendees where you can learn the secretes of our own expert BBQ chef. In coming weeks, we will announce a full lineup of speakers, as well as details about their talks.

We understand that each of the three hotels still has plenty of rooms available in the BigAndroidBBQ blocks.  The cut-off date for the BigAndroidBBQ rate is September 19.  If you are staying for the entire conference, you’ll want to book rooms for the nights of October 19th through the 21st.  Each hotel has free wifi as well as continental breakfast for those sober enough to eat.

That’s right folks! The great group of community focused developers that make up the Cyanogenmod Team is delivering a session at this year’s Big Android BBQ! We are very excited to invite the CyanogenMod team back to the stage to discuss the latest in their distribution of Android. After their remarks, the Cyanogenmod Team will open the floor to questions from the audience. Questions will be moderated on a first come, first served basis so be sure to get your seat early. Remember that preferred seating is available to anyone who has taken advantage of the Gingerbread and higher ticket packages. We can’t think of a better way to close out the third year of the BBQ!

Make sure to follow the Cyanogenmod Team on Google+Twitter, and Facebook to keep up with their latest Big Android BBQ 2012 news.

After a slight delay we’ve worked out a preliminary schedule for the 2012 Big Android BBQ.  While this is a rough draft, we wanted to highlight the activities for each day as we worked out the finer points.

As with previous years, we’ll kick off festivities with a pool party at one of our featured hotels on Friday night.  Saturday, for the majority of the day, we’ll host sessions and break in the afternoon continuing the evening with a bar crawl.  Sunday morning, we’ll start fresh with a new group of sessions breaking again in the afternoon after the CyanogenMod panel and returning in the evening for the BBQ Festivities at 6pm.

If you haven’t, yet, pick up your tickets at EventBrite this year is going to be bigger than ever before.
