The droidcon Greece 2015 took place on the 10th-12th of September at the Science Center and Technology Museum “NOESIS” in Thessaloniki.

It was the first droidcon in Greece and you know that I like to attend those first events of a series because they are always something special. This event was no exception. I really liked it.




Venue

The Science Center and Technology Museum “NOESIS” was a bit outside of the city but there was a droidcon shuttle bus from the Aristotelous Square in the city to NOESIS in the morning and one back in the evening. Also there was a regular bus stop not far away from the venue. The main room was like a small cinema with a nice stage. The WIFI connection was good at most times.

Organization

The organization was something special here. There was no big company or big sponsor. The droidcon Greece was organized by a very enthusiastic team around the GDG Thessaloniki. They did an extremely good job and I can't thank them enough for their commitment to make this event a big success. A special thank you goes to Eliza Camber for supporting us speakers. Great job guys!

Conclusion

It was the first droidcon in Greece (and btw my first trip to Greece) and it was a great one. The team is already planning for the next droidcon Greece in 2016. You should keep an eye on their website and follow them on Twitter, Facebook and/or Google+.
