About the BABBQ

The Big Android BBQ was started as a backyard event with the goal of bringing the online community of android developers and enthusiasts together to meet in “real life” and enjoy some good ol’ fashion Texas BBQ. The BABBQ has grown larger in attendance and scope each year since its inception in 2009. Today, the BABBQ is MORE than just an event; it is an enthusiastic, year round family on the forefront of all things android.
