A happy, growing family

The Big Android BBQ was started in 2009 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 ole' fashioned Texas BBQ. The event has grown larger in attendance and scope each year since its inception. Today, the BABBQ is MORE than just an event; it is an enthusiastic, year-round family on the forefront of all things android.
