For three days in sunny (and then rainy) Dallas, a group of several hundred Android enthusiasts came together to share some words, some experiences and some food. The Big Android BBQ 2013 wrapped up last night with a fantastic party full of great people and money raised for charity, but the two days prior were just as action packed.
Android fans, journalists, sponsors and event volunteers came from all over the country (and the world) to talk about our favorite mobile OS and share some like-minded discussions. The Big Android BBQ gave everyone a chance to learn a thing or two about devices of all kinds, hear some great speakers and meet with representatives from well-known companies as well.
I have to say that the BBQ was an absolute blast, and most of all I'm glad I had the opportunity to meet so many Android Central readers and fans over the past couple of days.
So to all of the great people who attended this year, thanks for making this weekend one to remember. Have a safe trip home and we'll hopefully see you again next year at another great Big Android BBQ.
