Are you going to the Big Android BBQ? We will see you there


If you’ve somehow missed it, we thought now might be a good time to remind you about the upcoming Big Android BBQ. It’s one of the largest Android fan events on the planet, and it’s happening on October 1st and 2nd here in Austin, TX.

The Big Android BBQ is entering its second year. Over 500 nerds (myself included) attended the first one, and this year’s event is shaping up to be even better. While we were a bit too busy to host this time around (with the new website build and all), we will still be attending in decent numbers: Taylor, Angie and I will all be there.

Check out the video below for a bit of last year’s shenanigans:

If you still don’t have a ticket, you’re in luck! Tickets are still available but will be increasing in price on Aug 31st, giving you a few more days to score a ticket with the discounted pricing. If you’re going to be in the area, or if you don’t mind travel, the Big Android BBQ is a great place to connect with like-minded Android fans. You should join us!

    This needs to be held at the same time in different cities across the country (where all the writers live), and it could be an awesome AaM / Android tweetup. Glad I thought of it. :)

    It’s not midweek! It’s on Saturday and Sunday. Come join us!

    Pfft. The Big Android BBQ should be in Kansas City!

  • The Truth Squad

    Why do 90% of the people in the video look like pigs ready for slaughter? Do smart phones make you gain weight?

    • RevSpaminator

      Obviously. Ask any Apple Evangelist. Not only will Android make you gain weight, it will also turn our kids into communists and make us wear underpants on our heads. I prefer briefs myself as they don’t interfere with my G2.

    Ok i wasn’t at Last year’s bbq but I was at the team android at sxsw. So imagine this will as good if not better. I’m san antonio so yeah definitely going. I wanted to be a volunteer but I haven’t been contacted yet. Sigh.

  • RevSpaminator

    I can’t go but I did finish smoking two shoulder roasts this weekend. Pulled pork anyone? :)

  • pekosROB

    Does the ticket get you anything cool like a shirt? Or is it basically just covering the cost of the bbq?

    And is the bbq catered or just a smorgasborg of meats bought by the android community?

    • Angie Strickland

      I think there will be other goodies around.

  • Marcus

    Ugh. I would go if I didn’t have school to worry about and I lived in Texas :(

  • Pete

    Do we need guns or is this a save gathering?

  • GiqueGEAR_Todd

    Sounds like a blast. But I would vote for K.C. also :-)

  • Dr.Carpy

    I would love to go, but alas I live in Canada. If you want I’ll send you all some poutine!
