“Father of Android,” will be at Code/Mobile conference in Oct. 7-8

I’m thrilled to announce that Andy Rubin, the “father of Android,” will be at this year’s Code/Mobile conference, Oct. 7-8 at The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay.

Rubin may be best known for creating and growing Android, the company he started that was acquired by Google in 2005, but his experience with mobile technology extends far beyond that. Before Android, Rubin developed the Sidekick, a pioneering device that was one of the first to combine the features that make a smartphone smart.

He also led Google’s robotics and automation division. And since leaving the company last year, in addition to becoming a venture partner at Redpoint Ventures, he has launched Playground Global to help hardware startups bring their products to market.

At Code/Mobile, we’ll talk with Rubin about where the technology he helped invent will end up next, such as in cars and robots. He’ll join Walt Mossberg onstage in our signature red chairs for what promises to be a fascinating conversation about computing’s future.

Learn more about the program, which also includes speakers from Facebook, Ericsson, Google, Twitter, AT&T and Fitbit, and sign up to join us.

Space is limited, so register now to be there in person.

Producer, Code/Mobile
