Set your calendars, schedule time off from work and start saving for those hotel and airline tickets — the 2014 Big Android BBQ has officially been set for October 16th through the 18th. The fifth annual community BBQ is set in Hurst, Texas again, with the Hurst Conference Center playing host to this wonderful, geeky (or wonderfully geeky) affair.

Beyond hanging out with people just as enthusiastic as you and eating good food, the Big Android BBQ is a productive time where people discuss the mobile industry, development, Android and technology through panels and events. Parties, giveaways and more also add to the whole “you need to be there” factor.

Speakers from deep within the industry such as Noble Ackerson and Steve Kondik tend to make their presence known at the #BBQ, and many more will surely be on tap to spread their wisdom and have a good time. Just take a look at our recollection of 2013′s shindig to see how much fun there is to be had.

Much of the specifics about tickets, hotel and airline packages and more are still being worked out, but it shouldn’t be long before we hear about what 2014′s meetup will have to offer.

    This will be my 3rd BBQ. I can’t wait! If you’re going to the BBQ this year, let me know. It’s definitely worth it. Tons of amazing food from Ray (master BBQ cook), awesome Android related sessions to get your knowledge on, tons of beer, all sorts of giveaways, and swag.

    The Big Android BBQ has the largest alcohol budget per any event at the Hurst Convention Center :P

      Not just at the convention center, but in the city of Hurst! This year will be my third one. I’ll likely volunteer this year, since I’m a local.

    I’ll throw something on the grill here in Austin and pretend like this event was still cool. :P
