Project Ara, Google’s Modular Smartphone, Gets A Trio Of Developer Conferences

Google typically holds its annual I/O conference towards the end of June, but this year, the search giant will add a few more developer conferences to its schedule—one completely centered on its new experimental modular smartphone, “Project Ara.”

On Thursday, Google announced (via Google+) the first of three Ara Developers’ Conferences on April 15-16—a meeting that will be held online, with a “limited number of participants” able to attend in person. The conference will highlight the release of the Ara Module Developers’ Kit (MDK), which is a free and open platform designed to contain everything developers need to build an Ara module. (Hint: It may or may not involve 3D printing.)

The full agenda for April’s Ara Developers’ Conference will go live in the coming weeks on projectara.com.
