This year we will be having a new guest MC in Mark Dearlove. No stranger to the Android world. From his tech background, daily work, and also doing some bits with Modaco during his time in and around the community among other things. A talker by trade, we feel he will host our event with professional standards and plenty of confidence to go along with it. An attendee in the past, Mark knows fully what Motd is all about and we think you’ll love him like we do!

With Mark we also have the company he works for coming along. Here we are happy to announce Tealium will be coming along to Reading for March of the Droids. Tealium powers the new era of real-time customer engagement and marketing, enabling global businesses to unlock their customer data and create more meaningful, relevant customer experiences. The company’s industry-leading customer data platform, comprised of an enterprise tag management solution, omnichannel customer segmentation and action engine and suite of rich data services, creates a vendor-neutral data foundation that spans web, mobile, offline and IoT.

Along with their expertise, knowledge and presentation they will be giving, they will also be bringing a foosball table. Yes, a connected Foosball table you can all play on! Players can “sign in” to the foosball table using a QR code or their email address. For those that opt-in, their foosball performance is stitched together with their online interactions into a single profile. Scores from the game are fed into Tealium AudienceStream, which badges players based on those scores.
