To all those who did not make it this time, please don't lose hope! We will have more editions of Open Ears Forum in the future. Not to mention, numerous community events. // Greetings everyone, We’re in a constant endeavour to engage with and develop the OnePlus community in India. And one of our major focus points is to enhance the relationship between OnePlus and the developer community. Earlier this month, we brought our product and community focus together for 5G Apps of Tomorrow, a project that aims at recognising and nurturing innovation from developers around the globe. This takes our idea of creating together with the community forward in the right direction. With this edition of Open Ears Forum, we aim to discuss how we can better support developers in building great software as well as see what new programs and initiatives we can explore with our community. [How to Apply] This is the second Open Ears Forum in India, almost 10 months after our first edition. And we’re glad to bring the Open Ears experience back to Goa.
