Google I/O brings together thousands of developers for two days of deep technical content, focused on building the next generation of web, mobile, and enterprise applications with Google and open web technologies such as Android, Google Chrome, Google APIs, Google Web Toolkit, App Engine, and more.
I/O Extended are viewing events hosted around the world by Google offices, our GTUG partners, and student ambassadors. I/O Extended is for those developers who are not able to attend Google I/O, but still want to connect with other passionate and talented developers and watch parts of Google I/O live. Learn more and find an I/O Extended event near you on the I/O Extended site.
I/O BootCamp is a smaller, more intimate event held the day before Google I/O focused on getting you ready for the main event. Through beginner-level lectures and hands-on lab sessions, BootCamp provides an overview of our major developer platforms.
This year, BootCamp will take place on Monday, May 9th, 2011 at the Mission Bay Conference Center. Please note the different venue, as the event will not be held in the same location as Google I/O.
For more information about I/O BootCamp, including agenda and session information, please visit the I/O BootCamp site.
I/O will feature over 80 sessions ranging from introductory talks to deep dives on the nuts and bolts of a particular technology or product. Fireside chats will also return this year, where you can ask questions to Google engineers in an informal, intimate setting.
The Developer Sandbox, first introduced at I/O 2009, returns this year. The Sandbox will feature over 100 developers who have built applications based on technologies and products featured at I/O. These developers will be on hand to demo their apps, talk about how they built them, answer questions, and exchange ideas.
Get one-on-one help from product experts at Office Hours. Products featured in breakout sessions will have a designated 'office space' where members of Google Engineering and Developer Relations teams will be available for drop-in Q&A. Come ask questions, share your code snippets, and meet new people.
I/O is a great opportunity to connect with new and familiar faces. We're excited to have so many bright and talented developers of a wide range of apps, companies, and technologies join us from around the world. You'll be able to meet other developers, discuss ideas, and share what you've been working on.
After Hours Evening Event
The I/O After Hours party is an action-packed celebration of technical and artistic innovation and an interactive playground featuring futuristic technologies, robots, vehicles, games and other innovative gadgets. This year’s theme, Industrial Strength, will feature the latest jaw-dropping technology and demonstrations fresh from the lab or the garage with our partners in crime from Gadgetoff and Maker Faire! We’ve invited inventors, educators, artists, visionaries from MIT, Georgia Tech Center, iRobot and Madagascar Institute to share their craziest vehicles, “electrifying” performances, sustainable designs, smart technology and vision for the future of games.
