Every year Google holds a conference for developers, called Google I/O, and every year most of you - pretty much all of you but the lucky 4000 people, cannot make it for one reason or another (like the price which is $350-400 USD).
Well, this year, Google announced that it is putting up the keynote speeches, which usually contain the most interesting of the announcements, online at http://www.youtube.com/GoogleDevelopers, and they're going to do it live.
More than 4,000 developers will be joining us at Google I/O on May 19-20, and if we had the capacity, we’d host many more.
In order to give the entire developer community a chance to participate live, we're happy to announce that both keynote presentations will be streamed live.
To watch, just go to http://www.youtube.com/GoogleDevelopers at the start of the keynotes each day. We recommend watching on a high-speed connection for the best quality.
Here’s the schedule for the keynotes at I/O — it’s also available on our agenda page:
- Day 1 Keynote: Wednesday, May 19, 9:00 -10:30am PT
- Day 2 Keynote: Thursday, May 20, 8:30-10:00am PT
Both keynote sessions feature exciting new technologies, so be sure to mark your calendars!
Note that only the keynotes will be broadcast and not the myriads of developer sessions they have in store for us.
AndroidPolice At I/O
As you may have heard, I will be representing AndroidPolice.com at Google I/O and live blogging about everything important the second it happens, so make sure to follow @AndroidPolice on twitter and subscribe to the RSS feed for immediate notifications and all the juicy details.
And do we have something to look forward to this year or what! Android 2.2 Froyo is pretty much guaranteed to be revealed and demoed in one of the keynotes, most likely on the first day. That May 19th can't come fast enough.
If you are coming to the conference, I encourage you to say hello - we'll chat about Android, grab a few brewskis, and pick on Steve a little.
See you there!
