The full schedule for Google I/O, coming up on May 10-11, is now available. If you are planning to attend, you can start planning your schedule for the event. If not, never fear, Android Community will be there in force, covering the event for you. The schedule for the I/O BootCamp, held on Monday, May 9th from 8am-6pm is also up.
The bootcamp includes sessions like “Android for Beginners”, and “Google TV, the new frontier for App Development”, along with quite a few sessions dealing with Google APIs. The full conference schedule has fourteen different tracks, two for Android on the first day, and three on day 2. Topics include NFC, Mobile Apps, HTML 5, Apps for Google TV, developing Android games, and much more. It looks to be a jam-packed session, and we will covering it in-depth.
You can also access in depth descriptions of the sessions on the sessions page of the I/O site. Google engineers will also hold office hours to answer questions about products and technologies discussed at the conference. Office hours topics include: Accessibility, Android, Apps, App Engine, Chrome, Commerce, Developer Tools/GWT, Geo, Google APIs, Google TV, Google Mobile Ads/AdMob, and YouTube.
Two special sessions are being held towards the end of day one, and the Google Code Blog has this description of them:
Ignite. Fast-paced, fun, and thought-provoking, Ignite captures the best of geek culture in a series of five-minute speed presentations. It’s a high-energy session of short talks by people who have an idea—and the guts to get onstage and share it. This year we will learn about the Brain API, the similarities of Disneyland and Burning Man, and a dissection of the Tiger Mom myth.
Google Ventures Meetup. Google Ventures will be holding an experiment in controlled chaos. This event will bring attendees together with members of the Google Ventures core team (investors and experienced startup veterans), and select portfolio companies ranging from small, new teams to later-stage, successful companies. The room will be arranged to enable attendees to speak to panels of “experts” in bite-sized, three-minute 1:1 conversations, otherwise known as VC speed dating. Our goal is to connect both practicing and soon-to-be entrepreneurs with experts who can impart advice, lessons learned, and quick tips.
