The big and always exciting Google I/O Developer conference kicks off next week in San Francisco starting on Wednesday, June 27th, and we are sure to see tons of excellent things from the folks at Mountain View. From Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a Nexus Tablet, and multiple other things this is a quick shout out to inform you all that Android Community as well as our sister site SlashGear will be there live! Capturing all the news as it happens.
Now Google I/O isn't just about what is new for Android, or Google. It's about fans, developers, and everyone else in-between coming together to learn and share ideas. It is more a developer conference than anything, but we surely will be learning plenty about what Google has planned for the future as well. As we mentioned above, we'll be there live covering anything that happens in the world of Android, but also be searching out, interviewing, and finding developers. That is mainly why we'll be on-site (and to see this Nexus Tablet) so things might be a bit slow around here except for the breaking news.
In more exciting news our Co-founder and Editor-in-Chief, Vincent Nguyen was kindly invited by Google to write about Google I/O, what it means to him, and what he expects to see so you'll want to check that out at their Developer Blog.
“We’ll be covering I/O wearing two different hats, which is fitting considering Android has broken through into the mainstream as well as remaining a developer’s playground. For SlashGear, we’ll take a more consumer-centric approach: looking at the technologies and developments that will make a day-to-day difference in users’ lives. It’s really easy to put together a slick demo and presentation, but we’ll be trying to make sure the SlashGear audience sees the context too, where they’ll actually benefit once that technology reaches the market.
On the flipside there’s the Android Community readership, which tends to be more advanced in its understanding of hardware, code and apps, as well as eager and willing to dig into the minutiae of what makes Google I/O special. There, we’ll spend less time on context – though that’s still important – and more on specifics, keeping readers up to speed on the cutting edge.”
He's never missed a Google I/O event and has followed Google every step of the way. Going along with him will be fun, and a learning experience as this will be my first Google I/O. Don't get me wrong, CES is fun, but I'm all about Android. Google I/O 2012 officially kicks off June 27th to June 29th at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California, and we’ll be there right from the start to enjoy it all! Follow along right here or at SlashGear. Look through the I/O 2012 schedule and let us know what you'd like to see in the comment section below.
