Early Registration Kicks Off for the Google I/O Conference

by Ostatic Staff - Jan. 27, 2009

Today, Google has announced early registration for the Google I/O conference, a two-day gathering happening May 27th and 28th at Moscone Center in San Francisco. Google reports that last year over 3,000 developers participated in the I/O conference and attended more than 90 sessions, many of them focused on open source projects and platforms. This year, Android, App Engine, the Chrome browser, GWT, AJAX APIs, and many more topics will be in the spotlight. Here's more on registration and what to expect, including free online video sessions.

According to Google's advisory:

"Last year, more than 3,000 I/O attendees gained insight into developing apps with Google and open technologies. This year, we're involving the larger developer community in an even bigger way. I/O '09 will feature technical sessions, breakouts, fireside chats, and informal opportunities to meet subject matter experts. We'll also be inviting the developer community to showcase applications that they've built and to share their experiences in working with the latest web and mobile technologies."

At last year's Google I/O conference, there were a lot of good presentations for developers, and new information about Google Gears, HTML5, Javascript, AJAX, and Ruby on Rails.  The conference last year also marked the debut of a number of early, cool applications for Android. Notably, Google made many of the presenations available in free video format, and the videos are still available, as we covered here.

You can register for Google I/O here. As was true last year, the conference will also be immediately followed by Developer's Days held throughout the world.
