How to take part in Google's developer conference from anywhere in the world
Thursday 14 April 2011
After the 2011 edition of Google’s coveted developer conference, Google I/O, sold out in a record 59 minutes, Google decided it was time to broaden its horizons and bring the conference to as many developers as possible around the world.
To do this, Google will be hosting I/O Extended events around the globe and launching I/O Live, an online portal where developers can watch the conference from the comfort of their own home (or from behind their computer desk while they should be working) or from anywhere there is a reliable internet connection.
Google I/O is the company's largest developer event of the year. The intensive two-day event is held in San Fransisco, USA and focuses on development for Android, Google Chrome, Google APIs, GWT, App Engine, and open web technologies.
"I/O Live will bring all of the excitement at Moscone Center to our online website," said Google in a blog post announcing the launch of the site, "where the keynotes, sessions and Developer Sandbox will come to life for audiences all over the world."
Google I/O Live will be hosting livestream video feeds from the two main session rooms on both days of the conference. The feeds will include keynotes plus Android and Chrome developer sessions.
"We’ll also aim to post HD video recordings from sessions that are not livestreamed within 24 hours," added Google.
The livestreamed sessions and additional videos will be captioned and translated into all languages that are supported by Google Translate to make the sessions even more accessible to developers in non-English speaking countries.
Tune in to http://www.google.com/events/io/2011/io2011.html from May 10 to 11 from 9AM to 6PM PDT to watch the I/O 2011 conference live stream.
If you would rather watch the conference while networking and discussing the event with other developers, Google is hosting free Google I/O Extended viewing parties in worldwide locations.
Head to https://sites.google.com/site/2011ioextended/ to see if there is a viewing event on in your city and make sure you register early as space is limited.
Follow @googleio on Twitter for further updates and visit http://www.google.com/events/io/2011/ for session times.
