The complete schedule for I/O is now available, so if you’re attending Google I/O on May 10-11, you can now start planning two days packed with sessions and events. The schedule for I/O BootCamp is also up for your convenience.
The in-depth descriptions of I/O sessions, complete with speakers for each, are available on the Sessions page of the I/O site. With so many great sessions to choose from, we wanted to highlight two special sessions that will take place at the close of Day 1.
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.
We’ve also posted our Office Hours schedule. Google engineers will be on hand to answer any questions you have about the products and technologies featured at I/O. We’ll be holding office hours for Accessibility, Android, Apps, App Engine, Chrome, Commerce, Developer Tools/GWT, Geo, Google APIs, Google TV, Google Mobile Ads/AdMob, and YouTube.
