UPDATE 11/28/11: We have moved the dates of Google I/O 2012 so that we can extend the conference to three days. The new dates are June 27-29, 2012. For full details, please see the announcement post.


This year’s Google I/O saw 1 million developers join us from around the world at Moscone Center, via I/O Live, and at our I/O Extended viewing parties. As we prepare to round the corner into 2012, mark your calendars: Google I/O 2012 will be returning to Moscone Center West in San Francisco on April 24-25 (UPDATE: now June 27-29).

Registration details will be coming soon, but for a preview of what’s to come, check out videos from last year’s event, as well as photos from our Google Developer Day events, currently taking place in eight cities around the world. Keep following us here on the Google Code Blog for the latest.

In the past four years, Monica Tran has been around the world, working as a Product Marketing Manager in Mountain View, London, and Tokyo. After a good run on Google I/O, Monica is back to lead the charge on Google Developer Day, happening in 8 cities worldwide in 2011.

  14. Can Google just tell everyone they won't be getting any free stuff this time? I would really like to go, but having it sell out in 30 minutes is kind of tough. I think free stuff is great, but it attracts the wrong sort of people to I/O.

  15. I'm excited to see the session listings.

  16. O MG! I cannot wait to be part of this occasion, you got me salivating like Pavlov's dog !

  17. I hope that you guys figured a better to register than last year's debacle. I was fortunate to get in, but had many colleagues that weren't as fortunate.

    Also a minimum age limit would be great. Saw at least a dozen kids (maybe 15 years old or less) walking around with their parents basically there to grab free goodies but with no actual business with Google technologies and taking a spot that a professional or a student could have had.

  18. You should introduce quotas to make it fair for people outside the US. I just hope I will hear the news within 10-15 mins as after that I doubt there will be any tickets left.

  19. I haven't been to one yet, but would love to go. I'm in Sydney so will probably be fast asleep when the registration gets announced...fingers crossed they may take pre-registrations at the Google Developer Day which I am attending.

  22. Aminox,
    While I agree with your idea of having a better registration system, your idea about the age limit is just wrong. As a thirteen-year-old who has been programming android apps since he was ten (albeit mediocre ones) and has recently been getting into web development, I am sure there are plenty of kids there who really do want to go for the learning.

  23. Hello, we are a French site based on current Android and the world of Google. We would like to participate in the event Google I / O in order to be closer to the changes proposed by Google. How do I get tickets for the event Google I / O? Can we be invited?

  24. I hope I can get another golden ticket this year. It's becoming increasingly difficult for sincere professionals like myself to get a ticket to this event when others go simply for the swag. While the swag is nice I think it's keeping others from going to the conference. I know I met a husband/wife couple there this year and she was not even in IT. She came along just for the party and swag.

  26. Why not have a GoogleWorld type of event in parallel? It would be something more open to the public and for non-developers, something for people who love and ise Google Products, especially Android. Something for Google cloud users. Invite all the Android hardware manufactures to exhibit. Give the non-developers GoogleWorld conference a keynote of their own. Make it cheaper than GoogleIO ($150?) but not as cheap as exhibits-only pass and still give out something free as a surprise (7" tablet or updated GoogleTV or single
    core phone). Rent out Moscone Center North and South for it! It's going to be big

  27. It's like trying to get a ticket to a finale concert for an iconic band...

    When do the tickets go on sale?

    Wait by the phone

    And......go!

    Absolutely right. I met many folks who went there exclusively for the swag grab. They would bring their really young kids (who spent most of the day playing with their DS sitting next to their dads) or wife/significant other that not one little idea what the conference was all about. These are spots that genuine concerned professionals/students could've had. I was fortunate to get my ticket (in spite of ColdFusion crapping out on me several times) and it would have been disappointing to know that that spot would've gone to someone who couldn't make good use of it.

  30. I can't wait! I just hope I can get a ticket this year.

  31. Really hope I can get my business partner and I a ticket this time.

  32. I am very much excited and waiting too.

  33. There is so much I want to learn this year. So excited!

  34. Please find a better way to organize the sessions this year... and repeat sessions that are popular so nobody gets left out because of seating limitations. I understand that the videos of each session were posted online but being stuck watching a video kind of defeats the purpose of attending the event to begin with.
