Google I/O Developer Event

Google announced the new Two-Day Google I/O Event for Developers.

Google I/O, a two-day, in-depth gathering for developers to share knowledge about Google's own developer products and web application development in general.
Google I/O will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco on Wednesday, May 28th, and Thursday, May 29th, 2008.
"It's an incredibly exciting time to be a web developer, with so many powerful APIs, open distribution platforms, and development tools becoming available for easy and often free consumption," said Vic Gundotra, vice president of engineering for developer products at Google. "As a community, developers are shaping the future of the web, putting foundations in place now that future generations of users won't be able to imagine living without. Google's developer events are a place for developers to celebrate this moment, collaborate with each other, and learn about faster and better paths to successful web applications and a better web."

Google I/O will include a mix of practical, hands-on advice for building web apps as well as opportunities to learn about and discuss emerging trends. Sessions with top Google engineers will cover tools developed both inside and outside Google, including yet to be announced initiatives designed to move the web forward.

Five simultaneous topic areas will cover:

-- AJAX & JavaScript: AJAX and JavaScript continue to capture the imagination of web developers. These sessions focus on tools and techniques of client-side code, and how to use them to make serious applications quickly and easily.

-- APIs & Tools: Development tools for the web are evolving. Product APIs allow integration and extension of web applications. Tools like the Google Web Toolkit(TM) provide a whole new way to improve performance and compatibility.

-- Social: The web is an inherently social place. A new wave of APIs and frameworks, including OpenSocial, are opening up interesting ways to interact with people through applications.

-- Mobile: Mobile devices are blurring the lines between handset developers and web developers, opening up interesting opportunities for applications that span multiple platforms. We'll take a look at how developers can use technologies such as Android(TM) and Mobile Gears to build applications on the mobile web.

-- Maps & Geo: Since the introduction of the Google Maps(TM) API in 2005, geo and map applications have been one of the most interesting phenomena on the web. These sessions focus on the many aspects of geo applications, from KML to the Google Maps API and more.

The sessions will allow attendees to learn first-hand from Google engineers like Mark Lucovsky, Guido van Rossum, David Glazer, Alex Martelli, Steve Souders, Dion Almaer, Jeff Dean, Chris DiBona, Josh Bloch, and many more leaders in the field of development.

Tickets are $400 for developers, with discounts available for students.
