Google I/O 2013

Google has just dropped word that the Google I/O 2013 developer conference will be May 15-17 at Moscone West in San Francisco. 

While the location is the same, the May date shifts the conference back to earlier in the year than we saw in 2012, which moved the event to the end of June. (It also puts it the week before the spring CTIA event, which will be in Las Vegas.)

Highlights of the 2012 conference included the unveiling of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the addition of movies, TV shows and magazines to the Google Play Store, the introduction of the Nexus 7 tablet, the first look at the semi-defunct Nexus Q, and a little skydiving with Google's Project Glass.

The 2012 conference sold out in a mere 28 minutes -- ridiculously fast. Gundotra wrote that registration details for the 2013 conference will be announced in February.

Hit the break for a look back at Google I/O 2012.

Google I/O 2013 set for May 15-17


How likely is there to be a new nexus 7 tablet launch at google I/O, I would like to own the tablet but I would prefer to hold off on tђat purchase if a new model with improved hardware specs is launching in just a few short months.

Personally i think that Google wants to take some focus away from tablets and phones, maybe the rumors about the Asus Google TV device are true.

We may not even see a new major revision or version of Android.

I'm considering going this year, if it can get the wife's signature. I'm still learning how to code for Android (getting decent at it) and just starting to develop my app, so it could be an awesome learning experience.

I love hearing people say this. :)

We mostly cover the shiny parts of Google I/O -- but the dev tracks are really the important part. Hope you make it!

I always get a bit sad when i hear the shoutout to developers and it seems like only 10-20% of the audience actually respond. :(

I have been doing some Android development for my job over the past two years. I've already got the wife and boss's (they are different people but same responsibilities ;)) ok to go this year. Here's to hoping the ticket sales aren't like the Nexus 4 sales, near impossible to purchase.

My wife has stated more than once that I will be like a kid in a technical, educational candy store at Google I/O. :) One can never learn too much about any kind of development language.

Keep in mind for such events tickets are usually sold out in matter of hours if not minutes, so you need to prepare yourself for form race on website to get one and keep on track when sells starts.

Also keep in mind that some sessions are live streamed and all of them lands on YouTube eventually, so if you not make it you can still participate :)
