Google I/O session schedule goes live, reveals streamlined keynote

Nothing says “we’re getting closer to the spectacle that is Google I/O” like Google posting the official session schedule for the annual developers’ conference online. That’s exactly what Google did this morning, and there are a couple of interesting things to note. For starters, there’s only one keynote this year. Google used to hold two keynotes — one for Android and one for other stuff — but this year it’s cramming all it can into a three hour block of Googley goodness.

Aside from the usually-exciting keynote, there are six main session tracks you can get yourself on. These include Android, Chrome (and web apps), Google+, Google Cloud Platform, Google Maps and YouTube. Bonuses will include Google Wallet, Google Glass, Google Ads, and Knowledge graph. You’ll also get a smattering of “tech talks” that will dive into different miscellaneous topics. These sessions are all in addition to the various code labs, office hours and other cool goings-on at the Moscone Center that week.

As usual, Google will be live-streaming various elements of the conference, including the aforementioned keynote and several of the sessions. And if past years are anything to go by, nearly all of the sessions should be posted on YouTube shortly following the event. Head to Google’s site for the full rundown and start mapping out your quest to becoming a better developer.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. More evidence of an uninteresting not-key-lime-pie android update. I’m pissed.

    1. Does it matter what the code name/number is?

      1. It matters if it means a minor update. 4.2 was mostly uninteresting, wasn’t it?

        1. 4.2 added a lot of new features that those of us still on 4.1.2 are dying to have. I wouldn’t say it was uninteresting at all, but that’s just me.

          1. Not fully uninteresting, but would it be IO worthy? If 4.3 contains the rumored Babel then all is good. That is really all I want.

          2. Babel is a Google App, they can release it whenever they want :-

          3. Photospheres. Multiuser on tablets. What else?

          4. i’m not going to lie when is switched from 4.1 to 4.2 nothing really stood out to me.

        2. If you have a nexus it mattered. the 4.1 to 4.2 update was huge. but on skinned devices…meh

    2. Do you require a major update every year to stay happy?

        1. I don’t really see how they can make the UI look that much different than it is now. I just hope they add huge performance improvements to Jellybean 4.3.

    1. It’s a punishment for a vertical video :D

      1. I have a narcissistic attitude against people that take vertical videos. It’s a sickness.

  2. where did you see google glass, and google wallet??

    1. There was an option to expand the list.

  3. Looking forward to Key Lime Pie at bacon and egg 13.

    1. Rumor is we won’t be seeing KLP. We’ll get 4.3 Jelly Bean.

      1. Google releases new evolutionary versions of Android with Nexus handsets, since the Nexus device’s don’t get uncovered until fall than that’s probably when Key lime Pie will make an appearance. Just look at the past releases, Gingerbread with Galaxy S (Google IO), ICS with Galaxy Nexus (fall), although they did release Jelly bean at Google IO without a new Nexus smartphone last year but they did introduced the Nexus 7 at Google IO than a newer version of Jelly bean with the Nexus 4/Nexus 10 in the fall. So from this i would think they would release a small incremental update with a newer Nexus 7 than release Key lime pie in the fall with the other Nexus handsets.

  4. When’s this key note? I can’t seem to find it :(

  5. Have fun, developers. The general people do not understand the importance of this event. But i hope you learn some cool stuff. If they do not release any new versions of android, people will get really annoyed. But they don’t understand this is geared to devs.

  6. Oh spoiled Phandroids … I/O is about a lot more than the next version of Android or the next Nexus device. People fail to remember that it’s a developer conference, not CES.
