Google I/O recap
While I wasn’t at the Google Developer’s Conference this week in a Fez-o-rama capacity I did indeed wear my Android Fez there. What can I say, it is a comfortable hat and seemed to be the appropriate fez to don. Just ask the Bug Droid over there. The conference took place at the Moscone Center in San Francisco May 10th and 11th and was attended by 5000 people that were lucky enough to grab tickets in the 59 minutes it took to sell out. Beyond the Keynotes and breakout sessions there were tech demos everywhere covering hardware, software and even experimental technologies. Needless to say the level of tech nerdery was amazing. I got to interact with robots, try out the latest in Android phones and tablets and have my head packed full of technical knowledge. Needless to say, Google puts on one hell of a conference! There were all sorts of cool things to check out, the people were amazingly nice and there was so much to take in. I learned quite a bit while there, which doesn’t come as a big surprise considering my level of experience, but what really caught me off guard was how inspired I was about the new stuff in fields I’m not currently working in. Chrome OS was really compelling and I have to say I’m excited to see where Google TV is headed. I strongly suggest you check out some of the keynotes and sessions if you are interested in this sort of thing. All of them are on YouTube including the After Party concert by Jane’s Addiction. Finally I had to share this slide from the Android Pro-tips session. Doesn’t he look dapper.
