Google I/O 2014

After so many years, I was finally able to attend Google I/O. Google I/O 2014 was held from June 25-26, 2014 at Moscone West in San Francisco, California.

It feels great watching the keynote live. If you haven't seen it yet, you can watch the Google I/O 2014 Keynote video below:



There were a lot of announcements during the keynote: Material Design, Android L Developer PreviewAndroid Wear, Android Auto, Android TV, Google Fit, Google Play Services 5.0, and many more. They also announced the launch of LG G Watch and Samung Gear Live on July 7 and the upcoming release of Moto 360 in the next months. At the end of the keynote, every attendee was given a Cardboard.

After the keynote, many sessions and workshops are happening at the same time. It was so hard to choose where to go. I attended mostly the 'Box Talks and roam around in the Sandbox (Design/Develop/Distribute) areas because these won't be recorded. I'll just watch the other sessions from the I/O website.

It was a truly great experience to be a part of Google I/O. I learned a lot of things and met new friends. I'm feeling inspired and looking forward to building new stuff based from what I learned in I/O.
