Google I/O 2016

Google I/O is Google's annual developer conference, where they share the latest products and technologies. Google I/O 2016 was held in Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View, California on May 18-20 and I was fortunate to attend it in person.



More than 7, 000 developers attended the event. Here is a video showing the highlights of the event.



This year's I/O was different from past year's I/O as the venue is an open area. There has been a lot of complaints here and there but personally, I was still able to enjoy the experience. I have attended several sessions and learned a lot of new and interesting stuff. It was also great to meet friends you haven't seen in a while and meet new friends.

If you are unable to attend I/O in person, you can watch all the session videos in this playlist from Google Developers. You can also try the codelabs at https://codelabs.developers.google.com/io2016.



GDG Philippines will also be bringing the I/O experience to different cities through the Google I/O 2016 Extended Roadshow, a series of talks and workshops to help professional and student developers deep dive in the new technologies announced during Google I/O 2016.
