Google I/O is one of the biggest developer conferences held by Google every year, wherein they announce upcoming changes to Google services and how developers should react in order to prepare themselves for these changes. Google I/O 2019 is scheduled to begin on May 7, 2019 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California (USA), and now, Google has posted the initial schedule for the conference.
As expected, I/O 2019 will kick off with the main Google keynote at 10AM PDT, and will be hosted by key Google executives, including Mr. Sundar Pichai, in all likelihood. As it does every year, this event will provide an overview of upcoming changes to Google products and services, including Android and its next version, Android Q. This event will be livestreamed, so you won’t be missing out on too much if you did not manage to score a ticket.
This will be followed up by the Developer Keynote which will focus on finer intricacies than what would be possible in the main keynote. After that, there are sessions scheduled for Android [What’s new in Android], Gaming, Material Design, Chrome, Google Assistant, Machine Learning and AI. There’s also sessions on Android Q’s Dark Mode [Moving Away from the Light with Android Q], Google Coral [Introducing Google Coral: Building On-Device AI], Google Stadia [Stadia Streaming Tech: A Deep Dive], AR for Google Maps [Developing the First AR Experience for Google Maps], Linux on Chrome OS [Linux for Chromebooks: Secure Development], and so much more.
Google states that more events will be added into this schedule. Exact times, locations, speakers and a livestream filter will also be added closer to the I/O. The timings mentioned are in PDT, but we noticed that the calendar overview automatically adjusted to our system timezone (which might be a bug).
Stay tuned for exhaustive coverage of Google I/O 2019!
