The Quick Guide to Watching Google I/O 2016

 

Every year since its first event in 2008, Google has organized “Google I/O” as a large software developer-focused conference in San Francisco, California. Google I/O features highly technical, in-depth sessions and demos focused on building web, mobile, and enterprise applications with Google and open web and mobile technologies such as Android, Chrome, Chrome OS, Google Cloud Platform Google APIs, Google Web Toolkit, Firebase and much more.

This year is no different. Google I/O 2016 is a three-day event running from May 18th to the 20th with tons of sessions on each of them, cutting across multiple platforms, products and innovations.

Many of the sessions [view schedule] will be streamed live and you can join in by going to https://events.google.com/io2016/.

Use the filter button on the far right to drill-down to the kind of sessions you are interested in.

Here’s a link to see a list of sessions which will be streamed live.

There’s also a “+” button beside each session – if you want to be notified when the session starts. So you don’t have to stick around all through waiting. Awesome!

All other sessions are being recorded and will be made available in the coming weeks on the Google Developers Channel on YouTube.

You can also follow the hashtag #io16 on Twitter

In June, the GDGLagos will be hosting its I/O Extended Event to learn more, try out and experiment based on the content from this I/O event. We will be sure to let you know once everything is set for this event.

In the meantime, join the livestream!
