Google I/O is an annual developer festival featuring hands-on learning, technical talks, and Googlers on-hand to share their insights on Google products, platforms, APIs, services and anything Google.
Thousands of developers expected to be in attendance when it starts on Wednesday May 17 (ends on May 19) and it is being held at the outdoor Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View California.
All the major sessions will be streamed live and you do not have to miss out on those. We will share the link to the livestream page once it kicks off on Wednesday. Follow us on Twitter to get notified on this.
The schedule for the sessions is already out. And split up into various categories and areas of interest.
You can mark the ones you are interested in – optionally, the app will notify you once that session is starting. The schedule will be updated regularly until the event.
You can also download the app for Android or iOS.
And what’s more, Nigeria is not left out on the series of I/O Extended events happening across the world. The GDG Lagos crew will announce the I/O extended event too soon!
Launchpad Build is an event series aimed at raising awareness, amongst intermediate and expert developers with an existing Web or Android application, on how they can leverage the power of Firebase to improve their productivity. With Firebase, developers are able to quickly develop high-quality applications, grow your user base and earn more money.
Come engage in talks and hands-on codelabs covering Firebase 2.0 with a focus on Analytics, Cloud Messaging, Crash Reporting, Test Lab, Pirate Metrics, Serverless with Firebase, Tensor Flow and much more. Through the Launchpad Build event, developers will get skills and resources necessary to start using Firebase in their applications.
This is a technical event, with multiple sessions on Firebase, facilitated by Googlers and Google Developer Experts from around the world.
(Lagos – 22nd Sep | Nairobi – 26th Sep | Cape Town – 29th Sep)
(This is a limited capacity event and only shortlisted applicants will be contacted by September 16, with all the necessary details.)
Progressive Web Apps are experiences that combine the best of the web and the best of apps. They load quickly, even on flaky networks, can re-engage with users by sending web push notifications, have an icon on the home screen and load as top-level, full screen experiences.
Please join us to learn about the future of the web with Progressive Web Apps, why they are important and how to build and deploy them effectively.
The event will take place in 3 locations in Sub-Saharan Africa:
Nairobi, Kenya: Monday, 15 August 2016
Lagos, Nigeria: Thursday, 18 August 2016
Johannesburg, South Africa: Monday, 22 August 2016
Registration is free, by invitation only, and shortlisted attendees will be contacted in early August.
Last summer we launched Android Experiments: a showcase of creative Android projects, and an open invitation for all developers to submit their own experiments to the gallery. So far we’ve seen some amazing work from the developer community – from live wallpaper, to watch faces, to interesting hacks of the IOIO board – and we want to see more.
Today we announce the Android Experiments I/O Challenge: a chance for your experiment (and you) to go to I/O 2016!
From now through April 13, you can enter by submitting your experiments to the gallery. The top three winners of the contest will receive a trip to this year’s Google I/O, and the five runner-ups will get the new Nexus 6P.
So what makes a good Android Experiment? It’s a project that utilizes the unique capabilities of the Android platform in an innovative way. Here are a few suggestions:
- Creative uses of Android’s new or distinctive features
- Projects that explore how we interact with our devices, in small and big ways
- Unique visual aesthetics
- Open source projects that inspire other developers
- Surprise us – we want to see the amazing things you’re cooking up
All projects on Android Experiments are open source. If you’re not sure where to start take a look on the site gallery, dig in and get inspired.
We can’t wait to see how you’re combining code and creativity! Enter on androidexperiments.com/challenge today.
