For two days next week, developers and press will converge on the Moscone Center in San Francisco for the second annual Google I/O Developer's Conference. I will be covering the conference as a member of both groups. This year the conference is broken out into 8 tracks:
- Ajax + Data APIs
- Google Web Toolkit
- App Engine
- Tech Talk
I'll probably be spending most of my time in the Mobile track, but some of the other talks and press events look interesting so I'll be skipping around a bit.
In addition, there will be a hall for what Google calls the "Developer Sandbox":
The Developer Sandbox is a new addition to Google I/O. Comprised of "pods" - demo station areas grouped by product theme - the Sandbox will feature a wide range of developers who have built applications based on technologies and products featured at Google I/O. Representing large and small companies, individual developers, and a diverse group of apps, these developers will be on hand at the Sandbox to demo their apps, answer questions, exchange ideas, and meet you in person. Members of the Google product and engineering teams will also be on hand.
