Google has announced the dates for this year’s I/O. The developer-centric conference will take place on the 28th and 29th of May at the Moscone Centre in San Francisco.
Last year’s I/O was where we got to see the likes of a redesigned Android i.e. Material Design, Android Auto, Android Wear and Android TV. We sure are curious to see what will be showcased at this year’s I/O and can’t wait to see how far Project Ara, Google’s attempt at a modularized smartphone, is. Will Tony Fadell let us know how his project to redesign Google Glass is coming along? Where is Nest and the smart home in a world that is soon going to be shaped by the Internet of Things? What of the next point release of Android 5 with bug fixes and minor add-ons? Will Android Wear advance to the next level? We’ll find out soon enough.
For those interested in being part of the live audience in California, registrations open on the 27th of March. We are not sure at this point if the selection process for attendees will be as random as it was last year. You can keep an eye on developments on that front and eventual registration on the event’s page.
The announced date means that I/O is back to its traditional May scheduling since last year things changed a bit with it being moved to end of June.
