We’re pleased to announce that we’ve been selected to attend this year’s Google I/O conference. We’re excited to be part of this great event, and we’ll be manning a Developer Sandbox stand throughout the two day conference.
Google I/O is in San Francisco on 10-11 May and is Google’s biggest and most important annual conference, attracting over 5,000 developers, startups, investors and the like. This year it sold out completely in a record 59 minutes. Google says about I/O:
Google I/O brings together thousands of developers for two days of deep technical content, focused on building the next generation of web, mobile, and enterprise applications with Google and open web technologies such as Android, Google Chrome, Google APIs, Google Web Toolkit, App Engine, and more.
Our spreadsheet application is built entirely using Google Web Toolkit, and Sumwise is great example of a sophisticated desktop-like application that runs entirely in the browser. In addition, Sumwise is hosted in App Engine—Google’s cloud service.
The Developer Sandbox will feature over 100 developers from around the world who have built applications based on Google technologies. These developers will be on hand to demo their apps, talk about how they built them, answer questions, and exchange ideas.
If you’re going to be at Google I/O this year, please come by our stand and say g’day!
Here’s what last year’s Developer Sandbox area looked like.
