Google I/O 2015 to be held May 28th and May 29th in San Francisco



Google's annual conference for developers, Google I/O, will be held this year on May 28th and May 29th in San Francisco. The dates were announced via a tweet by Google Senior VP Sundar Pichai. As usual, the venue will be the Moscone Center West. Registration for the two-day event will begin on March 17th at 9am PDT and will end March 19th at 5pm PDT.

Last year, Google started a lottery system after the conference sold out in 49 minutes in 2013 and 30 minutes the year before. We expect to see a similar system instituted this year. While we don't have pricing information for Google I/O 2015, last year the tickets were priced at $900 for both days. Teachers were offered two-day tickets at a special rate of $300.

If you can't make it to San Francisco, Google usually offers a fantastic free app every year. Last year's Google I/O app presented free streaming video of some of the sessions. It also allowed you to quickly see the feedback on social media after announcements were made. You can also attend an I/O Extended event near you and watch the conference live-streamed with other developers.

At last year's Google I/O, an early developer build of Android "L" was introduced along with some Android Wear smartwatches. What will be unveiled this year?

Do they have something to offer? Android evolved to the highest state with KK and L. There probably won't be coming any huge 'wow' update to phone/tablet. They will try to play with smart watches but I have the feeling Android is in blind tunel... they also promised quicker oems updates...boooooh-where are they? Google gonna fall hard within 5 years. ...trust me.

We've been hearing that for 5 years or more.
