Can’t Make It To Google I/O In Person, Google Has You Covered With I/O Live

io-live-logoWow, this is something that I would have thought Google would have thought of already. In any case if you can’t make it out to San Francisco you can still get all the important info from Google’s highly anticipated and highly attended Google I/O event. This is a pretty shrewd move by Google though as they expand into so many other different areas like the cloud and mobile where third party app development will be critical. If you didn’t get a ticket to Google I/O don’t worry, they did sell out in just 59 minutes.

If you weren’t one of the lucky one’s then Google has you covered this year. All you have to do is visit www.google.com/io on May 10-11  and from the comforts of your own home, office or anywhere you have a reliable Internet connection for I/O Live.

I/O Live will allow you to view all the keynotes, sessions and the Developer Sandbox (some in real time).  Starting on May 10, the Google I/O homepage will become the I/O Live dashboard, where you can:

  • Watch livestream video feeds from our two largest session rooms from 9:00 a.m PST to 6:00 p.m. PST during both days of the conference. This will include streaming of the keynotes, as in years past, as well as—new for 2011—the addition of sessions from Android and Chrome. We’ll also aim to post HD video recordings from sessions that are not livestreamed within 24 hours.

  • Read captions from the livestreamed sessions in real-time. Plus, to make sure all our content is accessible, all remaining videos will also be captioned. For international developers, captions will be machine translated to all languages that are supported by Google Translate.
  • Be one of the first to know by getting your news direct from the source. The latest announcements and news will be added to our I/O Live dashboard in real-time.
  • Submit your questions to our Sandbox developers. We’ll post answers for the questions with the most votes.
