One of the biggest developer festivals is just around the corner, and just down the bay - it's time again for Google I/O. That said, if you’re coming into town for Google I/O consider taking a mini-vacay and spending a few days in San Francisco. In the meantime, here are the sessions we’re looking forward 2 @ Google I/O:
Assisting the Driver: From Android Phones to Android Cars, Wednesday, May 17 @ 2 p.m.
In this session led by Yao Chen and Chen Xiao, developers will discover how better evolve their apps to the automotive platform, with the goal of making the Android experience a seamless transition from phone to car. Just think with Android already in the car, does that mean it’s only a matter of time before it makes it into the driver’s seat?
The Future of Fabric: Building Momentum at Google, Thursday, May 17 @ 10:30 a.m.
In this session, James Tamplin, Timothy Jordon, Rich Paret, and Jason Titus will discuss one of Google’s newest acquisitions, Fabric, a mobile development platform (formerly of Twitter), the updates they’re making and how they plan to use it.
Supercharged Live, Thursday, May 17 @ 1:30 p.m.
Are a subscriber to Supercharged? Well, here’s your chance to see Paul Lewis and Surma build live, right in front of your eyes. Although they haven’t released any details on what they will be building, if it’s like any of their other shows, it will be jammed packed full of tips.
Designing Screen Interfaces for VR, Friday May 19 @ 11:30 a.m.
We’re pretty interested in VR here @ SCH which is why we’re especially looking forward to this session. Led by Chris McKenzie and Adam Glazier, this session prompts designers to think of VR outside of the traditional 3D format and to re-think how we interact with screens and content.
BTW - it’s the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love, and we’re running some great specials at Stanford Court Hotel, from April 8 - August 20. That’s even more excuse to stop by SCH after Google I/O.
