In case you missed it, we recently officially announced that Google I/O 2015 will take place on May 28 & 29 (http://goo.gl/TQHoQ9).
We know not everyone can make it all the way to San Francisco, so to bring I/O into local communities worldwide, we have an event series called I/O Extended. The program aims to help developers enjoy the keynote and various sessions at I/O together through a live stream to encourage collaboration and build new connections. I/O Extended events often include unique developer activities, such as hackathons, code labs, and demos. These events are organized by Google Developer Groups (GDGs), Student Ambassadors, and local developers.
In 2014, there were roughly 600 Extended events in 90+ countries around the world (http://goo.gl/qUhQSm)! To get a feel for the I/O Extended experience, here’s a recap of the best moments of 2014: http://goo.gl/jM1gI3. We’re excited to see the developer community join together once again in 2015 to experience I/O from every corner of the globe.
If you want to organize an event:
-- Read through the Organizer Guide (http://goo.gl/rYSkMx) and register your event on the I/O website (http://goo.gl/qPI7nG). Note: If you’re a GDG, you should register your Extended event via the DevSite instead (http://developers.google.com/events).
If you want to attend an event:
