Woohoo! I better get back to work, we have a show to put on.
 
Exciting news: we’re only 18 weeks away from Google I/O! 2016 is going to be a special year for us -- we held our first developer day 10 years ago at the Googleplex. To celebrate our 10th anniversary of developer gatherings, we’ll be hosting I/O in our backyard at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA from May 18th - 20th. We’ll have 3 full days together to dive deep into developer content, code labs, and more. If you can’t make it in person, you can still join us via I/O Live and through an I/O Extended event in your local community. Stay tuned to #io16 and +GoogleDevelopers in the coming weeks for more details.

Fingers crossed I get to go again, I really enjoyed the 3 day format when you did it a few years ago.

Watching the Heroes Of The Storm finals at the same time as StarCraft 2 is too hard. Need picture-in-picture mode on Chromecast #blizzcon

I read "escorts" there for a second, make me quite do a double take.

If you're in Sydney on Saturday, come along to the GDG DevFest. Its packed with great speakers and equally great content!
 
We only have 1 week remaining before our Devfest, we still have a few tickets left. Once we reach our limit there won't be any further tickets available so get them while you still can.

+Dan Galpin is our keynote speaker, he doesn't make it to Australia very often and I believe this may be his only Sydney speaking event. 

Tickets cost $12, and lunch and refreshments will be provided. Check the website for the full details on the sessions and workshops we'll be running.

Please be good! I'm excited that Star Wars is back but I'm cautiously optimistic that bringing it back is a good thing.  FWIW, I enjoyed much (not all) of the new trilogy but it definitely lacked something intangible compared to the original trilogy.

Just go ahead and say it Ankur. It had a little bit too much Jar Jar.
