If you've got nothing to do after you pick up your badge, Code the Road is on today, across the road from 2pm!
 
#CodetheRoad launches today. In honor of our tenth anniversary, we’ve kitted out a 1959 GM tour bus with the latest in mapping technology. Over the course of the next month, we’ll be visiting customers like +Lyft and +Harley-Davidson, hosting developer meetups and introducing you to some cool animal pals. Learn more about #CodetheRoad and when it may visit your city here:

Nice use of the Maps API to power a visualisation backed by a Google Spreadsheet: http://www.cfr.org/interactives/GH_Vaccine_Map/#map

Great to be arguing as an industry for surveillance reform.  It really is time for action and the US needs to lead the way.

It's happening!
 
Only 126 days until the 7th annual Google I/O, when we come together with amazing developers like you to talk about what's next. On June 25-26, 2014, we’ll be broadcasting live from Moscone West. You can join us in person in San Francisco or remotely, via a live stream and through I/O Extended community events around the world. 

More details to come next month, including registration info. In the meantime, you can check out highlights from last year at https://developers.google.com/events/io/

Also, quick note for those who want to join in person: this year we’re making some changes to registration, so you won’t need to scramble the second registration opens. We'll be implementing a new system, where you can submit your interest to attend Google I/O 2014. Successful applicants will then be randomly selected and notified shortly thereafter. We’ll be following up with more details from +GoogleDevelopers, so stay tuned.
Google I/O 2013 brings together thousands of developers for three days of deep technical content focused on building the next generation of web, mobile, and enterprise applications with Google and open web technologies such as Android, Google Chrome, Google APIs, Google Web Toolkit, App Engine, and more.

Google Developers originally shared to I/O:
 
We've made the Google I/O 2015 codelabs app publicly available for all #io15 participants in person, and attendees worldwide.

Codelabs provide a hands-on, guided tutorial experience illustrating how to build modern mobile and web applications using the latest Google APIs, tools and developer technologies. If you're here at Moscone, we're excited for you to try this out after the keynote on level 2.
Google Codelabs for developers staying on the cutting edge.

In the newest Android DevByte, hear from +Ankur Kotwal about the developer highlights of Android 5.0 Lollipop. In this video, he shares how to make your apps more beautiful with the introduction of Material Design, run faster with Android Runtime (ART), and be more power efficient with Project Volta. Sweet.

Google has a Rubik's Cube doodle today, and I solved it in the only way I know how.
