Better get there early...
Google Developers originally shared to I/O:
 
Wondering what you’ll get from #ATAP at Google IO? A little badass. Beautiful. Tech and human. Work and love. ATAP.

Optimized for speed. Because we are, well, impatient. And someone should be. The engines on Project Ara are revved. We’re on the road to Puerto Rico. Creating the hardware equivalent of the software app ecosystem sometimes feels a little Dakar Rally, sometimes a little Le Mans. Fast. Difficult. Worth it. Speaking of fast… We’ll debut our newest Spotlight Story ‘Fast-and-Furious’ style. Justin Lin’s live action short goes live at I/O. In full 360 with 3D soundsphere. Whaaaat? Exactly. And wearables that we hope will blow your socks off. (We mean this more literally than you might think…) Our goal: break the tension between the ever-shrinking screen sizes necessary to make electronics wearable and our ability to have rich interactions with them. Why can’t you have both? We like to build new things. Sometimes seemingly impossible things. We can build them faster together.

See you at the #ATAPGarage and check out our Session on May 29th @ 9AM.

Download the Google I/O 2015 Android app! #io15  

Following the release of the I/O schedule last week (https://goo.gl/r6tlfc) on the I/O web app (https://goo.gl/xk3NcN), you can now also customize your schedule and plan your I/O experience via the Android app: https://goo.gl/yLE3bF

Feel free to switch back and forth between the I/O web app and the I/O Android app -- your schedule will always sync between the two. To remain even more in sync, you can enable the Google Calendar integration in the Android app settings to see your I/O schedule alongside your personal events, all in one place.  

In addition to the schedule, the I/O’15 Android app includes the agenda, a video library from past I/Os and an overview of the social conversations happening about the conference on both Google+ and Twitter. By indicating if you’ll be attending in-person or remotely, the app shows you only the content that’s relevant to you - this means onsite attendees are offered facilitated pre-event WiFi configuration and can browse the venue map, while the remote experience shows live streamed content (with closed captions and Cast support).  

New this year: inspired by Google Now, the Explore screen aggregates similar content in cards. We hope this will make it even easier for you to find interesting events to add to your schedule.

Every year we build and open source the I/O mobile app with the goal of providing the developer community with a canonical example of a well designed Android app. This year our development applies Android best practices across testing, architecture, and UI, as well as a full implementation of the material design library. More details about the open source to come soon!

The app release to all users on Google Play might take up to 24 hours, so check back in soon if you’re not seeing it yet.

There are two new episodes available from the Android Developers Backstage podcast:

In Episode 26, +Chet Haase and +Tor Norbye are joined by +Gustavo Moura from the Google Fit team. They talk about the Google Fit app, but also about the GMS Core and REST APIs that enable that application and any other application that wants to take advantage of the sensor data that those APIs provide.

In Episode 27, Tor and Chet are joined by... nobody. Instead, they just talk among themselves about tools. From Android Studio to performance debugging tools to IDE shortcuts to memory analysis tools to Lint rules to animation debugging tools and back to Android Studio, they talk about lots of tools and then some.

Concrete + anaerobic bacteria whose spores live for decades + food which, when eaten by the bacteria, results in them forming limestone = self-healing concrete
