Google is hosting a live event a few days after I/O to tell us more about an upcoming product! We don't know what it is yet, but it will be announced during I/O! Come join us for the event, and stick around after as we recap the highlights, talk more about I/O, and generally geek out about all things Google.

The exact topic and speakers have not been announced, but they will be some of the same speakers from I/O, probably experts on this new product. We'll update the details on this event as we learn more.

The live stream starts at 5PM Central time, but it will last two hours, so feel free to join whenever you can. Starting around 7, we will recap the event for those that come later, and brainstorm ways we might be able to use it, either as developers, or just as users!

We will also have a few attendees who went to I/O share what they learned, and give you an overview of what went on at the event.

Please RSVP for this meetup on the official Meetup page:

The upcoming Android M release changes the way permissions are granted and handled in the system, with the goal of a more fluid experience and more refined user control. While this is a good thing, it also puts a larger burden on app developers creating new apps as well as authors of legacy apps. This presentation, from Larry Schiefer of HIQES, will take a look at the basics of permissions, the impact to the user and the impact to you, the developer.

Larry Schiefer is the CTO and co-founder of HIQES LLC, creators of mobile applications, mobile platforms and embedded system software. Larry is a recognized Google Developer Expert (GDE) for Android, an avid mobile/embedded software developer, has spoken several times at AnDevCon, and has provided face to face and recorded developer training on Android's internals, app development and security.
