Google I/O Sessions Revealed – Yep, There is a Ton of Android Stuff

Google’s developer conference, better known as Google I/O, is just over a month away and the buzz is already starting to mount. To get us in the spirit (not that we weren’t already), Google released the sessions list for all 3 days, and of course, the list includes a bunch of Android topics. There are least 15 Android-specific sessions going down, some of which include topics like smoothing UIs, bettering apps, a fireside chat with the Android team (always a must see), and how to market apps in Google Play.

Other topics that may come out during keynotes or throughout the week would be the first look at Jelly Bean, the newly expanded Nexus program, more Google TV products, and maybe even advanced Android at Home projects. With Google adding on a 3rd day, it should be one hell of a week.

Tickets may have sold out, but Tim and I will be on hand to bring it all to you. Also, don’t forget that Google streams most of the action live these days, so you should be able to catch most of the fun via computer.

    “first look at jelly bean” I wouldn’t get your hopes up.

    • RedPandaAlex

      Oh come on, they announced ICS last year.

      And by “announced,” I mean they went on stage, confirmed that it existed, and quickly changed the subject.

        I only say that because it would be totally sweet to see it, but knowing my luck they won’t say anything.

        I wonder if my gNex will finally have 4.0.4 OTA download ready by this time. Not that i am running BAMF but i like to have stock return backups saved just in case.

          If it’s the VZW model, don’t count on it.

    Cannot wait for the Back-ending Your Android App with Google App Engine replay. I’ve been wanting to get a tutorial on that for a while.

  • Inquizitor

    I’m still so disappointed that the tickets were outrageously expensive this year. God I wish I could go…

    • jathak

      How are they outrageously expensive? WWDC costs $1599 and Adobe MAX ranges between $1300 and $1700. The $450 price combined with the giveaways encouraged non-developers to go, which takes away tickets from developers. I’m a student, so I got the academic price, but I would have gladly paid full price to go.

    • kevinc

      umm Google I/O is geared toward professional developers, not android users too cheap to buy 99c apps.

      I/O is waaaayyy cheaper than most developer conferences.

      • Inquizitor

        Right, and big conferences like these are still pricey for students who want to get into development but have no income.

  • RedPandaAlex

    Yeah… not getting any work done those days.
