Google I/O 2008

Google I/O (simply I/O) is an annual developer conference held by Google in San Francisco, California. I/O showcases technical in-depth sessions focused on building web, mobile, and enterprise applications with Google and open sources such as Android, Chrome and Chrome OS, APIs, Google Web Toolkit, App Engine, and more.

I/O was inaugurated in 2008, and is organized by the executive team. "I/O" stands for input/output, as well as the slogan "Innovation in the Open".[2] The event's format is similar to Google Developer Day.

None Sundar Pichai announced on Google+ that I/O held at Shoreline instead of Moscone. Attendees were given sunglasses and sunscreen due to the amphitheater's outside conditions. Many attendees were burnt, talks were relatively short, and clocking in at 111 minutes was on of the shortest.

Instant Apps is a code path that downloads a part of an app instead of accessing a web app. This was exampled with the B&H web app. As of August 2016, the feature is still in development

Firebase, a mobile application platform, now adds storage, reporting and analytics. [18][19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26][27][28][29][30][31][32][33]
