About this event

GDG Melbourne will be hosting a I/O Extended event to recap all of the major announcements from Google I/O and talk about what's new in the Google world.  I/O is Google's annual developer conference, where new products and API’s are announced and technology showcased.  I/O also features a large number of technical in sessions focused on building products with Google's technologies such as Android, Google Cloud and Tensorflow.

I/O can be a busy time with a bewildering array of product announcements, new technologies and updates to make sense of.  GDG Melbourne will bring together expert developers to help you cut through the hype and understand what's important and what's not.  We will be having presentations focused on what's new in Android, Firebase, IOT and ML and a recap of the ‘IO experience’ by an I/O attendee.

Brendan will talk about his experience attending IO.  Find out what it was like to be there ‘on the ground’ during the keynote, hear about the best and worst technical presentations and what the after-parties were like!
