We were thrilled by the overall positive feedback we received after last year's I/O, but one thing we heard over and over again (in surveys and by word of mouth during the conference): developers wanted more Google Maps and Earth content. That's why I'm excited to share that our Geo tools will have a greater presence at this year's Google I/O, with its own session track and pod within the Developer Sandbox.
Here's just a partial list of Geo sessions that are already listed on the I/O website:
- Unleash your map data: Cloud computing for geospatial applications
- Map once, map anywhere: Developing geospatial applications for both desktop and mobile
- Moving beyond markers: Advanced Maps API customization
- The World in 3D: Adding a new dimension to your geospatial applications
Over the next couple of months, we'll be adding additional Geo sessions and many more Geo Developer Sandbox participants to the I/O website. For updates on when new content is added, follow @googleio on Twitter.
Registration for Google I/O (at the early bird rate of $400) is open as of today. We hope to see the Geo Developer community in May!
