Google I/O 2016 is currently on as it started today Wednesday, May 18, 2016 and coming to an end on Friday, May 20, 2016.
This is an event that focuses on developers and developer technologies in the development of web, mobile and enterprise technologies. It involves the discussion of different Google products, what’s new with the different products that are being discussed and the new direction in which they may be taking the product or technology. It also features the announcements of new gadgets that are being developed or even completely developed.
In their own words
Google I/O is our annual developer festival with hands-on learning, technical talks, and a chance to hear more about Google’s latest developer products.
According to the Google I/O 2016 website, at the Google I/O event, you would be able to
- Get hands-on with Google’s latest APIs and tools in the developer sandbox.
- Post up at a workstation to work through technical modules at your own pace. Googlers will be on hand to help you out as you work your way through.
- Swing by office hours with Google experts to ask your burning technical questions and to receive one-on-one help with your projects and apps.
- Stick around after sessions end for a concert in the amphitheatre and to party together After Hours and Google would supply the food, drinks and fun.

If you are attending the event, then good for you. However, for we that we do not have the opportunity of attending the event and still nursing the idea of attending the event one day, we can make do with the Live stream of the event and be able to add more to our current knowledge.
