Google I/O 2012 developer conference extended
Google has announced that its 2012 Google I/O developer conference has been extended from two to three days, and will now take place from 27 to 29 June 2012 at the Moscone Center West in San Francisco. In a Google Code blog post, Product Marketing Manager and Developer Monica Tran says that the company "recently received an unexpected opportunity" to add another day to the event and choose to do so based on feedback from attendees of last year's conference.
In addition to extending the developer event, Tran hints that there will be a new application process for obtaining tickets to the conference – tickets for the 2011 Google I/O event sold out in less than one hour. Tran advises those interested in attending to "brush up on your coding skills", noting that they will "come in handy" when the updated application process opens in February 2012.
As in previous years, the company's next annual developer conference is expected to offer sessions covering a variety of topics, including its open source Android mobile platform, Google TV, development using the Native Client SDK, the Google Web Toolkit (GWT) and the Chrome web browser. Those interested can follow @googleio on Twitter and the Google Developers on Google+ for more updates.
