Today, I took the day off work and went into town to participate in Google I/O Extended Baltimore. Google I/O, of course, is a huge event out in California with about 7,000 people attending. Google I/O Extended is a series of related events all over the world. The event in Sri Lanka had over 2,000 people. Here in Baltimore, ours was held at AOL/Advertising.com on Brewer’s Hill. Ossum!
We had a slate of live talks in the morning:
- Chris Pino, “Entrepreneurial and Technical Challenges in the Personal Computer Age”
- Will Gee, BaltiVirtual, “Beyond ‘The Year of VR'”
- Scott Schopman, OrderUp, “Taking Mobile Testing to the Cloud with Google Cloud Test Lab”
- Danny Blue, LiveSafe, “Intro to Angular 2”
Following a nice lunch, we watched the Keynote live from California on streaming video.
Afterwards, there were VR demos from BaltiVirtual
It was a fun day! If you can’t make it to Google I/O next year, look for the Google I/O Extended event in your area!
