With the announcement of Android tablets coming in the near future, Google’s annual developer conference (Google I/O 2011 ) on May 10 and 11 sold out under an hour Monday morning. In 2010, the conference actually took 50 days to sell out. Technology experts believe that this may be due to the interest in Google’s Android and Chrome, especially since the announcement of Android tablets.
Tickets for Google I/O 2011, the annual developer conference, went on sale at 9 a.m. Google VP Vic Gundotra tweeted 59 minutes later that the tickets were sold out. In 2010 the conference took 50 days to sell out, and in 2009 took 90 days.
Vic Gundotra, VP Engineering at Google explains in a blog post “The focus of I/O 2011 will be all about the cloud, and feature the latest Google products and technologies including Android, Google Chrome, App Engine, Google Web Toolkit and Google APIs. There will be many opportunities to meet members of Google’s engineering teams and take deep dives into the technologies with more than 100 technical sessions, roundtables and more. The Developer Sandbox, which we introduced at I/O 2009, will be back, featuring developers from more than 100 companies to demo their apps, share their experiences and exchange ideas.”
