Google To Hold Web 2.0 Developer Event

Google says its I/O event in San Francisco will cover faster and better paths to developing successful Web applications.

Google on Tuesday said it will hold a developer event in May covering a variety of topics on Web 2.0 application development.

Called Google I/O, the two-day event will be held May 28-29 at Moscone Center in San Francisco. Along with covering topics in application development in general, Google engineers will also discuss the company's developer products.

"As a community, developers are shaping the future of the Web, putting foundations in place now that future generations of users won't be able to imagine living without," Vic Gundotra, VP of engineering for developer products at Google, said in a statement. "Google's developer events are a place for developers to celebrate this moment, collaborate with each other, and learn about faster and better paths to successful Web applications and a better Web."

Among the topic areas Google plans to cover are tools and techniques related to Ajax and JavaScript, both used in building user interfaces for Web 2.0 applications. In addition, the company is expected to discuss tools available for tapping into Web application programming interfaces. Google will also cover its toolkit during this session.

Other topics include the new wave of APIs and frameworks, such as OpenSocial, for building applications to tap into social networks. On the mobile side, Google engineers will tackle technologies such as Android and Mobile Gears for building applications on the mobile Web.

Finally, Google plans to cover geo and map applications, focusing on technologies ranging from keyhole markup language to Google Maps API. KML is an XML file format for managing the display of 3-D geospatial data.

Google engineers conducting the sessions include Mark Lucovsky, Guido van Rossum, David Glazer, Alex Martelli, Steve Souders, Dion Almaer, Jeff Dean, Chris DiBona, and Josh Bloch. Tickets are $400 for developers, with discounts available for students.
