My wife and are checked into our hotel in San Francisco. Tomorrow begins Google I/O 2009 at the Moscone Center West in San Francisco. I’m quite looking forward to two days of Google Developer Goodness. I’m hoping that we’ll learn about a lot of great new updates to Google APIs and developer tools, and of course, I haven’t forgotten about my prediction that Google Chrome will get Extensions at Google I/O. I’m a little more cautious about saying that for sure, but I’m still pretty optimistic that it will happen, or at least we’ll get some sort of timetable as to when we will.
After all Developing Extensions for Google Chrome is still on the Agenda, in the very first timeslot of the conference (after the Keynote that is) in fact. I’m expecting to get a formal announcement about Extensions either during the Keynote itself or at least during that particular session. But we’ll find out if I’m right tomorrow. Hopefully, I’ll find time to write up some notes I took from the Conference over the next couple of days, but if it is anything like last year, time will be short indeed.
On a related matter, if any of my readers are here at Google I/O, leave me a comment, or tweet to me at @nickmoline, I’m looking forward to meeting with fellow developers during the conference.
