The inescapable tech behemoth, Google, announced the dates for its next developer conference. But, at least initially, they didn’t use words to tell everyone. Where’s the fun in that?
There’s a rather complicated puzzle to solve that will let you know the dates for this year’s I/O. You can have a crack at it here. If you’d rather not, then we’ll just tell you.
Can you untangle this string? https://t.co/PyiD8ZsMBQ

This year, Google I/O will take place on the 11th and 12th of May.
Does this mean we’re a Google Dev now?
Just like last year’s event, it will be mostly online. We say ‘mostly’ because it’ll be streamed in front of a live audience. But that will not include you. We might get to see Sundar and friends standing outside, in the Shoreline Amphitheatre, perhaps. Thankfully, not in the metaverse, or Googaverse(?). At least not yet, anyway.
Unlike last year’s event, this one will be free for anyone to virtually attend as there won’t be any ticket system. We’re not sure what made them think that was a good idea, but it seems they’ve got the right thinking cap on now.
Registration is now open where you can sign up for news, and all things related to the event. That will be disseminated to everyone a little closer to the time. If you don’t have a Google Developer account, you’ll have to set one up first. Or, you could just keep your eye on our website. If Google says anything noteworthy, we’ll let you know.
We’ve already had a squizz at the first preview of Android 13 so we’re expecting to learn more about that.
