On Tuesday, Google announced that they are holding a two-day event for Web developers known as the Chrome Dev Summit. At the event they’ll discuss new API’s, multi-device workflows, performance tips, and Blink with Chrome engineers. You can think of it as Google I/O specifically for Chrome. Maybe now Google I/O will be more Android centric than Chrome? Or perhaps Android might get it’s own Dev Summit in the beginning of the year, then have Google I/O in the middle of the year and Chrome at the end. Maybe that’s how it’ll work? We’ll have to wait and see.
The summit is going to be held on November 20th and 21st. It’ll be live streamed from their headquarters in Mountain View, on YouTube. We aren’t expecting any news to come out of this event, other than new API’s fro developers. But we’ll be keeping our eyes and ears open to see what goes down during the Chrome Dev Summit this November.
Right now, Google is asking developers that are interested, to take a seven-question survey on Google Docs and to join a Google+ community. At this time, registration isn’t open, but we’ll be sure to keep our eyes open and find out when it does and let all of our readers know.
There’s likely to be news about Chrome as well as Chrome OS discussed during this summit. So we could see some nice and big updates for both the browser and OS after the summit over and done. Which would be pretty sweet. This leaves the question though, will there be less Chrome talk at future Google I/O’s now? Why not have an Android Dev Summit? I think that would be more exciting. At least to me it would be since, we are an Android site and not a Chrome/Chrome OS centric site. But as always we’ll bring you whatever news comes out of this summit from Mountain View.
