Google I/O and Beyond

[This post is by Reto Meier, Android Developer Relations Tech Lead]

With most of the Android Developer Relations team now fully recovered from Google I/O 2012, I'm happy to announce that all of the videos for the Google I/O 2012 Android Sessions are now available!

I've included in the Google I/O 12 - The Android Sessions playlist (embedded below), as well as (in keeping with our newly redesigned developer site) in playlists for each developer category: Design, develop, and distribute.



Google I/O is always a highlight on the Android Developer Relations team's calendar; it's our best opportunity to talk directly to the Android developer community. Unfortunately I/O only happens once a year, and only a lucky few thousand can join us in person.

That's why we've been exploring more scalable approaches to interacting with developers, and with the launch of Google Developers Live, we have a way for the entire Android Developer community to view and participate in live, interactive developer-focused broadcasts all year round, and all across the world.

This week we resume our weekly interactive development Q&A Office Hours in three time zones (US, EMEA, and APAC).  We know many of you have questions related to specific I/O sessions, so we've invited all the speakers to join us, starting with this Wednesday's Android Developer Office Hours with Chet Haase, Romain Guy, Xavier Ducrohet, and Tor Norbye from the What's New in Jelly Bean and What's new in Android Developer Tools sessions.

On Friday afternoons we broadcast The Friday Review of Apps and The Friday Review of Games, two more relaxed sessions where we review self-nominated apps and games, providing feedback to the developers in the hope of discovering some feature-worthy gems.

Every Android Developer Live broadcast is recorded and available from Google Developers Live, the Android Developers YouTube channel, and directly from developer.android.com. We've also begun to make each of the Office Hours, as well as the Android sessions from Google I/O 2012, available as part of the Android Developers Live audio podcast.

We're really excited to use Google Developers Live to interact more regularly with you, the most important members of the Android ecosystem, and will be looking to expand our lineup to include regular interviews with app developers and Android engineers.

Got great ideas for how we can expand our live program? Let us know on Google+.
