The Google I/O conference was hosted in San Francisco on May 28, 2008. For two days, the programming community convened to learn about development technologies that are moving web applications forward. The Google/IO conference provided the opportunity to attend 90 sessions focused on the next generation of Web applications with Google and open technologies.

Jeffrey Barke, senior developer and information architect at theMechanism - New York, was on location to attend several of the sessions.
During this month’s NY Web Standards Meetup, Jeffrey will review Google's developer products and share conference highlights centered around Gears, Google App Engine and the Google Ajax APIs. "I've never been at another conference where I learned so much in so little time and left so anxious to get home and start playing with these fabulous tools," said Jeffrey Barke.
