Last year, Google went from releasing puzzles to guessing the date of the next developer conference to canceling the in-person event before finally canceling the whole thing altogether. The good news is that Google will live on I / 0 2021, albeit in virtual form. The better news is it̵
Of course, it’s not Google without a fun puzzle to announce the date, so if you go to Google’s I / O site, you’re left with a riddle to solve. You could go to the trouble of solving the riddle, learn how to use punch cards, and jump through the hoops. Or you can let someone else do the hard work for you.
The fine folks at 9to5Google have already solved the puzzle and determined that this year’s I / O will be on May 18, 19, and 20. It will not be a personal event, for better or for worse. But since it’s going virtual, there’s one clear benefit: for the first time, the developer conference is free.
You can now bypass the puzzle and go directly to registration. This year promises Q&A during sessions, workshops, Ask Me Anything (AMA) sessions and more. We will of course check for interesting Android news and we will give you all the details as soon as they are announced.
