Google is opening its doors to the public and making its new technologies available to foster technological progress and innovation.
The Google Developer Group of North Jersey is hosting a Google I/O Extended event Wednesday at Montclair State University. The event will include live streaming of Google’s annual I/O developers conference, which is being held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Attendees at the Montclair location also will have the opportunity to participate in a Hangout with Google directly from the I/O in California.
The event also includes appearances exclusive to the Montclair event, including an introduction of the Android Wear smart watch, a technology not yet available to the public. Guests also will have the chance to take home one of two Android Wears.
There will also be a large focus on Polymer, a new web development language similar to HTML.
Keynote speakers included founding organizer of Lean Startup Machine Newark April Peters and Todd Nakamura, the founder of GDG North Jersey.
“There’s a lot of things that are out there in advance of what’s being released to the public,” Nakamura said. “The way this whole network works, it’s an advancement of the new.”
