Last year, Google canned plans for its I/O developer conference because COVID-19 cases were rampant all across the world. This year, even with things cooling down and folks getting vaccinated, no chances for a super spreader event are taking place, so Google has made it official that the event will be 100% virtual and free to attend by all.
This news comes from Google’s dedicated events page, hidden by some puzzles that were solved by the 9to5Google crew. Thanks for doing the heavy lifting, friends! Once solved, we can see that Google I/O will be virtual, free to attend, and take place between May 18 through May 20.
If you care to give the puzzles a go yourself, have at it.
