First of all, what’s Google I/O? It is an annual developer conference held by Google in Mountain View, California. I/O was inaugurated in 2008 and is organized by the executive team. “I/O” stands for input/output, as well as the slogan “Innovation in the Open”.
Over the year Google has created new solutions based on technology and market trends, during this event they grouped them over 3 days explanation and exploration, watching this event is a great opportunity to “predict the future”, checking the trends that will become popular soon and that Google is going to invest in the next couple of years, so take your notes, think in possibilities and be prepared for it.
You are able to tag as favorite the talks that most interest you through the schedule page, I already have my favorites, but these I selected as the most potential e-commerce trends.
Learn about the latest and greatest Google technologies on their ready-to-code page, you’ll see a lot of examples about how to use the new technologies and how could you start to apply them today. I recommend these 3 below, but you can check the complete Codelabs list made for other Google events here.
- Build a Fast Checkout Experience on the Web with Google Pay
- Add structured data to your web pages
- Build Actions for the Google Assistant (Level 1)
