Google I/O, the company's annual developer conference, will kick off on May 17, 2017, and will run for three days through May 19, 2017. Google has made it official where and when the event will happen but in an unconventional way.
The puzzle revealed that the Google I/O event will take place at Shoreline Amphitheater, just like previous year with a bunch of tents around for guests to take a seat. We still don't know the name of the next version of Android or the new features it will bring on the table. Anyone else ready for a Pixel 2?
This isn't totally uncharacteristic for Google - the company often sends out programming challenges and quizzes to give developers a chance to win tickets to Google I/O and other prizes.

Mundt explained that this change will enable a wider range of offers and lower prices for consumers. The watchdog said that there was no further reason to continue the investigation.
Google, in a most unusual manner, asked the developers of GITHUB to find out the dates for the Google I/O 2017 event. The third puzzle reveals yet another location, this time in Warsaw, Poland, and the fourth containing a riddle in a corrupted image leading to Thailand. The Google I/O website has been updated and is now called Google I/O 2017, but the site doesn't offer any information about the upcoming event.
Having the conference in Google's "own backyard " for its 10th anniversary in 2016 proved a success in being able to accommodate a larger number of attendees although long queues resulted in some problems from heat stress.
What we expect from this year's I/O are more details about Andromeda, Google's unified platform, updates on Google Home and more. Past year they conducted a meet on artificial intelligence, virtual reality, daydream and its assistant-focused Allo app along with Google Home speaker. We'll have to wait and see if some hardware also makes its way to Google I/O 2017 as well.
