With over 5,000 developers, more than 90 sessions, over 180 companies in the Sandbox and a steady stream of major announcements, it’s been a busy two days at Google I/O here in San Francisco. For us, the best part of I/O was getting to meet and talk with developers and see all the amazing things you’re building. Getting to drive the Mondo Spider at the after party was pretty awesome too!

Vic Gundotra kicked off the Day 1 keynote which featured the future of the web with HTML5, WebM, the Chrome Web Store, Google App Engine for Business and much, much more. Read the full Day 1 keynote recap here or watch the full length video below:

Day 2 kicked off early with a keynote featuring Android 2.2 (code name: Froyo), sneak peeks into the future of Android, mobile app monetization, and the official announcement of Google TV. Here is the Android part of the Day 2 keynote, and we will update this post later when the Google TV segment is ready. (UPDATE: You can find the Google TV segment here.)

We have been blogging and tweeting non-stop, so feel free to read up on all the exciting new launches on our Code blog and @googleio Twitter feed.
