During the past two weeks, 300 of our most loyal developers discovered a registration code to Google I/O 2014, upon completion of a space adventure to [37.7829° N, 122.4033° W, Earth], aka the Moscone Center West.
Throughout your hunt for clues, we hope you also had the opportunity to learn more about the variety of documentation and resources available for developers, covering different products and platforms:
  • Google Developers home: the starting point for a diverse set of Google APIs from Cloud, to Games, to Google Wallet. This comprehensive site includes blogs, API documentation, developer tools, and information about Google developer programs, groups, training, and open-source projects.

  • Android and Google Developers YouTube Channels: central resource for developers around the world, of all experience levels, interested in learning more about the Google Developer ecosystem. It includes tutorial videos, high level overviews, and the latest news.
  • Udacity videos: Google Developers has teamed up with Udacity to provide accessible, engaging, and highly effective online education, including cutting-edge classes about Mobile Web Development and HTML5 Game Development.
The lucky Captains who found the leads first, were guided by a robot co-pilot called Icarus Odessa (I.O. initials, get it?!) on a spaced-themed text adventure game, filled with starships, asteroids, and a few sci-fi references. We were seriously impressed by the clever strategies you used to discover our clues, and thrilled to see the community interact throughout the quest. If you’re curious to meet Icarus, have some fun playing the adventure game here.

Our goal was to reward you - our developer power users - with the opportunity to experience the magic of I/O first hand. We know that not everyone will be able to attend in person, but you can still join us virtually: visit to watch the live stream, download the mobile app, and learn more about Extended I/O events happening near you.

We hope to see you in June!
