A new species of I/O speaker: VCs who can code

MAY 10, 2010
With Google I/O less than 2 weeks away, we’re working hard on putting the finishing touches on the 85+ technical sessions we have in store for developers. We’re thrilled for the 180+ speakers who’ll be joining us at I/O, all of whom are talented, technical, and brilliant in their own right. One group of speakers I’m particularly excited about and would like to shine the spotlight on: the venture capital crowd.

This is the first time we’re having VCs speak at I/O. We’re excited about the ones who’ll be participating in I/O sessions. Not only are their insights on technology highly regarded, but most of them are also programmers by trade, have been in the shoes of many I/O attendees (as a developer or entrepreneur), and still tinker with code in their spare time. They’ve got strong opinions on developer tools and technology and often don’t agree with each other, which should make for exciting sessions:

We're looking forward to adding the VC perspective to I/O this year. With just 9 days left, the countdown continues!
