Google I/O, or simply I/O, is an annual developer conference held by Google in Mountain View, California. The name "I/O"[1] is taken from the number googol, with the "I" representing the first digit "1" in a googol and the "O" representing the second digit "0" in the number.[2] The format of the event is similar to Google Developer Day.
