I’m attending Google Developers #IO19 actionable Conference on air g.co/io/live for the third year in a raw. I/O 2019 is characterised with everything actionable! Starting from deeply technical knowledge coders are implementing in cloud solutions, through scaling games, creating Actions with Google Assistant to facilitating how users are navigating Google platforms, it’s getting things done.
Unlike the previous years I/O 2017 and I/O 2018 we are having an extended event in my home city I/O Extended 2019 Sofia . Being the first Google Gold Product Expert from Bulgaria, I’m glad that soon after The Developers Roadshow in Sofia and Dev Fest , young people who code in my country are part of the Global Google Developers Community.
Google I/O 2019 is taking place from 7th to 9th March in Mountain View, California gathering thousand participants at Shoreline Amphitheatre. It is a big event! Ony Googlers who are taking part are 2500 people!
Highlights from Google #io19
Right from The Keynote, the focus is on privacy and security of users online. Instant access to own data by one-tap clicking your Avatar on any of Google applications: it is a great solution in response to increased requirements users are having.
Users are in control of their location by auto-deleting location history and by Incognito mode on Google Maps. These features are just been announced at #io19.
Digital wellbeing concept has proven excellent results and Google are introducing further wellbeing features such as dark theme, captions on video, parental control, focus mode and many more time-saving and health-oriented options while navigating Google Apps on any device.

Predictable Google leadership, I would call it!
