Google is canceling its I/O developer event this year, amid the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. The event was originally scheduled to run from May 12 to 14, but because of concerns around the coronavirus, it is now canceling the event.
” Due to concerns around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in accordance with health guidance from the CDC, WHO, and other health authorities, we have decided to cancel the physical Google I/O event at Shoreline Amphitheatre”.
Google said in a statement. “Over the coming weeks, we will explore other ways to evolve Google I/O to best connect with and continue to build our developer community. We’ll continue to update the Google I/O website.”
Already Facebook has canceled its annual F8 developers conference over growing concerns about the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
