Sketchup Blog - News and Notes from the Sketchup folks

The SketchUp team goes to Google I/O

Last week was Google's annual developer conference: Google I/O. This year was my first year attending and, I have to say, it was a fantastic conference. There were lots of inspiring sessions and presentations on Google's numerous APIs. On the 1st day keynote, each attendee was given a complimentary new android phone. Google Wave was announced on the 2nd day keynote. Dozens of developers were showing off their work in the Sandbox demos. All of this combined with great food, snacks and bottomless pots of coffee made the conditions for innovation perfect.

This year, the SketchUp Ruby API didn't have its own dedicated session. However, we were mentioned several times in the Geo API and O3D talks. Also, few of our long time users were able to attend the show and represent SketchUp in the Developer Sandbox demo area. Todd Burch, Rick Wilson, and Chris Fullmer from took turns showing off the work they do using the SketchUp Ruby API. We'd like to thank them for taking the time out of their busy schedules to attend.

If you want to check out the sessions go to this website (session videos are going live on a rolling basis). All of the Developer Sandbox interviews can be found here. Also, if you're interested, check out some of our favorite photos from Google I/O.
