What to expect at I/O’14 – Design


Not much is left before the Google I/O 2014 event takes place and Roman Nurik, a Design Advocate at Google, has made a post on Google Developers Blog about what to expect at Google I/O 2014 in terms of design.

This year, the event is suited for designers and developers who have an interest in design. He mentions that the event includes a “Designing for wearables” session that will be held on Wednesday at 4-5 PM where interested audiences will get to hear the company’s “take on new design approaches to wearable technology” and the process for Android Wear and Glass.

Then there will be a number of workshops including a “Design sprints with Google Ventures” workshop that will be held on Thursday at 11AM – 1PM and will provide a series of workshops “ranging from designing for Glass to effectively using data in your design processes, including this workshop on design techniques that you can use to gather data about customers, get your team focused on the same challenges, quickly sketch new ideas, and turn those sketches into prototypes.”

In addition, there will be a “Cross-platform design panel” on Thursday where Google designers will provide their opinion on designing for multiple platforms and give attendees a chance to meet with “Googlers”.
