Two years ago, while watching Google I/O, I met this talented guy’s name on the screen. Vic Gundotra (born June 14, 1968), is Senior Vice-President of Social for Google and was previously a general manager at Microsoft. Vic Gundotra is senior vice president of Social at Google, responsible for its social products such as +1. Previously he was a Vice President of Engineering responsible for developer evangelism and open source programs. He also manages applications development. Prior to Google, Vic worked 15 years at Microsoft as General Manager of Microsoft’s developer outreach efforts. At Microsoft, he was responsible for a variety of products and operating systems, including Windows 3.0, NT, Windows XP, and Vista.
He is born talented manager and leader, his acting, leading and interest into new technology are familiar to me. Because I am also interested in new creation and technology. He said in his last interview that the time has come for Google I/O, the search giant’s annual developer event. Google uses I/O as a forum for unveiling some of its most significant user-facing innovations and key parts of its technology roadmap.
What is Google I/O?
Google I/O was started in 2008. The “I” and “O” stand for “Innovation in the Open“, and input/output. The format of the event is similar to that of the Google Developer Day.
Google I/O is an annual two-day developer-focused conference held by Google in San Francisco, California Google I/O features highly technical, in-depth sessions focused on building web, mobile, and enterprise applications with Google and open web technologies such as Android, Chrome, Chrome OS, Google APIs, Google Web Toolkit, App Engine, and more. Google I/O 2011 has shown that Google is on a mission and expressed the intention to present its products in nearly all the tech markets. The intention to release its plans within the next several months and years seems to be unreachable. The representatives of Google amplified the idea that their reliance on search and advertising is completed and the new technologies should take place. Now, we can see the foundation for these ideas as Google is trying to get its share in the market of Smartphone. The purchase of AdMob, dated 2009 appeared to be a step in taking part in mobile advertising. Surprisingly, Google didn’t say anything about its development in the market of mobile communication as well as mobile advertising.
The most impressive announcement of Google was Google Music. This very service will provide customers with the access to music over the web. The lucky owners of Androids will be able to reach the music files through the cloud. Seems that Google wants to become a leading player in the market but, now it doesn’t present any threat to the iTunes of Apple.
Here is detailed information, watch it till the end, so interesting to know how world is developing:
