Once again, Google isn't straying too far from its home turf for its annual I/O conference. Like last year it'll be held at Mountain View's Shoreline Amphitheatre. It'll be a bit around the same time again too, running from May 17th to the 19th, according to 9to5 Google. The tech juggernaut is going about this reveal in a rather nerdy way, too.

Rather than issue a press release or publish a blog post (thus far) Google has dropped a few clues for developers on GitHub, tasking them to suss out the location via map coordinates and code. It's an interesting approach, for sure, and should keep people playing along for a bit to help pass the time.

Once the event days actually arrive, you can count on a keynote presentation about the future of Android and Google products (naturally) and maybe even a peek at the new version of the Pixel and Daydream. We saw Nougat last year (née Android N), so there's a good chance will see the follow up as well. Anyone else have a craving for Oreos now?
