Vic Gundotra – SVP
Well, hello, everybody. Hello. On behalf of Google, let me extend our warmest welcome to all of you. To the over 6,000 people here at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, welcome. And to our Google I/O viewing parties that are happening all around the world, over 350 different parties with over 30,000 in attendance, welcome.
And finally, let me also welcome the over 1 million people who will be watching this event live stream on YouTube.
Welcome to Google I/O. This is our fifth year, and we’re going to make this Google I/O incredibly special. Our teams have worked very hard to put on something really great for you. And we still have some surprises left. At the end of the day, however, it’s not just about the hard work our teams have done. This conference is really about you – developers.
When you think back over the last five years, things like Google Chrome or Android were in their infancy. We owe, in no small measure, the success of our efforts due to your support. Thank you. Thank you for betting with Google, and thank you for supporting us. Thank you for spending three days of your life here at the Google I/O conference. We hope you’re going to absolutely love it.
Now one small favor to ask, please. f you have a hot spot, please turn the hot spot off, as it’s going to greatly increase our chances of having a successful set of demos. With that, let’s get this started.
