google-ioGoogle’s annual I/O developer’s conference is coming up next week in San Francisco, and 6,000 lucky geeks will be flooding the Moscone Convention Center for all kinds of Google goodness: Chrome, Android, Maps, Ads, and — of course — Google Glass.

But what if you’re not one of the 6,000?

No worries, you can participate too. Google is “going live” from I/O, and pretty much anyone who wants to participate can join in. Here’s how:

  1. Keynotes
    Google will stream the major presentations from 9AM to 7PM PST for both May 15 and 16.
  2. Interviews with Googlers
    Google Developers Live will feature interviews with Google developers and managers throughout Google I/O.
  3. News updates
    The Google Developers Google+ page will have updates (as will we — see below)
  4. Full sessions
    And full sessions will be broadcast on the Google Developers YouTube channel. No word from Google on when exactly they’ll go live, but Google says they will be recorded an made “rapidly available.” Hopefully, that will be same-day.

And, of course, we’ll be at Google I/O. Our own intrepid Jolie O’Dell and Devindra Hardawar will be at the event, seeking out the best news and reporting almost-live here on VentureBeat.

Oh, and by the way, if you haven’t been to Google’s I/O home page, give it a click. Then click the “I” and the “O,” and build some binary code at the bottom of the page.
