SpinDance to Provide Keynote Address as a Platinum Sponsor of Upcoming Google I/O Event in Grand Rapids

SpinDance, Inc. of Holland, Michigan, will participate as a platinum-level sponsor at the upcoming Google I/O Extended conference in Grand Rapids this month. SpinDance Software Lead, David Keenan, will provide a keynote address on the features and benefits Scala offers Android development.

Google I/O, held this year at Moscone Center West in San Francisco, California, is one of the premier technology conferences in the world. 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 others.

To leverage the tremendous popularity of the event, Google created I/0 Extended for local developer communities to stream the event live, plus add a layer of local speakers and breakout sessions to complement the program. The local Grand Rapids event will be held in the Loosemore Auditorium at the Richard M. DeVos Center, courtesy of Grand Valley State University, on Thursday, May 28, and Friday, May 29.

As our West Michigan developer community grows, hosting events like this one are crucial to keeping the momentum going.”
