Instead of publishing a press release, Google has announced the details for its I/O 2017 developer conference in a Twitter puzzle. The company put out a series of tweets with clues; for example, one said, “Around the world, from here to there, to the most clever minds, the secret will share.”
Forum members from Hacker News claim to have solved the puzzles. They say that the event will be held May 17-19 at the Shoreline Amphitheater, which was also the venue for last year’s I/O event.
Google has yet to confirm the details. The official I/O website instructs visitors to “Check back soon for more details.”
