The Summit, which will be held Nov. 20-21, 2013, at Google's Mountain View, Calif., headquarters, was announced in an Aug. 13 post on the Google Chrome Developers Google+ page. "Join Chrome engineers and other leading developers for a two-day exploration of new web APIs, multi-device workflows, performance tips and the guts of Blink," states the post. "Chrome Dev Summit is a great opportunity to rub elbows with fellow web developers, Chrome engineers, and Chrome Project Managers," according to the Summit's Website. "This is a limited-space event, and we know not everyone can travel. In order to provide the widest access to the content, we'll stream the presentations live and post to YouTube afterwards."
Registration for the event has not yet opened, but Chrome developers who want to give their input on sessions at the conference can offer their suggestions through a brief online survey that has been set up to plan the event. The questionnaire asks developers whether they work on front ends, back ends, full stacks, standards or specialized development, while also seeking input on the kinds of content they would be interested in hearing about at the Summit, including mobile, tools, languages, Web components, Chrome apps and more. The survey also asks which Web browsers developers are developing for, as well as information about their favorite APIs, open-source projects and challenges they are facing with their projects.
