Google IO starts today,
What as developers are we hoping to see from Google, apart from moving away from Java and onto C# ;)

I'm hoping for the Xbox tablet (a rebadge Surface Mini). It's a vain hope, but a guy can dream.
I'm expect there will be some bang and flash AAA games, not much mention of the Kinect or the non-gaming parts of the Xbox One. Games, Games, Games has to be Microsoft's focus, to try and reduce the perceived gap between PS4 and Xbox.
I'd been put off purchasing a full licence by the rumours of Microsoft buying Xamarin.
I guess now is the time to spend some of my hobbyist cash on the VS integration as the buyout doesn't appear to be on the cards anytime soon.
Its a big outlay for me, but quality dev tools need to be encouraged.
I think the author needs to have a look at Visual Studio and NuGet. Also the stuff Microsoft have been doing with Azure deployments.
I'm waiting for a new version of Tie Fighter, which I think was the best of the X-Wing series of games. Great story and really fun to play. X-Wing:Alliance had the better graphics but there was just something really cool about flying alongside Darth Vader.
Looking forward to Elite too. Spent many a Saturday moving cargo between systems and then shooting up space-stations to get the police after me so I could get more combat.
