Google Posts The Last Of The Google I/O 2009 Sessions Online

There are lots of nifty conferences out there for software developers, JavaOne, Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference, Google I/O, etc. One of the best things about them is that many of them no longer treat all of the learning sessions and panel discussions held there as though they were treasure to be buried.
