Google I/O 2018 will take place on May 8-10 at Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View, United States. Last month Google devs in twitter teased with a puzzle for devs to solve to know the date of I/O along with the location which usually Google does every year.
Few guys from Discord Grp worked hard to solve the puzzle & finally did it. The puzzle contains door codes for each section & with the respective clues for it.
Iwata – Sister
01 60 80 – Upside-Down
Yam – Mirror
Aeschylus – Theater
The answer to the first clue, the sister city of Iwata is Mountain View. When you read the upside-down version of 01 60 80, it will be 08, 09, 10. The third one Yam is the mirrored version of May when combined with earlier clue suggests that the event will be taking place from May 08 – 10. Aeschylus was a Greek philosopher, who is shorthand for Shoreline Amphitheater.
So when all the things combined, it’s the event date & place. May 08 -10, Amphitheater, Moutain View, US.
