Google Developer Day Japan on September 28 welcomed 1700 attendees across Tokyo and a satellite location in Kyoto.



During our keynote presentation, we shared updates and demos for each of our global priority areas: Android, Chrome & HTML5 and Cloud Computing. To watch the keynote video, go to http://youtube.com/GoogleDevelopersJa (keynote starts 5 minutes in, some parts will be in Japanese). Thanks to our Japanese developer community, Japan is the 2nd largest global market for Android app uploads and App Engine usage. We were happy to share that worldwide, Android is now at 200,000 activations per day and App Engine is at 90,000 active developers per month. We announced an open source font for Mac OS and support for the Japanese Transliteration API.

We also welcomed over 30 Sandbox developers and hosted 22 technical sessions, with speakers from both Google Mountain View and Google Tokyo. Two additional highlights at GDD Japan were the Android-based Android robot, built by one of the Sandbox developers, and the Chrome bento lunch box.
