Initially, Google teased the information of I/O 2019 in a puzzle. The puzzle was a 12-line block of a tweet with a URL which leads to a video to tease the schedule of I/O 2019, and this puzzle was decoded by a twitter user named Till Kottmann within hours of posting the puzzle. The reference was hidden inside the puzzle that was posted on Twitter in the official page of Google’s Developers to get the date of I/O 2019.
