Recommended Google I/O 2017 viewing

Google I/O 2017 is over. Like previous years, all the sessions have been published on Youtube.
I'd recommend watching all the sessions if you can, located at this link: http://bit.ly/2rnbGTO

Not sure where to start? Here are some of sessions I attended and found worth recommending..

Single Codebase, Two Apps with Flutter and Firebase http://bit.ly/2rn3HpR
