Developer interest in Android is skyrocketing, as evidenced by the selling out of the I/O 2011 event in 59 minutes.

In a series of Tweets, Google (GOOG) VP Vic Gundotra details the quick-selling Google developer event which seems to indicate that developer interest in Android has increased markedly over the past few years.

Google I/O is a developer focused event that takes place in May at San Francisco’s Moscone convention center.  Last year, Google announced a variety of new projects including GoogleTV, the ChromeOS netbook and Android 2.2 Froyo.
