The time is almost here, Google I/O is just around the corner and it’s registration is even closer, tomorrow. If you have been rejected or haven’t been able to get tickets to any of the past Google I/O’s this year may be the year you finally get in due to Google’s new registration policy.
Google’s usual registration process for I/O is to open up registration for everybody and have a limited number of tickets, this way caused the event to be sold out in minutes the last few years. Google saw this as a problem and in turn changed the registration process so that you now have three days to apply (April 8th to 10th) and people will be randomly selected.
Google I/O will take place on June 25th and 26th and will not be cheap. If you are lucky enough to get randomly selected you will then have to pay $900 for your ticket ($300 if you’re a student). And make sure you have your photo ID’s ready kids because Google will not let you pick up your badge without it. You can check out the official Google I/O website by following the link below.
[UPDATE] It looks like Google has abruptly changed the dates of the registration to April 15th through April 18th. Besides pushing the registration date back a week, Google has also added a day for anyone to register for the developer conference. In addition to this change, Google has changed the dates accordingly in the Q&A section of the website and have also added that the winners would be notified the following week after registering. Sorry for everyone that was super excited to register for the event in the morning.
