If you are a fan of Google, a developer, or a Google enthusiast then Google I/O is your Superbowl of the year. This is the conference run by Google that brings the latest Google developing tools taught by Googlers themselves. What more could you ask for as a Google fan and a developer. Not only that but usually we hear of both new hardware and software being announced at these events. Last year the new Nexus 7 was announced and this year it could be the Google watch. But how do you actually get a ticket.
Usually signing up for Google I/O has been a mess with tickets being sold out in minutes. This time Google has decided to go for a lottery approach rather than a mad dash to sign up. Therefore, you can take your time as registration is now open till April 18th 2pm PDT. The cost of the registration is $900 for general admission and $300 for academics. You’ll need to sign in with a Google+ account and have a credit card setup on your Google Wallet account. If you are chosen then your credit will then be charged.
Although the price is high, Google usually give out more than the ticket price in goodies. I’m signed up and I hope I can finally go this year. It would be a great treat to cover Google I/O 2014 live and in person. If you’d like to attend then follow the link below for registration and good luck. And maybe I’ll see you in San Francisco.Google I/O 2014 Registration
