Registration for the Google’s annual Google I/O developer conference is already open and the chase to get hold of a ticket for the event appears to be tough and challenging as it has always been. It is open until 8 pm today ET for those who have not picked their ticket yet.
Roping in thousands of developers around the globe, Google I/O targets on assisting people build mobile, web and enterprise applications. The tickets for the event are priced $900 for general crowd and $300 for the academic population which includes students, professors and staff at teaching institutions.
Filing registration alone will not guarantee anyone to attend the conference. Google has mentioned on its website that it would be using lottery process and randomly select people from the list of the qualified applicants after the registration is closed. The chosen candidates would be notified via email.
Last year at Google I/O, the main focus was on Android, wearables like its smart watches and Google TV. But, Google Glass and the Google’s recently acquired bevy of robotics companies did not get much attention or focus at the event. Also it is fascinating to know that the Google I/O badges were sold out in less than half an hour since the opening of the registration.
