Google I/O 2014 registration was originally slated to begin last week, but in a post on Google+, the company announced that it was pushing the registration window back a week in order to further perfect the registration process. Registration for Google I/O 2014 will officially open tomorrow, April 15th at 4:00 PM PDT and will run through April 18th at 2:00 PM PDT.
While in past years Google has run I/O registration on a first come, first serve basis, it will be adopting a new strategy this time around. This year, people interested in attending can sign up during the 4 day window and once the window closes, Google will randomly select who will get the opportunity to purchase an actual ticket. This is very similar to the process Apple used for WWDC signups this year, as well.
Google I/O is currently scheduled to take place June 25th – 26th at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Tickets, should you be one of the lucky ones chosen, will run you $900. Unless, however, you are somehow tied to the academic filed, in which case your ticket will only cost $300.
It’s always a mystery as to what we can expect to see at I/O. It could be that we see a new edition of Glass, an Android TV set-top box, the next version of the Android operating system, or something totally off the wall. Nevertheless, we’ll be there live to cover everything Google has in store.
